Great Opportunity for Board Eligible or Recently Boarded Radiologist

We have a great opportunity for an ACVR or ECVDI board eligible or board certified radiologist. This 12 month position (longer if so desired) is designed to provide a rich academic environment whereby the successful candidate has an opportunity to:

1) enhance your interpretive and clinical consultation skills in preparation for the ACVR or ECVDI certification exam and/or before moving into an academic faculty position or clinical practice

2) gain additional clinical expertise in an imaging area of interest

3) refine your approach to instruction of veterinary students and house officers

During this appointment you will participate in the hospital as an attending radiologist and the position should be viewed as similar to the 4th year of a radiology residency. This level of participation is designed to build confidence in image interpretation and consultation by allowing you to have primary responsibility for decision making, but with senior radiology faculty available for consultation. In addition, you will participate in weekly known case conference, either administering the practice oral examination or participating as an examinee, depending on your preference.

Diagnostic imaging in the Veterinary Health Complex is extremely well equipped with 4 Canon digital radiographic systems (2 small animal, 2 equine), a digital RF room, a biplane cath lab, 2 GE Logic e9 ultrasound machines for small animal imaging, a Mylab 70 XVG for equine orthopedics and assorted portable equine ultrasound machines, an equine/small animal nuclear medicine suite using Mirage software, 2 Siemens CT machines,  (16 slice for equine and 64 slice for small animal),  and access to a fully appointed onsite Siemens 1.5 T MR small animal and equine suite owned by AnimalScan LLC.  A fully integrated web based Radiology Information System (Empiric Systems/Fuji) and PACS (Amicas) allows for easy report generation and image distribution throughout the Teaching Hospital.  The RIS and PACS are readily accessible from offsite and via iOS devices. The fully integrated RIS and PACS is an invaluable online educational resource with over 150,000 studies and associated reports.

There are 3 other full-time radiologists, 4 radiology residents and 11 technologists and support staff.  Radiology is a congenial and team-oriented group and the Veterinary Health Complex is a wonderful workplace with enthusiastic students, technologists and other faculty specialists who work together to provide excellent veterinary medical care and to advance the knowledge base.

Excellent opportunities exist for independent or collaborative investigational activities and for innovations in teaching if so desired.  Strong ties exist between the College and area medical schools. The NC State Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research (CCMTR) is located on the Veterinary Health Complex campus and provides opportunities for participation in collaborative and translational research projects. These attributes should be of particular interest to candidates who may want to pursue a career in academia.
