RADIATION ONCOLOGIST with SUBSPECIALIZATION in HDR BRACHYTHERAPY: The Permanente Medical Group (TPMG) is recruiting for a Radiation Oncologist with significant HDR brachytherapy experience to start at our Santa Clara Radiation Oncology Center (ROC) in 2017 where we currently have 2 Brachytherapy subspecialists. The Radiation Oncologist will later transfer to our Dublin (East Bay) ROC which is scheduled to open in Spring 2019 while still performing some interstitial cases at Santa Clara. The position will involve some External RT in addition to HDR brachytherapy. The Dublin ROC will be part of a large, 3-story multispecialty medical office building. It will have 4 Linac vaults and a dedicated HDR suite. The center will be equipped with 2 matched Varian Truebeam Linacs and 2 matched Varian Truebeam STX Linacs (both with HD-MLC, 6-DOF couches, and 1 with ExacTrac), and a wide bore CT Simulator. The department will also be equipped with a Varisource afterloader, Varian Brachyvision, Eclipse RTP, Aria R&V, and Mimvista for image fusion and deformation. In addition to the Brachytherapy subspecialist, the department will have 5 other Radiation Oncologists. The department will be staffed by 4 physicists, 4 dosimetrists, 4 RNs, 3 MAs, 12 RTTs, 1 Dietitian, 1 Social Worker, and an IT/Systems Administrator.
The Santa Clara ROC is the main center for HDR Brachytherapy for KP patients in Northern California. We currently treat 350 HDR cases/year (~70% interstitial) – primarily Prostate and Gynecologic cancers. The Dublin ROC will become the 6th KP ROC in Northern California, and the 2nd KP ROC to offer interstitial HDR brachytherapy. Our centers are APEX accredited.
Within 2 years of opening, we anticipate the Dublin ROC will be treating 1000 external RT courses, 300-500 SBRT/SRS courses, 50-100 HDR Brachytherapy courses per year.
START DATE is anticipated to be in the 2nd half of 2017 - Summer-Fall of 2017.
