The Trauma and Emergency Radiology Section serves patients at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and University of Maryland Medical Center Emergency Department. Specializing in diagnostic imaging for patients experiencing acute traumatic and non-traumatic medical emergencies, including severe multi-system trauma, radiologists work with both medical and surgical specialists to provide comprehensive patient evaluation.

The mission of the Trauma and Emergency Radiology Section is to provide rapid, comprehensive and expert clinical radiology service to patients, while also advancing the use of non-invasive imaging in Trauma care through research and education. In addition to the Shock Trauma Center, the section serves the patients of the University of Maryland Medical Center's Adult Emergency Department.

Description

The Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine seeks a full-time, faculty radiologist to be a member of the expanding Emergency Radiology section of its Division of Emergency and Trauma Imaging (ETI).

This position is for an American Board of Radiology board certified or board eligible radiologist. The successful candidate will preferably be either Emergency Radiology fellowship trained in or both strongly interested in and experienced with the practice of contemporary Emergency Radiology. However, strong candidates with fellowship training in other areas, particularly Neuroradiology and Body Imaging, will be considered. Candidates should be comfortable with the broad scope of emergency and acute care imaging, including radiograph, CT/CTA, MRI/MRA, and US (no nuclear medicine, fluoroscopy, or interventional procedures).

Clinical responsibilities will include coverage of the academic Emergency Department of the University of Maryland Medical Center-Downtown Campus, as well as emergency studies originating in the Department of Radiology's expanding Community Radiology enterprise, which includes four community-based acute care hospitals and a free-standing emergency care center. Though coverage of the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center will primarily be provided by the subsection of Trauma Radiology, the candidate should be comfortable with basic trauma imaging. The candidate will be expected to provide on-site coverage at the UMMC-Downtown campus, which will include resident supervision, while assisting with remote coverage of other sites. Given the nexus of responsibilities, the Emergency Radiology section works closely with the expanding Community Radiology section, potentially leading to opportunities to either work on-site at one of the practice's other affiliated centers or work remotely from home.

Qualifications :

The ETI and Community Radiology divisions have strong working relationships with Emergency Medicine Departments at its affiliates, as well as Trauma Surgery and Acute Care Surgery at the UMMC-Downtown Campus, providing for a collegial work environment and opportunities for both clinical and academic collaboration.

The candidate will be expected to provide on-site resident and fellow supervision during clinical coverage, as well as participate in the didactic lecture series for the Radiology residency. While administrative and academic activities are strongly encouraged and supported, they are not mandatory for this position. The work schedule will have a strong focus on sustainability and a favorable work/life balance.

The expected start date is July 2020 for graduating fellows, though earlier start dates for other candidates will be viewed favorably.

We proudly offer competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits. Faculty rank is commensurate with candidate's qualifications and experience. Expected rank is Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) or higher. However, rank and corresponding salary are dependent on the candidate's qualifications and experience.
