Breast Imaging Faculty: The Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) Department of Diagnostic Radiology is seeking a well-trained, subspecialized Breast Imaging radiologist to join our Women’s Imaging team. We are dedicated to outstanding patient care, resident and fellow teaching, and academic excellence. This position is located in Portland, Oregon.
Clinical responsibilities will include all aspects of breast imaging and interventions, including mammography, ultrasound, MRI, biopsies, pre-surgical localizations, and ductograms. Dedicated breast imagers do not take call. Conference coverage includes a weekly Multidisciplinary Comprehensive Breast Care Conference (duties shared by breast faculty). The Women’s Imaging Center is part of an integrated clinical care model located in the new Knight Oncology building at the South Waterfront, and provides services for patients from the OHSU hospital and Clinics as well as the VA.
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 Institute. 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 Women’s 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, the Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine (dedicated to elucidating the structural and mechanical properties of cells and tissues), and the Oregon National Primate Research Center. The Knight Cancer Institute is the only NCI-designated Cancer Center in Oregon.
Educational responsibilities will include teaching at all levels commensurate with a large academic center, including medical student, resident, and fellow training. Candidates must be ABR board certifying eligible after passing the ABR Core Exam and successful completion of an ACGME-accredited residency and must be eligible to practice medicine in the state of Oregon. International Medical Graduates are eligible for the position provided they have a valid ECFMG certificate, have completed an ACGME-accredited residency and ABR Core Exam, or are otherwise board-eligible through the ABR IMG Alternate Pathway program.
Current Fellows, Clinical Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor level candidates with fellowship training and/or faculty experience in Women’s Imaging are encouraged to apply. Preference will be made to those applicants with academic interest and experience. OHSU is committed to diversity, and applications from under-represented minorities and women are encouraged to apply.
