Function/Duties of Position

The Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology has an exciting and rare opportunity to join our well-established team as the Fellowship & Division Administrative Coordinator.  You will work primarily from home, but will come to campus at least a few times per month, depending on the needs of the division and fellowship program.  In this role you will put your critical thinking skills to use and establish yourself as the person who “gets the job done”. Faculty and Fellows will rely on you to keep their daily work lives on track and to provide real time problem-solving and facilitation that allow them to do what they do best: care for the children and families who have put their health in our team’s hands. You will work alongside (virtually) an amazing group of colleagues and subject matter experts across the Department of Pediatrics who will be there for you when you have questions, need a quick check-in, or simply want to run a new idea by folks who understand the work you do.  


This job is split between two distinct roles: Division Administrative Coordinator (AC) and Fellowship Program Coordinator (PC). 


The Division Administrative Coordinator performs a variety of administrative and technical functions that support the objectives of the Division in the areas of clinical care, advocacy, education, and research.  The AC serves as the main point of contact for both internal and external customers of the Division.  The Division is comprised of 16-20 MDs, 10-12 APPs, 5-7 Fellows, another Administrative Coordinator, and a Program Director.


The Fellowship Program Coordinator manages the operational administration of the Pediatric Hematology-Oncology fellowship program, including recruitment, onboarding, trainee assessment, internal and external communications, and program evaluation. The PC will continually monitor and coordinate a wide range of programmatic functions, including: developing program policies and procedures; reviewing program operations and workflows for compliance; recommending process improvements; and communicating with faculty, fellows, and staff about program policies and procedures. The position also requires a high degree of initiative, strong attention to detail, independent judgment, and collaborative skills.
