About Vidant Cancer Care
Because we believe in life without cancer. Vidant Health has a bold vision. We will work to prevent the incidence of cancer whenever possible, diagnose the disease in its earliest stages and deliver world-class outpatient and inpatient care close to home for cancer patients in our region.
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.
It is the goal of Vidant Health and its entities to employ the most qualified individual who best matches the requirements for the vacant position.
Offers of employment are subject to successful completion of all pre-employment screenings, which may include an occupational health screening, criminal record check, education, reference, and licensure verification.
