Job Posting: Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinical Director (Jimma, Ethiopia) — Please forward

The Aslan Project is seeking a Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinical Director for a Program in Jimma, Ethiopia.

The posting can be found here.

Inspired by a young cancer patient from Ethiopia, Temesgen Gamacho, The Aslan Project was founded by a group of doctors, nurses, and family members of children with cancer who believe passionately that no matter where they are born, all children deserve a chance at surviving cancer. Their work is driven by the core belief that sustainable improvements in pediatric and adolescent cancer care in developing countries are possible by establishing and empowering a broad network of local stakeholders to become champions of change.

Together with the Ethiopian partnership, The Aslan Project is building the first comprehensive national program for children with cancer and blood diseases using a step-wise approach with education of the health care providers at the core of the initiative.  Accordingly, they have created a fellowship program in pediatric hematology and oncology at TASH to provide the necessary training while assisting in the progressive creation of all the clinical programs that are necessary for the comprehensive care of young cancer patients.  A Clinical Director is sought to ensure that the development and implementation of the pediatric hematology/oncology program and the delivery of medical services through that program meet the highest standards of clinical, supportive, and palliative care.
