About the position

You must have a mind for close collaboration, as the organisation of the Breast Clinic is structured on the basis of an interdisciplinary radiological element on the one hand, and an interdisciplinary breast surgical element on the other. This concept facilitates the option of very swift and “smooth” care pathways. The clinic employs a mammo coordinator who is in charge of the scheduling of the individual cancer assessment processes.

In addition to the actual diagnostic imaging of clinical mammography and associated intervention as well as breast MRIs, the position will also involve the conduction of MDT conferences.

The mammography unit currently employs 3.5 fulltime mammography radiologists, and this group is expected to be expanded to a total of 5 radiologists in all.

At the Breast Clinic, applicants with research interests will have fine opportunities with access to considerable patient material.

Currently, the 1,5T Siemens scanner is applied in approximately 15 weekly MRI mammographies. The screening units in Viborg, Holstebro and Randers have identical Siemens Mammomats.

We carry out all intervention types within conventional mammography diagnostics.

In 2019, the mammography department expects to produce approximately 10,000 examinations/year.

We provide flexible work planning with e.g. long days followed by compensational days off as well as the opportunity of maintaining attachment to ordinary radiological duties, should this be desired. Part-time employment is also a feasibility.

We offer:

  • Appointment in a dynamic department in constant technological and organisational development with plenty of opportunities for being professionally challenged, as well as development within interest and responsibility areas
  • A highly professional environment with occupational sparring with the department’s experienced medical staff as well as collaborative specialist areas
  • Fine opportunities for competence development and supplementary training

  • The department has access to a research-responsible engineer, and Regional Hospital Viborg commands an enthusiastic scientific special library and Journal Club, thus facilitating excellent opportunities for mono as well as interdisciplinary research.

The department operates with a duty roster comprising attendance duty (7-shift roster schedule) and a formalised on-call roster with attendance from home, currently operated on the basis of a 6-shift roster schedule, albeit targeted towards an 8-shift roster.

The department participates in further medical training at intro and HU levels and in the Aarhus University medical education of medical students.
