Your home academic department may be within the Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences or the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences and the appointment of teaching, clinical and research distribution is flexible to align with your professional goals and interests. Collaborative research is supported but not required. As we are a small faculty unit currently, we are seeking collaborative candidates passionate about further expansion and interested in becoming an integral part of department, hospital and college advancement. The Diagnostic Imaging Service at MSU’s Veterinary Medical Center completes over 12,000 small and large animal cases a year, providing both diversity and opportunity for specialization within species or diagnostic imaging modalities. Our Imaging team is currently staffed by two part-time radiologists, a Radiology Service Manager, a PACS administrator, one MRI technologist, four veterinary technicians, 3 radiographers, 1 sonographer, and two veterinary assistants.
This service is, and will continue to be, supplemented with teleradiologist services to help manage the day-to-day caseload and provide time for teaching, research, and/or outreach avenues for on-site faculty. There is no on-call for this position and there is flexibility with the time needed to be on-site. The department houses a large bore 1.5T Siemens MRI, 64-slice GE CT, scintigraphy suite with gamma camera, GE digital Interventional Fluoroscopy suite and mobile GE C-Arm unit, 2 Canon and 1 GE ultrasound units, 2 Canon and 1 Konica small animal radiology suites, one Canon large animal radiology suite and several mobile radiography units.

The positions offer a unique opportunity to be an integral part of department function and future advancements. For a part-time appointment, we have an excellent relationship with VetCT, that provides the opportunity to combine a part-time academic appointment at Michigan State University with part-time teleradiology work at VetCT, enabling you to customize your work life balance, flexibly.
