The Division of Surgery at Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center is seeking a fellowship-trained, patient-focused, academically-oriented, head and neck cancer surgeon with microvascular flap reconstruction skills to join the distinguished and rapidly-growing team comprising our head and neck surgical oncology program.

Baptist MD Anderson brings an unprecedented level of oncology care to Northeast Florida and provides physicians an appealing blend of community focused patient care and the benefit of an academic-oriented model. Baptist Health is proud to be the regions’ most preferred healthcare provider, one of only seven health systems in the United States chosen to replicate MD Anderson Cancer Center’s multidisciplinary and proven model of care, and the Southeast patient care hub for MD Anderson Cancer Network®, a program of MD Anderson.

The Baptist MD Anderson Head and Neck Cancer Program features a uniquely specialized, multidisciplinary team centered on a collaborative approach that brings together the expertise of surgery, radiology, medical and radiation oncology, pathology, dentistry, speech pathology, psychology and dedicated patient care navigators. Our program also features rehabilitation, genetic testing and counseling and survivorship programs and support.  Baptist MD Anderson will soon open a brand-new, 330,000 square foot, patient centered, state-of-the art facility dedicated to the full spectrum of oncology care.

The ideal candidate will be board-certified or board-eligible, demonstrate a commitment to multidisciplinary oncology care, have a record of clinical and academic accomplishment, possess the skills and experience necessary to establish and maintain an active clinical practice and develop areas of productive scholarship sufficient to warrant appointment as an Adjunct Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor of Surgery at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

Northeast Florida offers world-renowned quality of life and is thriving with miles of beaches and waterways, professional sports teams, a strong economy, championship golf courses, exceptionally diverse cultural experiences and wildly abundant natural resources. The area serves as home to top-ranked schools and some of the best cost of living and recreation that the Sunshine State has to offer. Immediately within reach are world famous destinations, attractions, theme parks and entertainment for families of all ages. Recently ranked by Forbes Magazine as one of the top two most desirable cities for relocation in the United States, Jacksonville offers the ideal setting to call home.

Baptist MD Anderson is an equal opportunity employer who recognizes the value which evolves from a diverse faculty. 

Interested candidates should submit their CV and a letter describing their clinical and academic interests to:
