University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor, Michigan
Job Summary: The Department of Radiology is recruiting a fellowship-trained Neurointerventional Radiologist (NIR) with high integrity and a strong commitment to professionalism to join our team at either the Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor level.
Neurointerventional Radiology (NIR) has been an established specialty at Michigan Medicine for the past 25 years. Our growing and diverse practice has the breadth, depth and scale for faculty at any career stage and with general or specialized interests anywhere along the spectrum from clinician-educator to clinician-scientist. We emphasize mentorship, career and leadership development.
NIR utilizes two dedicated biplane angiosuites for adults and a shared biplane angiosuite in the Mott Children’s hospital and takes care of approximately 1000 patients with neurovascular disease in the adult & pediatric population. The specialty has seen a growth of 6% in FY19 mainly related to an increase in number of ischemic stroke thrombectomies. The Neurointerventional radiology (NIR) team is based in the Neuroradiology Division, and is composed of two radiologists and two neurosurgeons. Our training, in a typical year, includes a Neurointerventional radiology (NIR) fellow from Radiology and a Neuro-endovascular Surgery (NES) fellow from Neurosurgery. The NIR faculty also have responsibilities for some programmed Neuro-diagnostic MR & CT reading.
The Radiology Department has the latest hardware and software capabilities for all aspects of anatomic, physiologic and metabolic imaging. We operate 14 MR scanners, including an intraoperative unit, 3T, 1.5T and open 1T units, 18 CT scanners including among them GE Revolution CT, HD 750 scanners, Siemens Force, a portable scanner for the neuro ICU, and a dental scanner. Our 3 neuroangiographic suites include a CT biplane angiographic unit, a biplane angiographic unit and a multipurpose single plane angiographic unit, plus a biplane angiosuite in the CS Mott children’s hospital.
Responsibilities include teaching a spectrum of learners (medical students, residents, fellows and ourselves too), and clinical, translational and/or basic research. We have many ongoing research programs within the Department, including close collaboration with our own Basic Sciences Division, and with colleagues across Michigan Medicine and the University of Michigan campus. The University of Michigan Medical School has the largest group of health services researchers in the United States at our Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation, and an excellent Faculty Development Program.
NIR faculty enjoy close relationships with many disciplines, including Neurology, Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology, Emergency Medicine, and Radiation Oncology. These collaborations provide a stimulating collegial atmosphere with more than 20 interdisciplinary conferences each week, including teaching conferences, tumor boards and clinical working conferences. We strive to be the “leaders and best” in pursuit of excellence in clinical care, research and education.
Required Qualifications: M.D. or equivalent, ABR-certified, has passed the core examination and on track to take the certifying examination within 15 months of completing residency, with ACGME-accredited fellowship training in neuroradiology, 2 years of Neurointerventional Radiology (NIR) training, and the ability to obtain a medical license in the State of Michigan. Evidence of clinical competence and competence in teaching is expected.
