The Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology is the largest pediatric comprehensive cancer center in Europe. Our ultimate goal is to cure every child with cancer, with optimal quality of life.

The hemato-oncology program at the Princess Máxima Center is seeking an enthusiastic Pediatric Hemato-Oncologist with a dedicated interest in hemato-oncology to join our well-established and innovative national practice.  

Our hemato-oncology program sees over 250 newly diagnosed patients per year. All patients are discussed in 2 tumorboards, one focused on lymphoma and histiocytosis  patients (including pathology and imaging) and one focused on leukemias (including advance molecular diagnostics). Clinical research activities are coordinated via M4C (M4C HCT and immunotherapy, M4C-ALL, M4C Lymphoma research meeting, M4C for Stem Cell Disorders and Myeloid Malignancies, M4C AML research meeting).

  • Contribute to the training of other healthcare professionals;
  • Engage with continuous professional development.
