The Division of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) is seeking a full time Nuclear Medicine physician or Nuclear Radiologist, at either the Assistant or Associate professor level, to fulfill a variety of roles. The division has state of the art imaging equipment and sees both adult and pediatric patients with a mixture of complexity from within OHSU, the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, as well as more widely throughout Oregon and adjacent states. Clinical responsibilities include overseeing the daily activities of the division which encompasses a broad imaging case load generated by one gamma camera, five SPECT/CTs, two digital PET/CTs, and one PET/MR (fall 2021). A variety of radiopharmaceutical therapies are also done, with particularly active neuroendocrine tumor and prostate cancer therapy programs. Participation in various multidisciplinary tumor boards is expected. Furthermore, the division is in a period of active growth highlighted by a new clinic to open next year including a dedicated radionuclide therapy suite. Active involvement of the educational activities of the department is expected, including the Radiology as well as Nuclear Medicine residency/fellowship programs.
While not required, an interest and involvement in research is valued given the current trajectory of the field in general and especially at OHSU. This may involve a variety of research types including investigator-initiated studies, industry-sponsored clinical trials, or retrospective projects for both radionuclide imaging and therapy. The Center for Radiochemistry Research (CRR) is a state-of-art cyclotron facility which is available for collaboration to develop radionuclides for basic science, small and large animal experiments, or human clinical trials. Trainees of many levels and a departmental research team is also available for support.
The OHSU campus offers excellent opportunities for multidisciplinary research, with a history of innovative and collaborative studies. 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 an active transplant program and the Knight Cancer Institute. 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, fellow and postgraduate training.
Candidates must be ABNM or ABR board certifying eligible after passing the ABNM Certification Exam or ABR Core Exam and successful completion of an ACGME-accredited residency. 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.
Candidates at all levels of practice including those currently undertaking Nuclear Medicine Residency or Fellowship training are encouraged to apply. OHSU is committed to diversity, and applications from under-represented minorities and women are also encouraged to apply.
