Washington University School of Medicine — Faculty Radiation Oncologist, Community Practice

The Department of Radiation Oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri has an exceptional opportunity for a faculty Radiation Oncologist dedicated to the care of patients in our community practices.

The specific position and rank will be commensurate with experience and track-record. The Washington University Medical School and faculty practice is affiliated with the Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s Hospitals and the NCI designated Siteman Cancer Center. In addition to the main campus, we have 6 off-campus multidisciplinary facilities in the metro St. Louis area.

Barnes-Jewish Hospital has one of the largest hospital based radiation oncology facilities in the US. There are 10 external beam treatment devices including a Mevion proton machine, Gamma Knife, ViewRay and Ethos technology along with 2 simulators (7 including our off campus facilities), and a dedicated brachytherapy suite. We typically treat over 4000 new patients per year with external beam radiation therapy and more than 3000 brachytherapy or radio-isotope treatments annually.

The department features a fully-accredited four-year Radiation Oncology residency training program (ACGME certified), and a two-year residency Medical Physics training program (CAMPEP certified). Our department has a long history of significant contributions to academic radiation oncology. Department faculty are actively involved in multidisciplinary disease teams to provide clinical care, research, and teaching of medical students and fellows. All our treatment centers achieved APEx accreditation in 2017.

We are seeking individuals committed to a career in academic medicine with plans for clinical and/or translational research. The department encourages investigator initiated research.

Applicants must have at least four years of residency training in radiation oncology, and should be board certified or eligible by the American Board of Radiology-Radiation Oncology. Additionally they should be eligible for Missouri and Illinois medical licenses.

Washington University School of Medicine’s culture of collaboration and inclusion is the foundation for success in everything it does. The School of Medicine recognizes that by bringing together people from varying backgrounds, experiences and areas of expertise, it can develop richer solutions to complex scientific questions, train culturally sensitive clinicians and provide health care in a way that best serves our diverse patient population. To support these values, the School of Medicine is deeply committed to building a diverse and inclusive community in which everyone is welcomed and valued. As the School of Medicine engages more fully with the community around it and appeals more broadly to student talent, it has adopted a clearer priority on diversifying its own ranks. Washington University encourages and gives full consideration to all applicants for admission, financial aid and employment regardless of race, color, ethnicity, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, ability, gender identity or expression, national origin, veteran status, socio-economic status, genetic information. We implement policies and practices that support the inclusion of all such potential students, trainees and employees and are committed to being an institution that is accessible to everyone who learns, conducts research, works and seeks care on our campus. We provide reasonable accommodations to those seeking that assistance.
