Better Health For All
County of Santa Clara Health System (CSCHS), a large public teaching healthcare system, affiliated with Stanford University School of Medicine, is seeking a BC/BE radiation oncologist physician, to join our dynamic practice in our Department of Radiation Oncology.
We offer the unparalleled opportunity to gain the long-term personal and professional satisfaction of serving our patients and our diverse community, while teaching the next generation of health care providers, in one of the best places to live in the United States.
About the organization
County of Santa Clara Health System (CSCHS) is the second-largest County-owned health and hospital system in California and is committed to improving the health of the 1.9 million people of Santa Clara County. CSCHS is comprised of three hospitals: Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC - a 731-bed central hospital), O’Connor Hospital (OCH - 358 licensed beds), and Saint Louise Regional Hospital (SLRH – 93 licensed beds); in addition CSCHS includes a large primary care network comprised of eleven health centers throughout the County, several urgent care clinics, a broad-range of specialty services in our Valley Specialty Center, comprehensive dental services, a large behavioral health department, public health, EMS, and Valley Health Plan.
SCVMC itself hosts four residency and one fellowship training programs and partners with Stanford University Medical Center for the training of residents and fellows in many Stanford-based specialties. SCVMC also features a Level 1 Trauma Center, Level 2 Pediatric Trauma Center, ABA verified Burn Center, Primary Stroke Center, and a nationally recognized CARF-accredited Rehabilitation Center. Owing to its geographic location and specialty offerings, SCVMC not only serves the County, but also the larger region.
Providers in our health system also have the opportunity to use our integrated electronic health record (Epic), which brings together system-wide patient information. The Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) recognized SCVMC for achieving its highest level of success (Stage 7), based on our continuous innovation and optimization of our inpatient and outpatient EHR.
About the community
CSCHS is located in San Jose, California in the heart of Silicon Valley, offering a diverse choice of cultural, recreational, and lifestyle opportunities. Our physicians live in a range of communities, including urban (e.g., San Francisco), university (e.g., Palo Alto), high tech (e.g., many cities of Silicon Valley), mountain (e.g., Los Gatos), beach (e.g. Santa Cruz), and rural/agricultural (e.g., Morgan Hill and Gilroy). Situated in one of the most desirable regions of the country – only 45 minutes from the Monterey Bay and three hours from the Sierra Nevada – our physicians enjoy a very high quality of life.
About the Department
The department includes two vaults equipped with a Varian TrueBeam and a Varian Trilogy (the latter to be replaced in 2024); a GE Lightspeed RT CT simulator (upgrade planned for 2024); on-site PET/CT simulation; and advanced treatment technologies including SABR/SBRT, SRS, respiratory motion management, and HDR brachytherapy for gynecologic patients.
The team includes three radiation oncologists, two medical physicists, a dosimetrist, six radiation therapists, and a clinic team of three nurses, one medical assistant, a nurse navigator, and a nurse practitioner. The practice has applied for APEx accreditation and expects to achieve accreditation this summer. We serve as a training site for the Stanford Radiation Oncology residency program. There are also opportunities for resident and medical student teaching through our hospital’s internal residency training programs and established collaboration with Stanford School of Medicine.
The department is a part of the Sobrato Cancer Center at SCVMC. Co-located within the Cancer Center are Medical Oncology, GYN oncology, Palliative Care, Cancer Genetics, and Specialty Pharmacy colleagues, as well as a 21-chair infusion center with an on-site infusion pharmacy. Supportive services on-site include medical social workers, dieticians, a psychologist, and additional oncology nurse navigators. The department enjoys excellent collaboration with a wide range of medical specialists, diagnostic and interventional radiologists, surgical subspecialties (breast surgery, thoracic surgery, ENT, orthopedic oncology, among others), and a strong internal network of primary care physicians.
