Dept of Clinical SciencesAbout the Department:
Our clinical radiation oncology program has existed since the College first opened in the mid-1980’s.Essential Job Duties:
There is institutional support for having a team that includes three ACVR-RO board-certified faculty. There are now two vacancies, which means there is an incredible opportunity for our incoming radiation oncologists to re-envision and re-build the program to their liking.
We enjoy a busy and diverse caseload that is well-supported by 3 radiation oncology residents, a robust support staff (two client services representatives, one veterinary assistant, three veterinary technicians and one radiation therapist), a consulting medical physicist, and two medical dosimetrists who provide remote treatment planning support.
The radiation oncology service is located in the Randall B. Terry Jr. Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center, in Raleigh, North Carolina. The center is equipped with a strontium probe, and Varian Novalis TX (with cone beam CT, high-definition MLC, CIVCO Protura robotic 6 degrees-of-freedom treatment couch, two Varian Eclipse treatment planning workstations, and a Varian ARIA record and verify system), capable of IMRT, IGRT and stereotactic radiation therapy. The linac is currently undergoing an upgrade to include addition of VMAT (RapidArc), a third treatment planning workstation, and a software upgrade (Eclipse v18); this is scheduled to be complete by early 2024.
Radiation treatment planning is supported by a full diagnostic imaging suite, including CT and MRI. Each year, the service is responsible for primary receiving of over 300 new patient consultations, and treats over 200 new patients. The service has historically operated as a primary receiving service that works closely with colleagues in Medical Oncology (four faculty, four residents and one intern) and Soft Tissue/Oncologic Surgery (four faculty, five residents, and one intern).
Philanthropist Randall B. Terry, Jr. had a vision of a spacious and welcoming veterinary medical center that would be a national model of excellence. The goal was to ensure compassionate and leading-edge specialty health care for companion animals by surrounding a dedicated staff with advanced medical facilities and state of the art diagnostic and treatment technologies. At 110,000-square feet, the Terry Center is one of the nation’s largest veterinary hospitals. More
than 20,000 patients are diagnosed and treated annually by CVM clinicians and the Veterinary Hospital at NC State University is a major referral center for veterinarians throughout the Southeast.
With a focus on patient care, client comfort, and staff efficiency, the Terry Center is designed to help clinicians exceed client and referring veterinarian expectations for state-of-the-art specialty healthcare. Our mission is to partner with veterinarians and provide excellent and compassionate medical care; advance the veterinary profession through medical innovation and clinical research; and prepare the next generation of veterinarians.
- Oversee radiation oncology clinical case management
- Provide high-quality clinical and pre-clinical teaching
- Demonstrate research productivity through the procurement of external grant funding and the publication of peer-reviewed scientific papers
- Participate in college and departmental committees.
Selected applicants can be considered for either a TENURE TRACK or PROFESSIONAL/CLINICAL TRACK position.
The difference is that faculty in professional/clinical track positions spend a majority of their time in the clinic, with only a relatively small proportion of their time dedicated to research. By contrast, faculty in tenure track positions are expected to develop and/or run an independent research program, with a focus in clinical, translational, and/or basic research in the cancer and/or radiation-related sciences.
Collaborative research opportunities exist within the NC State University Comparative Medicine Institute, as well as with neighboring institutions includingUNCChapel Hill, Duke University, and Wake Forest University.
Often, our faculty become eligible for associate membership in these NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers. Notably, the NC State Radiation Oncology team actively participates in a variety of clinical trials, and we are fortunate in that clinical research efforts are well-supported by our Clinical Studies Core, which provides assistance in study design,
coordination and implementation.
