Title: Acting Instructor-Provisional, Proton Radiation Therapy Fellowship


Position Details


Position Description

The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Washington (UW) School of Medicine is seeking applications for our Proton Radiation Therapy Fellowship Program. Fellows in this 1-year program will receive comprehensive training in all aspects of proton radiation therapy including comprehensive clinical and technical proton therapy experience in the treatment of pediatric and adult patients across the full range of disease sites.

Clinical rotations will involve working with UW Medicine faculty at the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Proton Therapy Center, and Seattle Children’s Hospital to ensure continuity of care across sites.  The fellowship’s curriculum encompasses work with pediatric and adult populations across multiple practice sites and is adaptable to meet candidate’s varying clinical and research interests.

Research rotations are customized to the fellow’s interests and include opportunities in clinical, physics, radiobiology, imaging, and health services research programs within the SCCA Proton Therapy Center, University of Washington, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

The selected candidate will be proposed for appointment to the full-time faculty at the University of Washington as an Acting Instructor – Provisional with an anticipated start date of August 1, 2022.  This position has an annual service period (July 1 - June 30). This is a full-time position with a twelve-month appointment with salary paid over twelve months.

Department Overview:

The SCCA Proton Therapy Center is located on the 30-acre Northwest Campus of UW Medicine with 4 treatment rooms with the capability to deliver both uniform and pencil-beam scanning. Chemotherapy and conventional radiation therapy facilities are available in the immediate vicinity, providing comprehensive care to proton therapy patients. Overall, the UW Department of Radiation Oncology treats over 2,800 patients per year in multimodality programs and with strong emphasis on tumor imaging, using advanced stereotactic image-guided modalities, as well as IMRT, IGRT, 3D conformal radiation therapy, proton and neutron radiation, IORT and LDR/HDR brachytherapy. Other radiation therapy delivery systems include 7 linear accelerators, IGRT-capability, and Perfexion Gamma Knife. The department has direct access to PET/CT (with novel tracers), SPECT/CT, and MRI that are integrated in the planning process.   Planning/IT systems include CMS, MIM, and RayStation.  Seattle’s proximity to the coast and mountains with ample year-round outdoor recreational activities along with its rich arts and cultural scene make it one of the most geographically and culturally desirable cities in the U.S.

NOTE: This position will require work to be performed on-site at a Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) facility. SCCA requires all individuals, including University of Washington faculty clinicians, working at an SCCA facility to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Unlike UW’s vaccination policy which is appended below, the SCCA policy does not provide for religious or medical exemptions. As such, a UW offer associated with this recruitment is contingent upon, among other things, the preferred candidate demonstrating that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by no later than the commencement of their appointment.

Qualifications

The successful applicant must have an MD or a DO, or foreign equivalent, and be board certified or eligible in Radiation Oncology with the American Board of Radiology (ABR).  In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-US) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
