Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) invites applications and nominations for the Chair of the Department of Radiation Medicine. Housed within the School of Medicine at OHSU, the states’ only public academic medical center, the Department of Radiation Medicine holds a historic reputation as the first independent department of its kind in the US. Its next Chair will provide strategic leadership for the delivery of all radiation medicine across the rapidly growing oncology service line, ensuring clinical excellence, faculty development, research growth, strong education and training opportunities, and program development. The Department of Radiation Medicine, comprised of a diverse group of radiation oncologists, medical physicists, residents, and clinical staff, delivers high-quality, complex care to a growing population in the surrounding community and throughout the state and the broader Pacific Northwest. Moving forward, OHSU is committed to solidifying the Department’s preeminent status as a provider of choice for radiation medicine in the region, and to enhancing the research and educational activities in the unit. Overall, the Department is poised to achieve still greater success in accordance with its mission to advance the field of radiation medicine through excellence in patient care, service, research, and education.
Reporting to the Interim Dean of the School of Medicine, Dr. David Jacoby, MD, the Chair will plan, organize, and direct the clinical, academic, and research, affairs of the Department of Radiation Medicine. To do so effectively, the Chair will promote and further build partnerships with senior leaders across the University, the School of Medicine, and in particular collaboration with the Knight Cancer Institute (KCI), Oregon’s only NCI designated comprehensive cancer center. As a member of the KCI, the Chair will serve as an inspirational model for faculty within the division, in ensuring clinical excellence and in further developing and encouraging collaborative research opportunities.
The Chair must hold a personal commitment to the shared values of excellence, health equity, innovation, service, scholarship, collaboration, and accountability. Bringing strong clinical, operational, research, and leadership experience within an academic medical center, the next Chair will exhibit a proven commitment to building a diverse, equitable and inclusive clinical and educational community, that engenders a welcoming environment that is safe, supportive, and equitable for all.
The Chair will have earned an MD/DO or MD/PhD, hold a board certification in Radiation Oncology, and be eligible to obtain a medical license in the state of Oregon. A record of scholarly productivity, eligibility for appointment as an associate or full professor and active participation in national academic societies is expected.
