Responsibilities

Radiologist - Breast Imaging

Position Highlights
Team Approach to Breast & Diagnostic Imaging. The breast team collaborates to provide comprehensive screening, diagnostic, and interventional services for a wide variety of patients. Radiologists participate in tumor board and multidisciplinary conferences with in-house medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists and pathologists. All members of the team work for Virginia Mason and have the same cultural approach to care: the patient comes first. Virginia Mason also supports multiple breast clinics staffed by ARNP’s who see patients urgently for patients with new concerns and communicate biopsy results.

In addition to providing care in breast radiology, the candidate will read exams in another area of radiology to develop their knowledge and expertise outside of breast imaging. This might range from general plain films and ultrasound to subspecialty musculoskeletal, abdominal, or neuroradiology imaging, depending on their professional goals and training.

Teaching Program. Virginia Mason supports residency programs in radiology, anesthesiology, surgery, and internal medicine. Radiology faculty have come to Virginia Mason to teach as it is an important part of our mission. Teaching is a requirement and a highlight of what we do at Virginia Mason. Residents cover the hospital radiology service in-house on weeknights from 7:30 pm until 7:30 am and on weekends from 5:00 pm to 7:30 am. There is no in-house overnight call for attending radiologists.

Research. Research is not required, however, is encouraged and supported for those with an interest in clinical research or quality improvement. Internal pilot grants are available. The Virginia Mason Center for Health Care Improvement also supports publication of innovations in health care delivery and quality improvement.

Career Growth. The breast imaging section, radiology department and other departments within the medical center are dedicated to training and developing leaders from within the organization for clinical leadership roles.
