Job Description

Job description:
City of Hope, an innovative biomedical research, treatment and educational institution, is dedicated to the prevention and cure of cancer and other life-threatening diseases, guided by a compassionate patient-centered philosophy, and supported by a national foundation of humanitarian philanthropy.

We have an immediate opening for our South Pasadena Cancer Clinic, with state of the art facilities, to support Dr. Christina Yeon, in her Oncology Practice.

The South Pasadena Cancer Center is among the first in Los Angeles to offer RapidArc, a new advanced non-surgical treatment that destroys tumors. Using computerized image-guided technology, RapidArc conforms to the tumor, sparing healthy tissue and organs from radiation. In addition to its precision, RapidArc is up to 8 times faster than other advanced radiation therapies. Many treatments are as short as just a few minutes - giving patients more time to do the things they enjoy most.

In addition, with expertise in minimally invasive and robotic surgery, South Pasadena Cancer Center surgeons provide patients with the latest treatment options that reduce recovery time and improve outcomes. Collaborating to discover, develop and implement innovative strategies for the prevention and treatment of cancer, our physicians bring nationally recognized expertise in cancer care and research to the local community.
