The Department of Radiology at the University of Washington is recruiting an Acting Instructor to join an academic group comprised of 15 neuroradiology faculty and nine fellows for the 2022-2023 academic year starting July 1, 2022. Responsibilities include clinical coverage of the diagnostic neuroradiology service, instruction of medical students, residents and fellows, and pursuit of academic interests. This is a one-year “second-year fellow” position, which follows completion of a one-year diagnostic neuroradiology fellowship and is intended as a bridge to an academic career. An acting instructor functions on the clinical service as an attending and has an average of one day/week off the clinical schedule protected as research/academic time. Salary is approximately 50% more than that of a first-year fellow.
The neuroradiology section provides clinical coverage and teaching at four medical centers (University of Washington Medical Center – Montlake, University of Washington Medical Center – Northwest, Harborview, and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance), all with state-of-the-art equipment, including a total of eight 3 Tesla and five 1.5 Tesla MRI scanners, 10 CT scanners, two dedicated neuro-interventional angio suites, five PET-CT scanners and a soon to be installed PET-MRI scanner. The department also has two 3T MRI scanners dedicated for research.
Candidates for this position must hold an MD or equivalent. Candidates should possess, or be eligible for, full medical licensure in Washington State. Candidates must have completed a one-year neuroradiology fellowship. Candidates will be expected to perform clinical work in all aspects of diagnostic neuroradiology including fluoroscopic procedures and CT-guided biopsies, but not cerebral angiography. H1B visa sponsorship is available for graduates of foreign (non-US) medical schools. These candidates must show successful completion of all three steps of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
