The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at Yale University School of Medicine is seeking board eligible/certified radiologists with expertise in thoracic imaging for a faculty appointment on the Academic Clinician track. Academic rank at Yale School of Medicine will be commensurate with experience, training, and achievements.
The Thoracic Section at the Yale Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging has a track record of providing high quality, timely and progressive thoracic imaging using high-end equipment. We are highly valued by our clinical colleagues for our subspecialist expertise. The thoracic imaging services we offer are high demand across the Yale New Haven Health System and we are now looking for new skilled attendings to join our team of 11 thoracic radiologists.
The Thoracic Section has a close working relationship and interacts with world-renowned pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and subspecialists in other fields of medicine. Interdisciplinary conferences encompass a broad spectrum of comprehensive lung programs, including interstitial lung disease, interventional pulmonology, thoracic oncology, lung cancer screening, and general pulmonary pathology.
While some sessions will be performed in New Haven, the primary site for coverage is Bridgeport Hospital, an affiliate of Yale-New Haven Health, located in vibrant Fairfield County, Connecticut, just outside the New York metropolitan area. This 425 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 Radiologists with expertise in thoracic imaging are encouraged to apply. As a faculty member on the Clinical Track, no scholarly output is expected although a willingness to collaborate with research projects taking place in the department is encouraged. Strong clinical leadership, teaching and service development successes may be used for promotion to Associate and Full Professor. Leadership roles and other opportunities for professional development are available depending on the applicant’s interest, goals and experience. ?A commitment to teaching residents and fellows is also required.
