Position: Seeking either a practicing physician or a new 2018 graduate. Full-time, partnership-track opportunities are available for a team-oriented, innovative, and progressive radiation oncologist seeking a private practice opportunity with a large stable independent group.
Practice description: Radiation Oncology Associates, Ltd. is private practice group of 16 physicians serving 14 different radiation therapy departments in eastern Wisconsin. The group, formed in 1975, is a large and stable group that offers partnership track and democratic governance. The group fosters equality and cooperation among its members to provide the highest level of service to the departments that we serve. Each physician is encouraged to participate in peer review, clinical research, outcome studies and the business issues of the group.
Each new physician member is expected to become a partner in the group after three full-time years of satisfactory employment. He/she is given frequent feedback to assure that our performance standards are maintained and our group culture is adopted. New members are mentored in our professional value system, which emphasizes excellent patient care, leadership skills in running departments, collegial relations with referring physicians and hospital staff, and group camaraderie. ROA's management style fosters cooperation among physicians to serve their departments and their patients. We work as a cooperative whole, rather than competing individuals.
Radiation Oncology Associates has a successful track record of providing strong medical leadership to radiation oncology departments. We work cooperatively with institutions to improve radiation oncology services and thereby increase patient census. We coordinate with other medical specialists to fortify the oncology service line. We apply routine and specialized procedure skills to the treatment of our cancer patients. We pursue the acquisition of new techniques shown to be clinically efficacious. We actively participate in clinical research.
Opportunities: We are currently recruiting for three positions within our group. These new positions are due to replacement of retiring partners, new patient growth and new additional radiation therapy departments. Under our staffing model, you are usually assigned to a primary site, but some travel and cross coverage of other departments is required, but all within a limited geographic region.
North: Our Northern circuit, centered around Green Bay, is seeking to add a fourth physician. Collectively, physicians in this circuit see nearly 800 patients annually. All departments are equipped with Varian TruBeam accelerators and wide bore CT sim. Green Bay has HDR brachytherapy, LDR prostate seed implant, and an active SRS and SBRT radiosurgery program. They are currently participating in trials for IORT for breast cancer and they actively enroll patients to NGR trials.
Green Bay is most notably the home of the Packers. Green Bay and the Fox Valley is primarily a manufacturing area with a thriving economy with a population approaching 1 million. The area was listed as one of the most “financially fit” metropolitan areas in the US among similar sized communities. The public school systems are rated highly, and achieve test scores that regularly outperform the national averages. The area is rich in natural resources with opportunities for all types of outdoor activities. But in the fall, you’d best be prepared to wear green and gold.
South: Kenosha is located midway between Chicago and Milwaukee offering easy access (45 minutes) to both metropolitan areas. Kenosha is home to many manufacturing companies and a new 1 million square foot fulfillment center for Amazon.
Our Kenosha radiation therapy department has two (2) TruBeam linear accelerators and they see 350 patients per year. They are equipped with wide bore CT, full-time physics and two full-time dosimetrists. The department was brand new in 2014 and is an integrated clinic with adjacent medical oncology.
Central: St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee treats over 1000 patients a year. The department has a wide-bore CT simulator; with Varian True Beam, Varian Trilogy, and CyberKnife (X2). HDR brachytherapy is on-site, as well as LDR implants including an active prostate seed program. The site is an NRG affiliate. The candidate will be expected to perform stereotactic radiosurgery and brachytherapy, in addition to IMRT and IGRT. A special interest in CNS malignancies is helpful.
Milwaukee is the largest city in Wisconsin, with a metro area population of 1.5 million. The city is known for its historic architecture and neighborhoods. Milwaukee celebrates a strong ethnic heritage with many restaurants and festivals. It is an affordable city on the western shoreline of Lake Michigan offering a thriving culture and arts scene, museums, professional sports and many opportunities for outdoor activities, making it an attractive area to live and raise a family.
