Description:  The Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, University of Utah, is seeking a CAQ certified, fellowship trained Interventional Radiologist to lead its rapidly expanding Interventional Radiology (IR) section.  IR faculty members are expected to develop and lead specific clinical service lines, participate in an IR call pool, initiate or participate in research projects, and actively engage in teaching of residents and fellows.  In addition to routine interventional radiology procedures, the section offers robust programs in interventional oncology and complex transplant and hepatobiliary intervention.  The interventional radiology faculty currently consists of seven faculty members and groups of physician assistants, nurse practitioners, technologists, and nurses.  There are accredited residency (DR-IR) and IR fellowship programs.  The Department and Huntsman Cancer Institute strongly support research opportunities and developments.

Qualifications:  The candidate should be IR fellowship trained and CAQ certified.  The ideal candidate would have experience in all aspects of IR operations.  Outstanding clinical and interpersonal skills are a prerequisite.  Evidence of prior academic work is strongly desired.  It is expected that this individual will contribute to and flourish a collegial environment that will promote the growth of the section in alignment with department goals.  The academic appointment will be at a rank commensurate with training and experience.

Facilities and Institution:  The section provides clinical services at the University Hospital, VA medical center and the Huntsman Cancer Hospital, an NCI-designated premier cancer center. The University Hospital draws patients from the 5 touching states of Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Wyoming.  Resources include a recently opened 2-floor IR suite in the main hospital as well as a new room at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital and a second room that has been updated, both within a completely redesigned clinical platform. Further expansion of IR resources at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital is currently planned.  Imaging resources outside of IR include MR, dual-energy CT, and PET-CT, available for clinical work and research.  The Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research (UCAIR) in the Department offers world-class research opportunities in advanced medical imaging and interventional device developments such as MR-guided Focused Ultrasound.  Research C-arm for pre-clinical studies is also available for interventional radiology research. The University of Utah Health Sciences offer various leadership programs and training opportunities for faculty members.  A national leader in quality care, the University of Utah Hospital and Clinics were ranked #1 in Quality, Safety, and Accountability among all academic medical centers and consistently ranked in the top 10 over 10 years in a row.
