Cardiothoracic Radiologist Opportunity Description
UMass Memorial Medical Center (UMMMC), the clinical partner of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, is seeking an ABR-certified/eligible radiologist with fellowship training in Cardiovascular and/or Thoracic Radiology to join the nationally recognized Division of Cardiothoracic Imaging in the Department of Radiology.
The Department of Radiology performs over 900,000 studies per year, across five hospitals and an outpatient imaging center in central Massachusetts.

UMass Radiology offers the latest imaging technology: seven (7) MRIs, seven (7) CTs, including a Siemens Definition Flash CT and two (2) new Siemens 128 Definition Edge CTs.
