The Department of Radiology of the University of Vermont Health Network is seeking a 1.0 FTE clinical Radiologist to practice at their New York hospital locations. This radiologist will join the University of Vermont Health Network (UVMHN) to provide radiology services for Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH) in Plattsburg, NY, Alice Hyde Medical Center (AHMC) in Malone, NY, and Elizabethtown Community Hospital (ECH) with locations in Elizabethtown, NY and Ticonderoga, NY.  CVPH is a 300-bed community hospital that provides routine, urgent and emergent care for the people of upstate New York. CVMC supports a busy Emergency Department, a robust network of employed and private primary care providers and a range of surgical specialists. AHMC and ECH are critical access hospitals serving their local communities.

The compensation package is competitive and will be commensurate with experience. The University of Vermont Medical Group offers loan repayment assistance.

Responsibilities for the ideal candidate include interpretation of diagnostic radiology studies for adult and pediatric patients in areas of service including X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound (US), basic nuclear medicine, fluoroscopy, and screening and diagnostic mammography. Interventional skills to support US- and mammography-guided breast biopsy would be desirable. 

Imaging equipment includes a Philips Ingenia 1.5T MRI, Philips Brilliance 64 slice CT scanner and Hologic Tomosynthesis unit with C-View. IT infrastructure includes state-of-the-art Visage PACS with Nuance Workflow Orchestration and PowerScribe interfaced with Epic EMR.

This is a practice that balances a range of exam modalities and exam complexities over the course of the workday. A rotating schedule incorporates on-site weeks that emphasize mammography and fluoroscopy and off-site weeks from a home workstation that emphasize US, CT, and MRI. Hybrid positions require 12 weeks or more on-site, with the amount of onsite and virtual service to be negotiated with you at the discretion of the Chair and Division Chief.  After-hours Radiology services 8 pm – 8 am) are managed via a third-party service with rotating swing shifts (12pm-8pm) covered by radiologists. Weekend shifts are optional (compensated separately) and are shared among multiple radiologists. All radiologists are expected to maintain appropriate clinical duties of this position while working remotely. Candidates will be required to complete necessary licensure and any other required documentation to legally practice teleradiology from a different State, ensuring compliance at all levels, including for coding and billing.  

For the appropriate individual, there are opportunities to practice up to 20% in one subspecialty area, either remotely or on-site at the UVMHN academic medical center. The academic practice includes 36 full and part-time radiologists who serve as the clinical faculty for a 24 member ACGME-approved diagnostic radiology residency program at the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont. Although not required, teaching opportunities will be available as resident and medical student rotations to CVPH are planned. We are seeking an individual who will contribute to the division’s pursuit of clinical excellence, patient care and multidisciplinary collaboration with our clinical colleagues.
