The Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at St. Jude is one the largest sickle cell
disease programs in the country. This program treats approximately 900 children with
sickle cell disease each year.
The St. Jude- Methodist Sickle Cell Disease Transition clinic, an integral part of the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, ensures the appropriate transition of adolescents to adult health care for ongoing management of this complex chronic disease. Our partnerships with Methodist University Hospital and the University of Tennessee also connects our faculty and fellows to an adult sickle cell population of approximately 400 adults. The clinic serves as a national model for other programs aiming to improve outcomes of this disease.
Eligible applicants will have completed training in pediatric hematology/oncology, adult hematology/oncology, adult hematology, internal medicine, family medicine or medicine/pediatrics.
Interested candidates should send a copy of their CV, a personal statement, and
three letters of recommendation to the program directors.
