The medical physicist shall provide comprehensive medical physics services in a wide range of imaging modalities: assist with the implementation of quality control and accreditation programs, assist in evaluation of new imaging modalities under consideration by the institution, perform tasks and address issues related to acceptance testing, quality assurance, regulatory standards, accreditation, investigational clinical research and participate in educational training programs supported by the department as needed.
The appropriate clinical implementation of these complex technologies requires the expertise of a board-certified diagnostic radiology physicist who will assist with implementing and enforcing the YNHH image optimization and quality management program in compliance with all state, federal and institutional requirements.
This is a full time Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH) and affiliate Hospitals system wide. The successful candidate will be an employee of YNHH Radiology and Biomedical Imaging.
This position will report to the chief of diagnostic medical physics of radiology and biomedical imaging. We currently have 4 diagnostic medical physicists and two diagnostic physics residents.
Education and Certification: Ph.D. in medical physics or related specialty. Board certified in diagnostic radiologic physics by the American Board of Radiology or, in diagnostic imaging physics by the American Board of Medical Physics. Should have a minimum of 8 years of recent full-time experience in clinical diagnostic imaging physics.
About Yale New Haven Health
Let’s put the health back in health care. We’re tossing out the approach that treated isolated episodes of care. In its place, we’re collaborating with different providers to expand our view and drive real change in how we all use health care.
For far too long, we in the United States have focused more on “sick care” rather than “health care,” treating what ails us instead of caring for ourselves in a holistic, preventive manner.
At Yale New Haven Health, we deliver extraordinary, compassionate care by working alongside providers and payers on innovative, cost-effective healthcare delivery models that improve care and value for patients – and enhance the health of our communities.
The result: Helping our patients to be as healthy and well as they can be. Join us.
Our system brings together five of Connecticut’s most distinctive hospitals and the physicians of Northeast Medical Group, each with strong ties to their local communities. It’s this distinction that makes us different. Our purpose is to keep patients healthy, deal with their symptoms early, help manage chronic conditions and lower care costs. We take this commitment seriously, following... patients every step of the way, as they move from one setting to another over the course of their care.
With more than 6,300 physicians, including a 600-member multispecialty physician foundation, and over 20,000 employees, Yale New Haven Health is Connecticut’s leading healthcare system. The experience and expertise of our medical staff, access to the latest research and technology, and top-notch facilities make us a major contributor to the medical and economic health of the region.
