The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at Yale University School of Medicine is seeking board eligible/certified radiologists with expertise and interest in emergency/trauma imaging for a full-time faculty appointment on the Academic Clinician Track. Academic rank at Yale School of Medicine will be commensurate with experience, training, and achievements.
The Emergency/Trauma section is a multispecialty group whose practice includes several hospitals (with over 2000 inpatient beds across two major community hospitals on 4 campuses), including a level one trauma center, as well as several urgent care and freestanding ER sites, in addition to partial coverage of the VA West Haven Medical Center Emergency Room.
This program was the first in the nation to provide true contemporaneous final 24 X 7 imaging interpretations for our Emergency/Trauma patients. We cover overnight inpatient examinations as well. Our group has a track record of collaborative research, flexibility in scheduling shifts, and a commitment to the best clinical care.
While up to half the sessions will be performed in New Haven, at least half of all dates of coverage will be assigned to Bridgeport Hospital, an affiliate of Yale-New Haven Health, located in vibrant Fairfield County, Connecticut, just outside the New York metropolitan area. This 500-bed hospital has the region’s only burns unit, is a Level II trauma center and includes adult/neonatal ICUs. Bridgeport Hospital’s delivery network consists of this acute care teaching hospital, the Milford Hospital campus and both hospital’s ambulatory sites across the region. The Diagnostic Radiology residency program at Bridgeport Hospital is an ACGME accredited, four-year residency training program approved for 16 residents. The program offers exposure and volume to a diverse case mix. Bridgeport offers state-of-the art radiology equipment including a new Force CT scanner installed in 2021. The information system is interfaced with the entire Yale New Haven Health information system for improved patient care.
Board eligible/certified Emergency/Trauma Radiologist with fellowship training (Trauma/ER, Body Imaging, Musculoskeletal or Neuroradiology training preferred) for a full-time faculty appointment. Rank is commensurate with experience. A strong interest in clinical care and education (undergraduate medical and graduate medical) is required. Clinical responsibilities include CT, ultrasound, plain radiography and emergency fluoroscopic studies.
