Instructor - 29857 Faculty

Description
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Department: Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine

Job Title: Instructor/Sonographer

Position #:00806372 – Requisition #:29857

Job Summary:

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine, at the University of Colorado has two openings for faculty sonographers at the rank of Instructor. This position will provide support to the freestanding Maternal Fetal Medicine clinic, located in Downtown Denver and the CU Medicine Obstetrics and Gynecology – Central Park clinic. This position will also be cross trained to support the other freestanding Maternal Fetal Medicine clinics on an as-needed basis. This position reports directly to the MFM Practice Manager and indirectly to the Medical Directors and the Division Administrative Director.

The duties of this position include performing independent diagnostic ultrasound examinations on "high risk obstetrical" patients who will be subsequently evaluated and treated by a Maternal Fetal Medicine attending physician, preparing preliminary reports for physician review, and verifying data obtained from the ultrasound. As needed, this position may be asked to review and triage referrals alongside schedulers and MFM providers to determine urgency in scheduling. You will work cooperatively with the Medical Directors, Perinatologists, fellow Sonographers, and the administrative team to ensure high patient and referring physician satisfaction.

This position will be from Monday through Friday and is not required to cover call. Each clinic has two sonographers onsite each day. Each individual covers one room with an average of 8 patients/day. Each clinic has GE Voluson E10s and uses ViewPoint for reporting as well as EPIC for our EMR system. We follow AIUM guidelines for our ultrasound protocols and the Downtown Denver location is recognized as an AIUM accredited ultrasound practice.

CU MFM values a work culture in which our sonographers are well respected. The MFM division is comprised of a dynamic team, which includes 3 dedicated Fetal Surgeons, 21 MFM physicians, 2 Physician Assistants, 2 Genetic Counselors, 2 Diabetes Educators, 9 Sonographers, 6 Medical Assistants, and 4 dedicated schedulers.

The MFM physicians are amazing to work with. There is an ample amount of partnership between our MFM physicians and the sonographers. After each scan, the sonographer will present the case to the MFM physician and share their perspective on the patient's case. As CU MFM is part of an academic institution, a great deal of importance is placed upon teaching and ongoing education.

In addition, each sonographer receives Professional Development Funds that can be used for conferences, licensure, and ongoing training. CU MFM hosts a monthly Education Series for the clinical and nonclinical staff. In this series, MFM physicians present on different topics, protocols, and interesting ultrasound cases. CU MFM also hosts an annual fetal imaging ultrasound conference at Children's Hospital Colorado, which includes presentations from MFM physicians and MFM sonographers as well as a hands-on ultrasound training course.
