Imaging Medical Physicist II
Make the most of your superior scientific expertise as part of our Imaging Physics team.
Maintain expertise in regulatory and accreditation requirements (e.g., state, federal, TJC, ACR) that pertain to diagnostic imaging.
Own responsibility for general x-ray, portable x-ray, and mobile C-arm testing.
Participate in assigned advanced modality surveys/reports (e.g., CT, MRI, FGI, nuclear medicine), which are overseen by a senior physicist (extent of independence and supervision of surveys dependent on experience).
Ensure equipment is used optimally and will work with technologists and radiologists to develop clinical and research protocols.
Assist in site planning (shielding design and shielding integrity verification), patient dose estimates (fetal, skin, effective dose).
Perform imaging physics education for residents, clinical staff, and students in the NM Academy Schools.
Oversee the completion of physics services for the Northwestern Medicine network, which involves traveling to NM imaging centers and hospitals in the north and west suburbs.
Travel to off-sites to support physics services as needed (beyond primary reporting location of Northwestern Memorial Hospital).
