Position Summary

The Department of Radiology at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center is seeking applicants for a full-time Cardiothoracic Radiologist. This is a faculty position that reports to the Department Chair.

The position includes clinical service and teaching as well as close collaboration with consulting services in Thoracic Surgery, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Thoracic Oncology, Trauma, Medical and Surgical Services. Clinical responsibilities include all diagnostic aspects of thoracic imaging including chest radiography, CT, dual energy CT, and chest and cardiac MRI, but do not include performance of interventional procedures. Additional opportunities include participation in tumor boards, multidisciplinary conferences and other interdisciplinary activities. The successful candidate will also assist in other radiology subspecialties according to their interest and expertise.

Successful candidates must be committed to working with broadly diverse student and community populations. The candidate must be ABR board certified or board eligible in Diagnostic Radiology by contract start date and have experience in cardiothoracic radiology. Candidates who have completed a cardiothoracic fellowship are preferred, and willingness and experience in another related area of specialty would be beneficial.

Research opportunities are available and encouraged. State-of-the-art translational imaging and image processing facilities are available and research is supported by dedicated research staff.

All faculty are responsible for mentoring and teaching diagnostic radiology residents, cardiology fellows, and medical students. Most daily clinical assignments involve direct resident supervision, and all faculty contribute to resident didactic education. Successful candidates must be committed to working with broadly diverse student and community populations.

The Department of Radiology provides services for the UNM Hospital, a 580-bed Level 1 Trauma and Tertiary Care Center including UNM Children's Hospital; the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center; the 71-bed Sandoval Regional Medical Center; and the 320-bed Veteran's Affairs Medical Center.

The University and our Department have a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, and we are particularly interested in receiving applications from a broad spectrum of physicians, including members of racial and ethnic minorities, women, veterans, LGBTQ physicians, and individuals with disabilities, including disabled veterans. We are committed to caring for the diverse population of our minority-majority state and seek physicians with the same commitment to working with broadly diverse learner and community populations.

The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center is located in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley with stunning natural beauty.
