Our system includes the 1,200 physicians and scientists of the Henry Ford Medical Group, seven hospitals, Health Alliance Insurance Plan, over 30 primary care centers, and many other health-related entities throughout Southeast Michigan. The flagship Henry Ford Hospital is a large multi-specialty academic practice in Southeastern Michigan. The Detroit campus hospital is an active Level I Trauma and tertiary/quaternary care center for Pulmonary Medicine, Orthopedics, Oncology, Organ Transplant (including kidney, liver, heart, lung, and multi-visceral), Gastrointestinal Disease, Urology and Cardiovascular Disease, amongst others. These services, combined with an active primary care base, translate into a diverse array of radiological exams with a broad spectrum of pathology. The system currently performs over 1.4 million examinations per year across over 400 units of imaging equipment in all modalities.
The minimum requirements for the position are a Ph.D. or M.S. degree in a physical science, two year’s clinical experience, and board certification or eligibility by the American Board of Radiology.
The successful candidate must have good communication and teaching skills and should be able to provide support in all aspects of imaging physics and radiation safety.
The ideal candidate will have experience working with all imaging modalities, and experience with Nuclear Medicine is highly desired. The final job responsibilities within the group will depend on the applicant's previous experience. Active involvement in the imaging physics community through participation in radiology and physics societies (e.g. AAPM, RSNA, SNMMI, ACR, SIIM, SPIE, etc.) is also desired.
