The Breast Imaging division at Yale is a nationally recognized team of academic radiologists who provide comprehensive, progressive multidisciplinary breast care. We are proud to be a part of Yale New Haven Health, an academic health system that extends throughout Connecticut and beyond.
As part of our unprecedented growth, we are restructuring our leadership teams to better serve our various missions. We are now seeking an experienced breast imaging specialist to lead the service as the Division Chief for Breast Imaging at the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging. In this pivotal role, the postholder will be charged with taking the tradition of academic breast imaging excellence at Yale to the next level. A focus on coordinating high quality clinical breast imaging operations throughout multiple sites will be required and will be supported by two new regional section chief positions. As early pioneers of digital breast tomosynthesis, our radiologists are innovative leaders in the field and extending this national academic reputation into new areas of excellence will be of critical importance. With a flourishing breast imaging fellowship and one of the largest radiology residencies in the country, being able to ensure that our trainees are provided with the skills needed to be the next generation of imaging leaders will be essential.
