Responsibilities include clinical care, teaching, and participation in clinical or clinical-translational research.

We have active clinical and laboratory research programs in oncology, neuro-oncology, survivorship, hemophilia, and phase I/phase II investigational drug development. CCBD is an active member of COG, POETIC, TACL, Histiocyte Society and NACHO, offering consortia trials, phase I and II industry-sponsored studies and investigator-initiated trials. Our ACGME approved fellowship program in pediatric hematology/oncology is approved for 3 fellows/year. We also offer a one-year specialty fellowship in Bone Marrow Transplant. The Neuro-Oncology Section sees approximately 90 new patients annually. Our physicians work closely with neuro-surgeons in the Barrow Neurological Institute and radiation oncologists at Mayo Clinic Arizona. Our Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation department provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary in and outpatient care for patients suffering from brain tumor-related sequelae. We have a dedicated pediatric neuropathologist with expertise in molecular methods. We collaborate on research initiatives with investigators at the University of Arizona and TGen. We host a weekly multidisciplinary tumor board focused on management of children with newly diagnosed and relapsed CNS tumors.

The staff physician shall provide patient care services and will support the PCH mission of providing hope, healing and the best health care for children and their families.
