The Moncton Hospital, a facility within Horizon Health Network, is recruiting full-time General Radiologists to join our team of twelve Radiologists. Services include all modalities including CT, MRI, Ultrasound, Mammography, Nuclear Medicine as well as basic Fluoroscopic examinations and procedures.
Horizon Health Network, www.horizonnb.ca, is one of the largest health-care organization in Atlantic Canada, operating 12 hospitals and more than 100 medical facilities, clinics and offices providing medical services ranging from acute care to community based health services to New Brunswick, northern Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. With 1,000 physicians, an annual budget exceeding $1 billion and approximately 13,000 employees, Horizon Health Network’s strategic vision focuses on research, innovation and education.
The Moncton Hospital is a 386-bed tertiary and critical care facility within Horizon Health Network. Referral population includes Eastern New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and North-Western Nova Scotia. It is a major referral hospital which serves communities throughout New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and northern Nova Scotia. It is a Level II Trauma Centre and offers tertiary services in neurosurgery, oncology and neonatal care and includes all other major services and subspecialties.
The Moncton Hospital offers excellent opportunities for teaching and clinical research and has academic affiliation with Dalhousie University and Memorial University of Newfoundland. The hospital is one of the largest employers within metro Moncton, employing 3,000 staff and physicians.
A typical weekly schedule will include:
· Assigned rotation to each of the different modalities
· On-call coverage (roughly 1 in 7)
· Performance of basic procedures such as arthrograms, injections and/or biopsies.
· Regular participation at multi-disciplinary rounds
· Occasional teaching residents and medical students
The Department of Medical Imaging at The Moncton Hospital has a group practice structure whereby work is divided equally; and radiologist fee-for-service income is pooled and shared among the group members. This maintains a collegial atmosphere whereby high-quality clinical services can be provided without being impacted by financial considerations. It also allows individual radiologists to specialize in less well remunerated areas of practice or procedures without seeing a reduction in income in comparison to their peers in the department. All new radiologists joining the Department are expected to join this group structure.
EXPECTED START DATE:
To be determined.
