VA Palo Alto Health Care System invites Board Certified Thoracic, Cardiothoracic, and/or Cardiovascular Radiologists to join its full-time faculty. We will seek an appointment for the successful candidate at Stanford University School of Medicine as a Clinician Educator (Affiliated). This search is open rank, which will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate. Major criteria for academic appointment include excellence in clinical care and clinical teaching, as well as institutional service appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill.
Primary clinical duties for this position include interpretation of all thoracic and cardiovascular studies, including radiographs, thoracic CT and MR, cardiac CT and MR, and vascular CT and MR. In addition to interpreting thoracic and cardiovascular MRI examinations, candidates will be expected to be able to supervise and perform these examinations. If the candidate is not comfortable supervising and performing the MRI examinations, this can be taught on the job. The division participates in several multidisciplinary conferences with cardiology, pulmonology, oncology, cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, and vascular surgery. Protected research time, if desired, will be commensurate with funding support.
VA Palo Alto, one of the premier Veterans Affairs sites in the country, operates over 800 beds, including three nursing homes and a 100-bed homeless domiciliary serving over 67,000 enrolled Veterans in addition to many more referred for higher level care. The health system provides a comprehensive range of patient care services with state-of-the-art technology as well as education and research – maintaining one of the top three research programs in the VA. Cardiovascular studies are primarily done on Siemens FORCE CT and Siemens Skyra MRI scanners. Thoracic studies are done on both GE and Siemens CT and MRI scanners. The Radiology Department is set to open a new facility in late 2021 to include new GE 3T MRI, GE PET-MRI, and GE Revolution CT scanners. The new facility has recently commenced the design of a space for two new MRI scanners. A newly renovated IR suite also has a Canon Aquilion CT scanner available for diagnostic use if the candidate has interest. In addition, VA Palo Alto is also home to one of the most advanced educational simulation centers in the VA network.
The Radiology Service at VA Palo Alto is tightly affiliated with the Stanford Radiology residency program, a fully-accredited program with a total of 52 residents. The VA Radiology Service routinely garners many teaching accolades, and a genuine interest in education is a prerequisite.
