Open faculty position at Stanford for July

The Division of Neuroimaging & Neurointervention in the Department of Radiology at Stanford University is searching for a full-time neuroradiologist who will work evening/night shifts every other week, with a small number of day shifts, and with participation in the neuroradiology call pool. The incumbent will work closely with the evening and night shift radiology residents and neuroradiology fellows. The position will be at the Clinical Instructor level in the Clinician Educator Line. The major criteria for appointment for Clinician Educators is excellence in the overall mix of clinical care and clinical teaching appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill.

The successful candidate will mainly contribute his/her clinical expertise at Stanford Hospital & Clinics, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, and VA Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS). The position will also involve teaching to Stanford medical students, residents and fellows.

Candidates must be ABR-certified radiologists who have completed an ACGME-approved fellowship in Neuroradiology and who are Neuroradiology CAQ-certified or eligible. Proficiency with neuroradiology procedure skills is expected. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills with clinicians, patients, and trainees are required. The Division of Neuroimaging & Neurointervention at Stanford has leaders in all aspects of neuroradiology, including Interventional Neuroradiology and advanced applications of non-invasive imaging of the brain, spine, and head and neck. The focus of the Division of Neuroimaging & Neurointervention is to perform clinical neuroradiology at the highest level, to engage in important and novel research, and to train the future leaders in academic neuroradiology.

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and applications from women, members of minority groups, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, as well as from others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research, teaching and clinical …

Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship Position at Stanford

We are adding a new diagnostic neuroradiology fellowship position starting July 1, 2015.

The Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship at Stanford is a two-year fellowship. It is designed to be a well-balanced academic training program that encompasses all of the basic and advanced clinical and research areas of both adult and pediatric neuroradiology. Neuroradiology fellows will be exposed to all imaging modalities used to evaluate neurologic disease, including CT, MR, myelography, angiography, and ultrasound during the course of the fellowship. Interventional neuroradiologic procedures are also performed at state-of-the-art levels at Stanford, and neuroradiology fellows will actively participate in these procedures.…

International Survey of Acute Stroke Imaging Capabilities

STIR is conducting a survey to collect information about the imaging capabilities of centers across the world in the setting of acute stroke.

The rationale for the survey is explained in the following link: http://stroke.ahajournals.org/content/early/2013/06/11/STROKEAHA.113.001441.long.

If you are interested in being involved in future imaging-based stroke clinical trials, please respond to the following survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DQRDYB2.

This survey should take approximately 15 minutes of your time. Deadline to take the survey is September 30, 2013. A prize winner will be drawn at random amongst the colleagues who fill up the survey completely. The prize will be an Apple iPad with Retina Display, Black, 16 GB, Wifi only.

The results of this survey will be published, and the data will be stored so that, in the future, we can contact you if an imaging trial is planned that involves capabilities available at your center. We will contact you in the future for updates, to make sure that the data for your site is current.

Thank you for your collaboration!
