The Topeka, Kansas VA Hospital is currently seeking a full-time board certified/board eligible physician to join our Oncology Department. You will enjoy a busy, heavy clinical practice, and be board certified in Hematology Oncology.
The Topeka VA Hospital offers a rare opportunity for you to join a premier hematology/oncology team. You will work with a private staff (not shared) of highly experienced and collaborative, multi-certified Registered Oncology Nurses. All are experts at navigating patients through the complexities of multidisciplinary cancer care. This center of excellence has its own dedicated heme/onc pharmacist, social worker, palliative care team, and MSA. In-hospital specialists include interventional and diagnostic radiology/nuclear medicine, pathology, urology, ENT, and much more. Excellent VA and private radiation oncology are seamlessly available. Our onsite, state-of-the-art PET/CT scanner will come online this fall. Patients from other VA facilities, and from private practice, come to our heme/onc unit due to our reputation for compassionate quality of care and access to medications and modalities not available elsewhere. Be part of a multisite weekly Teletumor Conference to confer with specialists at other regional centers of excellence (including KUMC). You will have cross-coverage by our longtime oncologist, who is transitioning to retirement. We are looking for the right leader to build on our outstanding legacy. Become a part of a team providing compassionate care to Veterans.
Within the land of the prairie, there lies a city teeming with pivotal points of history, unparalleled novelties and attractions, and natural beauty that pairs perfectly with Kansas’ notably expansive horizon.

Not only a Capital City that leads in politics and business, Topeka shines for its diversity of thought and experience – as well as the crowd it draws.
When venturing around Topeka, you will quickly recognize the warm, inviting nature of our community. We look forward to dazzling you with new adventures, good food and great times to ensure we are always on your short list for future getaways.
