Yale New Haven Health is seeking a highly motivated individual for a Regional Chief Physicist in the Department of Radiation Oncology. The successful candidate will report to the Director of Physics and be an integral member of the Yale Physics Leadership team, together with the Smilow Chief Physicist, one other Regional Chief Physicist, and the Chief of Dosimetry. She/he will manage physics operations at the Waterford, Guilford, and Hamden regional sites, while providing direct clinical physics services at the Waterford location. The Chief Physicist will provide oversight for a regional team of four physicists and four dosimetrists. The effort is estimated to be equally split between management and direct clinical service. The successful candidate must be board-certified. Experience with Eclipse, Mosaiq/ARIA, and Varian Linacs is desired. Faculty appointment in the Yale University School of Medicine is available based on individual qualification.
Yale-New Haven Health is a part of the Yale Medical Center which is an academic center of excellence in the practice of medicine. Yale-New Haven Health operates seven clinics in Connecticut with a team of 20 medical physicists, 20 dosimetrists and 3 physics residents providing a full range of clinical medical physics services to the Smilow Cancer Hospital. The Yale Cancer Center is the only NIH-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in Connecticut. Extensive research efforts in Medical Physics, Radiation Biology, and Clinical Radiation Oncology are ongoing. The Department of Radiation Oncology treats approximately 3700 new cancer patients each year. The department offers a full range of radiation therapy treatments including IMRT, IGRT, SBRT, TBI, TSET and other special procedures using modern linear accelerators with onboard kV-, MV-, and CBCT-imaging; Gamma Knife SRS using the latest ICON unit; and a full suite of LDR and HDR brachytherapy. Major equipment includes: twelve linear accelerators, seven CT simulators, three HDR afterloaders, major treatment planning systems (cloud-hosted Eclipse, iPlan and GammaPlan), Calypso image guidance systems, C-Rad/VisionRT surface imaging system, as well as Citrix-based enterprise Mosaiq information management system.
