The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is recruiting two pediatric radiologists, one with additional neuroradiology training/experience, to work at our free-standing children’s facility.
The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is a 267-bed tertiary referral center with a catchment area extending to southern Kentucky, offering primary care to the Nashville Metropolitan area. We are currently adding four new floors to the hospital, with an initial bed increment to 339. We perform approximately 120,000 examinations annually. The department is equipped with two multidetector CT scanners, one of which is to be upgraded to a state-of-the-art ultra-fast low dose scanner, 1.5 and 3 Tesla magnets with a second 3T scanner being added, digital fluoroscopy, scintigraphy, and Siemens US. We have a 100 bed NICU with ECMO services, and an active maternal-fetal medicine program. Multiple pediatric subspecialty surgical programs include cardiac, neurology, neurosurgery, ENT, orthopedics, trauma and urology. The most recent publication of US News and World Report ranks our hospital among the top in all 10 major clinical specialties.
General call is currently shared by 9 pediatric radiologists, which will be 11 after the successful recruitment of the candidates, with remote access and in-house residents and nighthawks at night. Full time benefits include 22 vacation days, 9 holidays, and 22 meeting days, with generous university fringe benefits.
The candidates should be CAQ certified or CAQ-eligible in Pediatric. The positions entail practice within all aspects of pediatric imaging and opportunity for research. Salary will be commensurate with training and experience.
Quality of life in this area is excellent. Tennessee does not have a state income tax, and Nashville is a very family-friendly, busy cosmopolitan city, home to several colleges and universities, with many recreational and cultural amenities, including professional football & hockey, symphony, dance, arts, and many parks and nearby lakes.
