The University of Minnesota is seeking applicants for a short-term or long-term locum radiologist. DVM or equivalent required. ACVR board certification required. Periods of one to several weeks preferred.
The University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center is a very busy, multi-specialty teaching hospital located in St Paul, MN. The radiology service supports surgery, neurology, oncology, cardiology, internal medicine, emergency &amp; critical care, ophthalmology, dermatology, and primary care practices. The locum role requires interpretation of digital radiographs (DR and CR), CTs (64-slice), MRIs (3 T) and special procedures (e.g. fluoroscopic procedures and contrast studies) of small (predominantly) and large animals. Performance and interpretation of ultrasounds in dogs and cats is not the emphasis of the locum but may be required. Reporting is through fully integrated voice recognition. Consultation with in-house clinicians and referring veterinarians is also expected. Instruction of house officers and students on radiology rotation occurs throughout the day.
No after-hours or weekend responsibilities are required. Compensation will be dependent upon experience and is negotiable. Travel and lodging will be the responsibility of the locum.
