Please use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox when accessing Candidate Home. By joining the American Red Cross you will touch millions of lives every year and experience the greatness of the human spirit at its best. Are you ready to be part of the world's largest humanitarian network? Job Description: Our blood donors are ordinary people – high school students, factory and office workers, business executives, parents and grandparents, and people from every walk of life. But they share common motivations – a generous spirit, a desire to give back to their community and to help others.  If these are values that are important in your job search, we encourage you to apply for a Medical Director position at the American Red Cross today to learn more. The American Red Cross is seeking a part-time Medical Director in either the Chicago or Peoria, IL locations of its IL Blood Region. The employee will need to share regional daytime coverage  as well as on-call coverage  for overnights, weekends and holidays with other ARC Physicians. What do the best Red Cross physicians do differently than your typical Transfusion Medicine physician? Our physicians put themselves out there for internal talks and conferences, to meet with hospital clients and to meet with industry leaders. The Red Cross firmly believes in a performance-driven environment. Even new Medical Director teammates have substantial opportunity to grow professionally & increase their scope of responsibility within the American Red Cross physician group.   What does a Red Cross Medical Director need to do to be successful? Be a team player – in this role you will be partnering closely with the members of your Region. Additionally, you’ll be joining a network of physicians throughout a larger geographic division and as well as a national network of 30+ Transfusion Medicine physicians. Last but certainly not least – you’ll be working closely with C-level Hospital clients and Transfusion Service Medical Directors in your geographic region.  Outstanding public speaking/presentation skills and interpersonal skills are essential to success in this role – we’re looking for someone that can do the “paperwork” that is part of any Medical Director job but also someone that is truly motivated & energized by working with people.   What needs to be done first? Learn the organization – as the largest single provider of blood products, we have nationally standardized SOP’s and best practices. Our size is a significant differentiator from comparable local/regional hospital positions – this is both a strength and a challenge. Here at the Red Cross, you will be joining a large organization that runs over 200,000 blood drives per year and supplies approximately 2,700 hospitals. There are a lot of blood banks – what makes the Red Cross different? We’re really good at what we do. Our blood program has been in place for nearly 75 years. Additionally, our size and long experience in the field means that we do more than collect blood – in this role you would be part of an organization with the largest IRL network in the country, provides both Therapeutic Apheresis and Stem Cell collection & offers well-received CME opportunities to our hospital partners.
