The Department of Urology at Stanford University seeks a board certified/board eligible urologist with a subspecialty training in Urologic Oncology with a MD or MD/PhD to join the department as an Assistant Professor or Associate Professor in the Medical Center Line or University Tenure Line in the Department of Urology at Stanford University School of Medicine. We are particularly interested in candidates who are fellowship-trained in urology oncology. The ideal candidate will have outstanding surgical skills in both robotic and open oncology surgery. In addition, a track record of academic productivity is required, as well as outstanding teaching skills. Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the applicant.
The major criteria for appointment for faculty in the Medical Center Line shall be excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, clinical teaching, scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill. The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching.
We expect the successful candidate to develop a clinical practice in both open and robotic surgery to serve both these areas. This position will be split between the Palo Alto Veterans Hospital and the Stanford Health Care Hospital. We expect the successful candidate to have identified serious research interests that are compatible with resources at Stanford and will compliment others research within the department and across the university.

About Stanford School of Medicine, Department of Urology
Our vision includes excellence in all three arms of academic urology:
1) Outstanding clinical care, with a personalized, patient–centered, and evidence-based approach. This includes streamlined patient access, multidisciplinary care, and the highest standards for quality and safety. We offer state-of-the art medical and surgical treatment in all aspects of adult and pediatric urology, including cancer, voiding dysfunction and incontinence, infections, stones, trauma, congenital anomalies, upper tract obstruction, and urinary tract reconstruction. We have expert surgeons in open, endoscopic and minimally invasive approaches to these conditions.
2) Excellence in basic science and translational research. We have investigators focused on the biology of prostate, kidney and bladder cancer, upper urinary tract obstruction, voiding dysfunction and inflammation. We work collaboratively with many other physicians and scientists in the Stanford community developing new and innovative urologic imaging and diagnostic techniques, trying to understand the basic biology of urologic cancers, and exploring new treatment algorithms for these conditions. We are rapidly expanding our clinical t...rials portfolio to offer the newest treatment options for patients with all stages of urologic cancers and other urologic conditions.
3) Outstanding education for the next generation of urologists. Stanford medical students and residents have the opportunity to train in a variety of clinical setting, and to experience the breadth of urologic medical and surgical care. Our residents have successfully competed for top fellowship positions in oncology, minimally invasive surgery and pediatrics, and a number have gone on to achieve leadership positions in academic urology around the country. We also provide ACGME accredited fellowship training in pediatric and female urology. We continuously work diligently to optimize the education experience for all of our residents, fellows and students.
I am looking forward to growing together with the Stanford Urology community along with our medical school and hospital partners as we move forward in this new endeavor.
