Regulatory and Accreditation Requirements: As a member of the Imaging Physics team, Physics I is expected to maintain expertise in regulatory and accreditation requirements (e.g. state, federal, TJC, ACR) that pertain to Diagnostic Imaging. Physics Equipment Testing: Physics I will be responsible for general x-ray, portable x-ray, and mobile C-arm testing. Physics I staff will also be assigned advanced modality surveys (e.g. CT, MRI, FGI, Nuclear Medicine) which will be overseen by a Senior Physicist. Depending on the experience of the Physics I staff member these surveys may be performed under full supervision or may be performed independently with the Senior Physicist reviewing the final report. Optimization of Techniques/Clinical Applications: The Physicist will assure equipment is used optimally and will work with technologists and radiologists to develop clinical and research protocols. Additional Responsibilities: All physicists will be expected to assist in the following duties: Site planning in the form of shielding design and shielding integrity verification. Patient dose estimates (fetal, skin, effective dose). Imaging physics education for residents, clinical staff, and students in the NM Academy Schools. Working Conditions: The Imaging Physics group is responsible for overseeing the completion of physics services for the Northwestern Medicine network. This involves traveling to NM imaging centers and hospitals in the north and west suburbs. Physicists have a primary reporting location of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, but physicists will also be expected to travel to off-sites to support physics services. Mileage expenses is reimbursed. AA/EOE. #LI-VZ1 Required: Minimum of a MS degree in Medical Physics or related field. Eligible for registration as a Diagnostic Imaging Specialist with the State of Illinois. Preferred: 1+ years of experience as an Imaging Medial Physicist. Board eligible by ABR in Diagnostic Radiological Physics.
