Breast Surgeon - University Affiliated position - Metro, TN

Job Type
7 Sep 2023

The University Department of Surgery is seeking a fellowship-trained breast surgeon to join an established and growing Breast Surgical Oncology Section within the Division of Surgical Oncology. This is a full-time clinical appointment with associated non-tenure-track academic appointment. Candidates of all experience levels are encouraged to apply. Salary and academic/clinical rank will be commensurate with experience. Leadership opportunities exist.

The University is the region s only academic medical center and largest single provider of cancer care. The Cancer Institute (CI) offers a broad spectrum of multidisciplinary cancer specialists and services to care for patients and their families.

Who We Are:

Our Breast Surgical Oncology Section focuses exclusively on the care of patients with breast related concerns including cancer, benign lesions, high risk populations, and survivorship. The section currently includes 2 fellowship-trained, dedicated breast surgeons and due to continued growth, we are seeking a third dedicated breast surgeon. New breast cancer patients are prospectively reviewed at our multidisciplinary breast conference where surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, fellowship trained breast radiologists, pathologists, genetic counselors, nurse navigators and clinical trials coordinators gather weekly to provide an evidence-based, consensus opinion from the team to develop an individualized plan of care specific to each patient s diagnosis and situation. Our onsite partners in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offer a full-range of breast reconstruction options including both implant- and flap-based, performed by fellowship trained, board-certified plastic surgeons.

This new faculty physician will work exclusively at the main academic medical center. This program has an established referral base with potential for further growth. While this position is primarily clinical, there are opportunities for teaching both residents and medical students, as well as research, whether it be clinical, translational, or basic science.

What Sets Us Apart:

The CI offers a broad spectrum of cancer specialists and is equipped with features that support and enhance the comprehensive services provided to oncology patients. The CI building was designed to meet the needs of patients, families, physicians, nurses and our full treatment team, all under one roof. The CI houses all of the following:

  • University Breast Center
  • Radiation Oncology
  • Diagnostic Center with PET/CT imaging
  • Surgical Oncology practice
  • Gynecology Oncology practice
  • Medical Oncology practices (2)
  • Integrative Healthcare program
  • Chemotherapy Infusion Center with its own lab & onsite oncology pharmacists
  • Clinical Trials
  • Genetic Counseling and Testing
  • Biobanking for research
  • Patient Boutique
  • Onsite Financial Counseling

The cost of living is below the national average despite significant population growth. The city enjoys a healthy arts and theatre community, outdoor adventures, family themed destinations and is the home of a prestigious University.

The University is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

Basic Qualifications:

Qualified candidates will have completed a breast or surgical oncology fellowship and be board certified/eligible in Surgery. Candidates must possess superior surgical, leadership, and communication skills, and demonstrate the ability to develop interdisciplinary collaborations.
