University Medical Imaging Consultants (UMIC), University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon
Permanent Full-Time Academic & Clinical Position
WHY WE ARE HIRING
UMIC has undergone significant recent expansion of services combined with some pending radiologist retirements. As such, we are recruiting with Interventional Radiology as an area of special need.
ABOUT OUR PRACTICE
UMIC is currently a group of 29 radiologists centered in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We have a mixed academic, hospital and community practice. All our members are affiliated with the University of Saskatchewan and actively involved in teaching and supervising residents and medical students. Our mix of academic and clinical services allows us to have an academic mission combined with good remuneration. We have a large on-site presence at Royal University Hospital and Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon. We also provide diagnostic radiology services for Battlefords Union Hospital (in North Battleford) and Lloydminster Hospital (in Lloydminster) through a mixture of remote and on-site services. We own and operate Saskatoon Medical Imaging, a community radiology practice providing mammography, ultrasound, and x-ray services at over 20 clinics centered in Saskatoon. We have also recently started providing outpatient MRI and CT services at National Medical Imaging in Saskatoon.
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
The preferred candidates will have strong clinical training in Interventional Radiology. Although working within the specialty is expected, candidates must also be able and willing to practice covering a wider range of general radiology. Candidates must be willing to work both in hospital and clinic settings. Ability to perform breast imaging (mammography and ultrasound) would be preferred.
Candidates must also have an interest in academic radiology with a focus on resident supervision/teaching. A desire to participate in research including resident research supervision would be preferred but is not essential.
Diagnostic services covered by our group include MRI (3.0T & 1.5T with subspecialty reading), CT, ultrasound, mammography, radiography, and fluoroscopy.
Interventional radiology is hospital based and includes vascular (trauma/GI bleed embolizations, vascular access, uterine artery fibroid/AVM/hemorrhage embolizations, TACE, IVC filters) and non-vascular (biliary and gallbladder drains, nephrostomy tubes and ureteric stents, PG/PGJ tube placements, image guided ablations, chest and abdominal drains, image guided biopsies). Areas of desired expansion include but are not limited to TIPS and TARE.
