The Department of Radiation Oncology of Vanderbilt University Medical Center has several exciting opportunities for board eligible or board certified radiation oncologists to join our growing faculty. Potential academic areas of interest include pediatric and head and neck cancers, as well as generalists to support our close-by satellites. Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. Proton experience is preferred but not required.
Successful candidates should have excellent interpersonal skills to develop multidisciplinary collaboration and referral bases, outstanding clinical skills, and a keen interest in resident education and research. The department places heavy emphasis on developing future leaders in radiation oncology with medical and physics residency programs and strong support of the ABR Holman pathway. Vanderbilt also offers a wealth of research resources with the ability to collaborate with a world class Institute of Imaging Science (https://www.vuiis.vanderbilt.edu/about#aboutCollab), access to DNA databases (https://victr.vanderbilt.edu/pub/biovu/), de-identified databases for retrospective studies, and outstanding biostat support (https://www.vumc.org/biostatistics/).
The Department’s main campus and its three regional satellites are fully integrated and provide state-of-the-art therapy including stereotactic radiosurgery, intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), total body irradiation, total body electrons, brachytherapy and intraoperative radiation therapy. The Department is an integral member of the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, which has again been named among the nation’s elite providers of specialty care by U.S. News and World Report magazine. Vanderbilt now ranks 8th in NIH funding, and with a new chairperson, internationally recognized for her clinical trial research, we are looking for motivated leaders to participate in exceptional patient care and our growing research mission.
