Responsibilities for the ideal candidate include interpretation of diagnostic radiology studies for adult and pediatric patients in areas of service including X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound (US), basic nuclear medicine, fluoroscopy, and screening and diagnostic mammography. Interventional skills to support arthrograms, US- and mammography-guided breast biopsy and US-guided thyroid FNA would be desirable.

After-hours Radiology services are managed via third party final reads with rotating call shared among 3 Porter-based radiologists. For the appropriate individual, there are opportunities to practice up to 30% in one subspecialty area, either remotely or on-site at the UVMHN academic medical center.
