Abdominal Imaging Chief

Tufts Medical Center - Boston, MA

The Tufts Medical Center Department of Radiology actively seeks an academic body imaging radiologist who can serve as the Section Chief to join a growing department with high-quality radiology residency and fellowship programs. We believe in diversity, inclusive leadership, and supportive mentorship as well as the importance of life-work balance and physician wellness.

TMC Radiology Department Vision

To create a patient-focused center of excellence for imaging services, education, and research.

We aim to achieve our departmental vision by delivering high quality and compassionate care for the patients we serve while advancing the field of radiology through our research and in educating the future leaders of our field.

TMC Radiology Department Mission

  • Provide exceptional care when, where, and how patients need it.
  • Treat the patient, not the images.
  • Be a center of creativity in physician education and scientific innovation.

About the role

The Section Chief of body imaging is expected to lead a team of body imaging radiologists, residents, and fellows rotating through the body imaging section. Routine clinical duties include interpretation of body CT, MRI, and Ultrasound studies, plain films, and fluoroscopic GI contrast studies between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Interventional radiology (IR) procedures are performed by IR department and not required for body imagers. There are multidisciplinary conferences and educational conferences with departments of GI medicine, surgery, transplant, urology, gynecology, and oncology. Participation in research projects and quality improvement projects (typically supervising medical students, residents, and fellows) are encouraged. Weekend on-call duties (dedicated body call, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM) are remote (home workstations are provided to each radiologist).

Opportunities for internal moonlighting (i.e. extra weekend calls) are available for those who are interested in earning additional income (this is voluntary).

Administrative and Academic time will be provided commensurate with administrative, educational, and research responsibilities.

Academic productivity, teaching contributions, and clinical work-based incentives are available and paid annually at the time of annual performance review with the Chair.
