Job Description & Requirements
Division Chief for Breast Imaging in Connecticut
StartDate: ASAP

The Breast Imaging Division at Yale University School of Medicine is a nationally recognized team of academic radiologists who provide comprehensive, progressive multidisciplinary breast care. We are proud to be a part of Yale New Haven Health, an academic health system that extends throughout Connecticut and beyond.

As part of our unprecedented growth, we are restructuring our leadership teams to better serve our various missions. We have created a new leadership role and are now seeking an experienced breast imaging specialist to lead the service as the Division Chief for Breast Imaging at the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging. In this pivotal role, the postholder will be charged with taking the tradition of academic breast imaging excellence at Yale to the next level. A focus on coordinating high-quality clinical breast imaging operations throughout multiple sites will be required and will be supported by two new regional section chief positions who will report to the incoming Division Chief.

We are also seeking additional faculty members to help support our continued growth – all applicants interested in faculty positions are encouraged to apply. The Department prioritizes every opportunity to promote its faculty through either excellent academic pursuits or strong clinical service. As early pioneers of digital breast tomosynthesis, our team consists of innovative leaders and nationally recognized experts in the field. With a flourishing breast imaging fellowship and one of the largest radiology residencies in the country, the incoming leader and faculty will be plugged into a rich environment where medical education, training, and research are happening at the highest level.

Yale New Haven Hospital is a 1,541-bed specialized teaching hospital located in New Haven, CT that performed nearly 27,000 breast imaging studies in 2019. The hospital also includes the 168-bed Smilow Cancer Hospital, a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Yale Breast Center is an integral part of Smilow Cancer Hospital and is an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. Breast Imaging at Smilow includes upright digital breast tomosynthesis-guided and stereotactic biopsy and a dedicated 3T breast MRI. YNHH includes Yale New Haven Hospital, Bridgeport Hospital, Greenwich Hospital, Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, and Westerly Hospital in Rhode Island. The Yale Breast Imaging division currently also provides services in multiple satellite offices located within proximity to the main campus in New Haven, which together performs an additional 90,000 breast imaging studies per year.

Qualifications:
All applicants must be fellowship trained in breast imaging and must display proficiency in screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, MRI, and multimodality image-guided breast interventions. For the Division Chief role, candidates should be eligible for appointment at the Associate or Full Professor rank. Interested applicants should be board certified/eligible and must be eligible for licensure in the state of CT.

Interested applicants should upload their CV, cover letter, and three letters of reference to: https://apply.interfolio.com/74230. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
