About Vidant Health

Vidant Health is a regional health system serving 29 counties in eastern North Carolina. We are working every day to improve the health of the 1.4 million people we serve. Vidant Health is made up of 8 hospitals, physician practices, home health, hospice, wellness centers and other health care services. Vidant Medical Center is affiliated with the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. As a major resource for health services and education, Vidant Health strives to support local medical communities and to work with providers throughout the region to deliver quality care. Our goal is to enhance services that are available locally and to eliminate barriers involving time, distance and lack of awareness that sometimes prevent patients from receiving the care they need.

Position Summary

These professionals calibrate and set up radiation therapy equipment and position patients to ensure accurate treatments and pinpoint radiation doses to tumor areas, minimizing exposure to normal and critical surrounding structures. This work must be performed with the highest level of accuracy to achieve the expected treatment outcome.

The Radiation Therapists are accountable for maintaining daily quality assurance measures on the linear accelerators and other departmental equipment. In addition, the Radiation Therapists instruct radiation therapy students, medical physics graduate students, medical residents, and other healthcare providers on the operation of radiation therapy machines and explain and demonstrate specific procedures and techniques; and provide assistance on cancer research projects.

Since the Radiation Therapy Supervisor I classification is consolidated into the Radiation Therapist band, the department may desire to select an employee to serve as Senior/Lead Radiation Therapist to provide backup support to the Radiation Therapy Supervisor. Therefore, the Senior/Lead Radiation Therapist will work with the more complex cases and deliver the more complicated treatments and serve as an indirect supervisor to the therapists. This work will require the position to assist the supervisor in serving as the liaison between the therapists and physicians, providing day to day support and guidance to therapists, preparing work assignments, monitoring procedures, and solving problems that arise with day to day operations.
