Stanford Medicine is initiating a search for the position of Chair and Professor of the Department of Radiology. Recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions, Stanford University is located in Silicon Valley, the heart of the Bay Area bioscience community. Stanford Medicine incorporates the School of Medicine as well as two internationally renowned hospitals: Stanford Health Care, and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. It is situated on Stanford campus, which also includes the Schools of Humanities and Sciences, Engineering, Law, Business, Earth Sciences, and Education.
Stanford Radiology provides patient-centric imaging services using state-of-the-art technology at each of five distinct imaging locations. These include Stanford Medicine Imaging Center, Palo Alto; Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center, Redwood City; Blake Wilbur Outpatient Clinic; Stanford Hospital Department of Radiology; and Stanford Advanced Medicine Center/Cancer Center. Innovative approaches to the design of the physical facilities, always with the patient's experience in mind, have led to improvements garnering the highest in patient-satisfaction ratings. These improvements have included the addition of specialized staffing, and expedited scheduling, insurance approvals, and report turnaround times.
Throughout its history, the Stanford Department of Radiology has worked continuously to develop the infrastructure necessary to expand interdisciplinary research efforts in anatomic imaging, instrumentation development, molecular imaging, nanotechnology, information sciences, systems biology, and interventional therapeutic advances. Coupling this rich biomedical imaging foundation with an energetic, forward thinking, and creative faculty and staff, the Department is able to introduce leading-edge imaging solutions and technology to other research communities and into clinical practice.
Ultimately, Stanford Radiology plans to play a very important role in the development of personalized medicine by moving advances from the laboratories to the clinic for improved patient-centric care. Anticipating better tools for implementing personalized medicine, it has developed a patient-centric approach to radiology that is greatly increasing the interaction between radiologists and their patients. In this way, radiologists will no longer be invisible, behind-the-scenes, contributors to their patients, but will be front and center members of their patients' health care teams.
The Department is made up of five primary research divisions with each providing specific areas of focus but all collaborating in a highly interdisciplinary environment. These five Divisions (with year established) are:
Stanford Radiology has been among the top ten NIH-funded radiology departments each year since 2005. An excellent team, including faculty, staff, and trainees, excels at maintaining Stanford Radiology as a strong academic leader with recognized excellence in clinical and basic research.
