The Division’s clinical practice involves all aspects of classical pediatric hematology and diagnostic oncology. They have one of the largest cohort of patients with sickle cell anemia in Brooklyn, NY. Community outreach and collaboration with local and national organizations are important facets of the program. They provide state of the art, evidenced based care in the outpatient and inpatient settings including the infusion center.  We have a transition of care program for our patients living with sickle cell anemia and a transition coordinator. Our transition program is supported by a NY State Grant.

The Division at NYP Brooklyn Methodist Hospital works in close collaboration with the Pediatric Hematology Oncology Division at Weill Cornell in areas of clinical care, research, and education.

We have the first of its kind dedicated patient family advisory council for patients living with sickle cell disease and we work closely with The Dalio Center for Health Justice and our colleagues across the network developing initiatives that directly serve our sickle cell patients.

Faculty duties include but are not limited to the provision of clinical care, on-call/consultative services in Brooklyn at NYP Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, resident and medical student teaching, mentorship, research, and participation in clinical trials.  We are looking for someone at the assistant or associate professor level. The primary faculty appointment will be at Weill Cornell Medical College. Faculty will have access to educational and professional development opportunities at both campuses. This is primarily a clinical position but candidates with research interests in sickle cell disease are encouraged to apply. We have a large population of patients with sickle cell at both WCM and BMH who can enroll in clinical trials.
