Phoenix Children’s Hospital is seeking a Pediatric Hematopathologist to join the professional staff of the Division of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. The Pediatric Hematopathologist must be board-certified or board-eligible in Hematopathology. The hematopathologist will join a growing diagnostic service with two other staff hematopathologists. The case mix currently includes approximately 750 peripheral blood smears, 550 bone marrow studies, 100 lymph node evaluations, and 400 flow cytometric immunophenotyping studies annually.
The ideal candidate must have well-rounded experience in pediatric hematopathology and cytopathology. Additional expertise is desirable in coagulation interpretation, hemoglobin electrophoresis, primary immune deficiency evaluation, and/or NGS-based minimal residual disease test development, in order to align with our strategic growth opportunities. Although not required, candidates with dual board certification are encouraged to apply and would have opportunity to continue practice in their desired field. Other subspecialties that would complement our team include pediatric and perinatal pathology, dermatopathology, gastrointestinal and liver pathology, cardiac pathology, transplant pathology, and clinical chemistry.
The pediatric hematopathologist will become a member of the Phoenix Children’s Medical Group and will report to the Division Chief of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Professionalism, leadership, interpersonal communication skills, and adaptability are essential. Active involvement in resident, fellow and medical student teaching through affiliated programs is expected. Academic appointments are encouraged through our relationships with University of Arizona College of Medicine, Creighton University School of Medicine, and Mayo Clinic School of Medicine. The ideal candidate will be an accomplished academic hematopathologist with excellence in scientific knowledge, teaching ability, and a record of scholarship.
