The University of New Mexico (UNM) School of Medicine (SOM) Department of Surgery, Division of Surgical Oncology is seeking a full-time academic gastrointestinal / abdominal Surgical Oncologist.

The UNM Division of Surgical Oncology currently consists of fellowship-trained surgical oncologists, breast surgeons, and colorectal surgeons who provide multidisciplinary care of patients with a full spectrum of malignancies.  Surgeons in our group are actively engaged in cancer clinical trials and undergraduate as well as graduate medical education, including fellows in Complex General Surgical Oncology. The UNM Department of Surgery boasts a robust infrastructure of services and resources to help achieve academic goals, and leadership opportunities are available.

UNM serves a large, medically complex population and is a consultative resource for the State of New Mexico and the Four Corners region of the Southwest. Outpatient oncology services are provided through the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center (UNMCCC), the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Cancer Center in a 500-mile radius.  UNMCCC is one of only 51 cancer centers in the nation to be designated by the NCI as a comprehensive cancer center, the highest federal designation and rating for cancer centers. UNMCCC’s 125 board-certified oncology specialty physicians provide comprehensive cancer care in every specialty, adult and pediatric hematologists/medical oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, and radiation oncologists. They, along with more than 500 other cancer healthcare professionals (nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, navigators, psychologists and social workers), provided cancer care for nearly 60 percent of the adults and children in New Mexico affected by cancer. The 130 cancer research scientists affiliated with the UNMCCC were awarded almost $60 million in federal and private grants and contracts for cancer research projects and published 301 high quality publications.

The UNM Health Science Center (HSC) is the largest academic health complex in the state of New Mexico. Located on the University of New Mexico campus in beautiful Albuquerque, NM, the HSC combines its four mission areas - educations, research, patient care and community outreach - to provide New Mexicans with the highest level of health care.
