UMass Memorial Medical Center, the clinical partner of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, is seeking ABR certified radiologist with fellowship training in breast imaging. The Department of Radiology, [www.umassmed.edu/radiology], comprised of 65 faculty, 20 residents, 9 fellows and 15 PhD's, performs approximately 750,000 imaging studies per year across multiple sites in central Massachusetts. The department's IT platform is fully integrated with a new AGFA PACS and enterprise-wide EPIC EMR.
Join a busy existing group of 10 breast imagers, and one breast imaging fellow, in a NAPBC approved Comprehensive Breast Center, and ACR designated centers of excellence (academic and community sites). We currently perform diagnostic studies and breast intervention procedures at 4 different sites in central MA. The breast imaging section currently provides clinical services to the academic facility of the UMass Medical School, two community hospitals at Marlborough and Leominster and other outreach satellite locations. There are plans to expand our services to other community sites. Currently 45,000 mammograms, 5,000 dedicated breast ultrasounds, 800 breast MRIs and 4,000 interventional procedures are performed annually. The environment is completely digital and includes 3T and 1.5T MRI suites, seven tomosynthesis units, eight non tomosynthesis units (all Hologic and plans to upgrade some of these units), six ultrasound suites (Philips IU 22, all these units are being updated to EPIQ Elite Diagnostic Ultrasound Systemin a phased manner), including an ABUS suite (GE Invenia 2.0), and an upright Affirm unit for 3D biopsies and two prone LORADS tables. Our needle localizations at the main university campus are mostly wire free (Savi-Scout).
Candidates must be able to perform the full range of breast imaging and interventions. Work locations will be split primarily between UMass Memorial Medical Center, and the community hospitals. There are numerous research, clinical and resident/fellow teaching opportunities, including participation in NIH funded (R01) research. UMass is also a participating site for the TMIST trial.
UMass Memorial Health is the largest healthcare system in Central Massachusetts. As the clinical partner of UMass Medical School, you will have access to the latest technology, research and clinical trials. As the dominant integrated health care system in central Massachusetts, there is extensive opportunity to participate in population-based health management research and systems development.
Centrally located, Worcester is just miles from Boston, Providence, and Cape Cod with a short ride to the scenic Berkshire Mountains. The diverse city of Worcester has nine colleges and universities including the University of Massachusetts Medical School, that overlooks the beautiful panoramic views of Lake Quinsigamond. As the second largest city in New England, it has powered a rise of booming technology, research, manufacturing and healthcare industries. Although housing costs in and around Worcester are much more affordable compared to the immediate metro-Boston areas, the drive from Worcester to downtown Boston is less than 45 minutes on nights and weekend. Alternatively, many faculty live half way between Boston and Worcester and benefit from a traffic free reverse commute.
