The Department of Radiology at The Ohio State University is seeking a Division Chief for Interventional Radiology (IR) who is an experienced interventionalist and an inspiring and innovative leader. The Division Chief oversees clinical staff, including physicians, fellows, and residents, in providing IR services throughout The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC). They will contribute to the strategic growth of the clinical, educational, and research missions of the Department, including the development of staffing models to meet the needs of each domain. OSUWMC is entering an exciting phase of growth of its ambulatory and inpatient services, creating excellent opportunities to build upon and substantially expand our Interventional Radiology services. Notably, the organization’s strategic plan includes $4 billion in facilities expansion and programmatic development over the next four years.
Importantly, OSUWMC includes the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, a recently opened state-of-the-art NCI-designated cancer-care facility, representing the third largest cancer hospital in the United States. OSUWMC cancer care is supported by a very active IR-based Interventional Oncology (IO) program functioning within a highly collegial and progressive multi-disciplinary work group environment and offering a full range of IO procedures (e.g., radioembolization, chemoembolization, percutaneous ablations) along with involvement in multiple ongoing trials.
The Division’s IR Radiologists practice within multiple IR procedure rooms across the OSU University Hospital, James Cancer Hospital, and Ohio State East Hospital, and are supported by dedicated APPs, RNs, and RTs. In addition, the Division and Department are home to highly competitive Interventional Radiology and Diagnostic Radiology programs – IR faculty work side-by-side with residents in both programs, contributing substantially to the training of future radiologists locally and across the country.
