The University of Missouri is recruiting for an experienced, ABR certified and fellowship trained MSK radiologist to lead our MSK section, which currently has 3 fellowship-trained MSK radiologists. The position is for Associate or Professor rank, tenure or non-tenure tracks. The MSK service is responsible for diagnostic MRI, CT, US, and radiographs, and imaging-guided MSK and spine procedures. The section chief will have the opportunity to assist in the growth of the radiologic services, education of medical students, residents and fellows, as well as to participate in research and scholarly activities.
The MSK radiology service is based in the Missouri Orthopedic Institute (MOI), central Missouri’s largest freestanding orthopedic center. MOI has just completed phase 1 of a $40 million expansion, and is well started on phase 2. The orthopedic department is growing rapidly, creating a need for expansion of the MSK radiology section. MSK faculty work closely with an academic and highly subspecialized orthopedic department as well as other departments in the university and the community. There are many opportunities and resources for collaborative research. MU is a level 1 Trauma center serving a wide catchment area in central Missouri. The available equipment is state-of-the-art and include two 3T Siemens scanners, three 1.5T Siemens magnets, and a GE 1.5T magnet. New GE 1.5 and 3T MR scanners, as well as new GE CT scanner, EOS and CT bone density are being installed at the MOI within the coming year. Approximately 250,000 exams are performed each year serving the University Hospital & Clinics, Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, and Women’s and Children’s Hospital and an imaging center.
The University of Missouri has a rich tradition in strong clinical and educational programs. Under the direction of the chair, Talissa Altes, the Department of Radiology is engaging in an expansion of clinical, educational and research opportunities for faculty and trainees.
MU is one of the few institutions in the country with colleges of medicine, veterinary medicine, agriculture, engineering, nursing and health professions on one campus.
