The Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) Department of Diagnostic Radiology is seeking a faculty member for our Cardiothoracic Imaging Section. Appointment will be at the level of Assistant, Associate or full Professor, depending upon qualifications.
As the only academic medical center in the state of Oregon, OHSU provides a full spectrum of care to a large and diverse population, including the Knight Cancer and Knight Cardiovascular Institutes. Accordingly, the department has state of the art imaging equipment and sees patients with a wide mix of complexity and pathology. Academic activities within the section are centered on the promotion of excellence in the evidence-based application, performance, and interpretation of Cardiothoracic Imaging.
The campus offers excellent opportunities for multidisciplinary research, with a history of innovative and collaborative studies. OHSU is home to numerous specialized research centers and institutes, including one of the first Clinical and Translational Sciences Award-funded programs in the country (the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute), the Advanced Imaging Research Center (dedicated to improving medical imaging), the Knight Cancer Institute, the Dotter interventional Institute, and the Knight Cardiovascular Institute. The Knight Cancer Institute is the only NCI-designated Cancer Center in Oregon.
Clinical responsibilities will include interpretation of all aspects of thoracic (CT/MR and radiographs) and cardiac imaging (CT and MR); as well as thoracic biopsies/aspirations. Familiarity with imaging of acquired and congenital heart diseases and imaging of minimally invasive techniques in the adult population is expected. Familiarity with cardiac imaging in the pediatric patient population would be desirable. Participation in numerous excellent weekly interdisciplinary conferences is expected. Educational responsibilities will include teaching at all levels commensurate with a large academic center, including medical student, resident and fellow training.
Candidates currently undertaking fellowship training in Cardiothoracic Imaging are encouraged to apply.
