EMPLOYER: Washington University School of Medicine, Department of Radiation Oncology, St. Louis, Missouri
Summary: The Department of Radiation Oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine has an exceptional opportunity for a clinical radiation therapy medical physicist to join our practice and lead a team of four other physicists at our newly created affiliation with CoxHealth. This is a unique opportunity to become a member of one of the most established academic medical physics groups while working and leading in a very progressive community center. Washington University has fully integrated medical physics operations and this position offers benefits of practicing in a diverse community radiation therapy practice with support of a broader team across a network of community and academic practices.
Environment: The medical physics division currently has 33 other medical physicists for support of our clinical operations, research, educational, and outreach activates. The division has over 50 other members consisting of medical physics assistants, QA technicians, residents, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, programmers, and staff. This position is located at CoxHealth in Springfield Missouri and consists of two clinics, four linear accelerators, comprehensive brachytherapy, stereotactic radiotherapy, and a host of other procedures and equipment. This radiation oncology practice is led by a group of advanced and supportive radiation oncologists and administrators dedicated to excellence in clinical care and operations (https://vimeo.com/209294801). Springfield is the third largest city in Missouri and offers great quality of life and very attractive environment.
The Department of Radiation Oncology at Washington University has developed an exceedingly integrated network of academic and community practices with a mission of advancing the field through research, education, and state of the art clinical practices. The department supports several education programs, including the longest-standing CAMPEP accredited medical physics residency. All our affiliate clinical facilities are dedicated to promotion of best practices and our clinical operations are designed to leverage the size and scope of resources to advance all practices jointly.
The chief of physics at CoxHealth would be responsible for leading the local medical physics team while actively interfacing with the broader team and supporting development and deployment of best clinical practices. Depending on interests, there are multiple opportunities for participation in clinical trials, education, and research efforts.
The successful candidate must be certified by the American Board of Radiology or equivalent in Therapeutic Medical Physics, have a doctoral degree, five years of clinical experience, and be eligible to assume the role of Radiation Safety Officer. Preferences will be given to candidates with prior leadership experience. Washington University is an equal opportunity employer.
