Summary Description

The Department of Radiology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center / NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is seeking a full-time faculty member to join the Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology.

The Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology is a dynamic and robust service that works hand in hand with world class referring physicians. There is a strong emphasis on adult and pediatric sports imaging as we provide imaging services for professional teams including the New York Yankees, New York City Football Club, Rockland Boulders, collegiate athletic programs including Fordham University and Columbia University, and numerous regional high school athletic programs. Spine imaging is also a focal point in our practice as we work closely with The Spine Hospital, the only dedicated spine hospital in New York.

The division provides a full array of musculoskeletal imaging and interventions including MRI, CT, X-ray, diagnostic US, and image-guided interventions. We pride ourselves, first and foremost, on a collegial team-oriented work environment with all faculty members working closely together to provide a high level of patient care.

Columbia provides the best location to work in New York City with a very easy commute from anywhere on the West Side of Manhattan or from any number of great towns/villages in the beautiful suburbs of Northern New Jersey or Westchester and Rockland Counties in New York. Candidates may also have the opportunity to spend time working from our outpatient center in Westchester County, NY (approximately 25 minutes from NYC), if desired.

Salary and academic rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Columbia University offers a highly competitive benefits package, including numerous retirement plans, and ample time off for vacation and CME.
