The Department of Radiology at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine is seeking a Division Lead in Nuclear Medicine.
At Montefiore, DOING MORE means building on a history of firsts to create the future of healthcare. For over 100 years, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of medicine with innovations such as the intravenous cardiac pacemaker, one of the nation’s first kidney transplants and the first use of I-131 to treat a thyroid cancer patient. As we continue to move forward, we seek professionals who want to join our team of leaders and trailblazers to advance the health of our communities in Westchester, the Hudson Valley and the Bronx.
The Montefiore Nuclear Medicine Division has both a national and international reputation for its superb work. There are 8 full time dedicated Nuclear Medicine Physicians, each with at least dual training in Medicine, Cardiology or Radiology. There is a nuclear physicist and a radiochemist, and there are several research scientists and support personnel in the department. The clinical and research faculty are engaged in abundant collaborations within the Department of Radiology and with other clinical and basic science departments. Montefiore/Einstein Radiology and Nuclear Medicine also serve and often lead our local and national societies, our colleges, and our certifying boards.
The Nuclear Medicine Division operates five major clinical sites within close proximity of one another. It performs approximately 20,000 thousand procedures per year. Its research space includes a micro PET/SPECT/CT lab, and the faculty will have access to the department’s new 3D printing lab. The Department of Radiology is expanding and has also begun a 4-5 year capital initiative program which will almost totally replace its equipment, including approximately 15 general nuclear medicine and PET/CT imaging devices.
The division runs 1, 2 and 3-year Nuclear Medicine Residencies with a total of 6 slots at any time. It is also responsible for the Nuclear Medicine training of Radiology Residents and Cardiology Fellows. It manages the Nuclear Medicine technologist training program as well.
The successful candidate for Nuclear Medicine Division Lead should be eligible for appointment at the rank of Associate or Full Professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The candidate should have interests and a proven track record in clinical imaging and treatment excellence, research, and publications in Nuclear Medicine. Academic Rank and Salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience.
