University of Tennessee Health Science Center

Physician Hematologist/Faculty Appointment - Memphis, TN

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) is seeking a full-time fellowship trained physician hematologist with interests in non-malignant hematology and specific expertise in hemostasis and thrombosis to lead our hemophilia program. The preferred candidate would have 3 or more years of experience post-fellowship in preparation for the breadth of leadership required for the position. Clinical experience would be primarily focused on hemophilia, although all hematology faculty participate in a fellow-driven hospital consult service responsible for general hematology patients with diagnoses including but not limited to: anemia, hemophilia, hemostasis, sickle cell, thalassemia, thrombosis, low platelets and platelet disorder (ITTP, aTTP, aHUS, ET), myeloproliferative disorders and abnormalities of iron metabolism. 

UTHSC has a long history as the premiere hematology program in a region covering a population extending to as many as 3.3 million inhabitants in Tennessee and surrounding communities including: Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, parts of Missouri and Alabama. In support of this public mission across 6 states, UTHSC has had a longstanding Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center (HTC) Grant supporting a 340b pharmacy. It is anticipated that the candidate would assume leadership of activities related to the grant and related 340b programming. As such, the preferred candidate should have qualifications that would allow leadership in the HTC grant. As holder of an HTC Grant, the institution supports a full spectrum of integrated and multidisciplinary care and research required to participate in that program.

UTHSC faculty have developed programmatic interface with colleagues at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, including in the areas of hemophilia, sickle cell disease, bone marrow failure syndromes, and other diseases that span the transition between childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. As such, several UTHSC faculty have dual appointments with St Jude related to adolescent-young- adult programs, including focused clinic time on the St. Jude campus to facilitate the transition to adult practices. It is expected that the hemophilia program leader described by this posting would continue that rich partnership with St. Jude in similar manner for patient care, education, and research.

The applicant would participate in the education mission of UTHSC in areas related to hemophilia and general hematology, including the education of medical students, residents, and fellows. Depending on the interests of the applicant, the education role can be escalated to educational leadership with opportunities available at all levels of medical education.
