The Department of Radiation Oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital seeks to recruit a full-time radiation oncologist to lead its Sarcoma Service at the main campus location in Boston. The Radiation Oncology Department, an integral part of the comprehensive Mass General Cancer Center, is equipped with Elekta and Varian linear accelerators with integrated imaging capabilities, a proton cyclotron with 3 treatment rooms (and a second center opening later this year), GE CT Simulators, and Raystation and Astroid Treatment Planning systems. The department, including our community-based locations, treats over 400 patients per day. The department is fully supported by a talented team of radiation therapists, dosimetrists, medical physicists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and administrative support staff.
The Sarcoma Radiation Oncology Service is one of the largest in the world, treating over 500 patients and providing close to 6,000 treatments per year across both proton and photon modalities. The Service also focuses on innovation, groundbreaking research, and contributes to the teaching mission of the hospital and Harvard Medical School.
The qualified individual must have established clinical and research experience specializing in sarcoma radiation therapy. Clinical leadership experience is also preferred. The incumbent will enjoy working in a collaborative, multidisciplinary clinical, research, and academic setting with colleagues in the Department and throughout the hospital. Candidates should have an MD degree, training in Radiation Oncology and Board certification in Radiation Oncology. Academic appointment at Harvard Medical School will be at the Associate Professor level (or higher).
