University of Illinois

The University of Illinois Veterinary Teaching Hospital is seeking radiologists for in-person locum service. Flexible dates are available extending from mid-November through mid-February with a minimum one-week commitment. Applicants must hold a DVM or equivalent and be a Diplomate of ACVR or ECVDI or be board-eligible. No state licensing is required.

Duties include:
– Provide consultation on in-house radiology, CT, MRI, and ultrasound cases for small animal and exotics services. Large animal consultation and image interpretation is not required.
– Generate reports for small animal cases as time allows. Any unreported cases will be sent out for off-site interpretation.
– After hours emergency responsibilities are not required.

The Veterinary Teaching Hospital houses a 3T Siemens MRI, 128 slice Siemens CT scanner, nuclear scintigraphy, fluoroscopy, a Toshiba Aplio 700 ultrasound, and three digital radiology suites. The diagnostic imaging service utilizes Carestream Vue PACS and is supported by 7 radiology technologists, two of whom also serve as service coordinators. Ultrasound image acquisition is provided by our highly skilled technologists for all exams.

The University of Illinois is in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, approximately two hours from the cities of Chicago and Indianapolis. Direct flights from the regional airport are available to Chicago, Dallas, and Charlotte.

Onsite locum
A lump sum payment of $6,000/week will be paid for your clinical services. Parking, travel expenses (airfare/mileage), and hotel accommodations will be provided. Veterinary licensure in Illinois is not required while working in the VTH. Because a locum position is not considered an employee by the University, neither medical benefits, nor Workman’s Comp coverage are available. As of January 1, 2017, in addition to your stipend, one time per year we will provide you with $300 to obtain your own professional liability insurance. Please bring copies of your veterinary license (it does not have to be an Illinois license) and your professional liability insurance. In addition, you will be required to document eligibility for employment as required by the Immigration and Reform and Control Act of 1986 on or before your first day of work.

Remote locum
A lump sum payment of $5,000/week will be paid for your clinical services. Expected hours of coverage are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm CST. Because a locum position is not considered an employee by the University neither medical benefits, nor Workman’s Comp coverage are available. In addition, you will be required to document eligibility for employment as required by the Immigration and Reform and Control Act of 1986 on or before your first day of work.
