Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group, Department of
Radiology, is seeking a Board Eligible/Board Certified
Interventional Radiologist to join our team.
The Division of Interventional Radiology is a section of the
Department of Radiology at Loma Linda University, providing a wide
variety of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions covering the
full range of clinical conditions and patient ages. This robust
practice provides care through the full spectrum of interventional
radiology service lines, including vascular disease through a
collaborative relationship with vascular surgery.
Currently staffed by 9 board-certified IRs, this division provides
care at six hospitals, including two level 1 trauma centers, a
dedicated pediatric hospital and a thriving community hospital, a
surgical center providing both ambulatory and short-term inpatient
surgical care, and East Campus for longer term admissions. The main
facility, Loma Linda University Medical Center, is a
state-of-the-art hospital opened in 2021, is currently ranked the
number one hospital in the Inland Empire. Positioned in the
foothills of beautiful Loma Linda, California, our division is a
tertiary referral center for all nearby hospitals, providing care
in the most complex and challenging patients and conditions.
As part of Loma Linda University, this academic IR practice
provides education to the 11 DR and IR/DR residents per year,
numerous medical students on clinical and sub-internship rotations,
pre-clinical and pre-medical students desiring shadowing
experiences and mentorship, and many more. Loma Linda has a long
history of training outstanding interventional radiologists for
over 50 years through its fellowship program and now its integrated
IR/DR and independent IR residencies.
IR at Loma Linda is a fully clinical practice, with all inpatient
procedures requiring formal consultation of the IR service, and all
outpatient requests being triaged for consideration of either
in-person or virtual clinic prior to scheduling their possible
procedure. Each day begins with a morning conference at 8 am, where
the procedures scheduled for the day are presented by the residents
and the indications and approaches are discussed with the
attendings on duty that day. Procedural working hours are typically
8:30 am - 5:00 pm, with the on-call faculty staying to finish the
remaining procedures (if any). Call is taken one day at a time, and
is currently every 8th night and every 8th weekend. IR faculty are
generally provided one academic day each week. Salary is
competitive for academic practices in the region, and some internal
moonlighting opportunities are available.
