Radiologist job title

A great job title typically includes a general term, level of experience and any special requirements. The general term will optimise your job title to show up in a general search for jobs of the same nature. The level of experience will help you attract the most qualified applicants by outlining the amount of responsibility and prior knowledge required. And if your position is specialised, consider including the specialisation in the job title as well. But avoid using internal titles, abbreviations or acronyms to make sure people understand what your job posting is before clicking.

    Chief Radiography Technologist
    Radiographer

Radiologist job summary

A great job description starts with a compelling summary of the position and its role within your company. Your summary should provide an overview of your company and expectations for the position. Outline the types of activities and responsibilities required for the job so job seekers can determine if they are qualified, or if the job is a good fit.

Example of a Radiologist job summary

We are a county hospital looking for a radiologist to assist our staff with patient imaging. You will educate the patients and their families on how they should prepare for each procedure, monitor patient condition during the tests, configure the equipment to produce quality images and consult with other medical professionals during the diagnostic process. The ideal candidate has four years of experience working with radiology equipment, is board-certified, has strong verbal and written communication skills and wants to make a difference by working in a fast-paced hospital. This position is full-time and offers health and dental insurance, along with a generous compensation package.

Radiologist responsibilities and duties

The responsibilities and duties section is the most important part of the job description. Here you should outline the functions this position will perform on a regular basis, how the job functions within the organisation and who the employee reports to.

Examples of Radiologist responsibilities

    Evaluate patient pain levels to determine whether they require physician intervention
    Process X-rays in a timely manner to assist physicians with the diagnostic process

Radiologist qualifications and skills

Next, outline the required and preferred skills for your position. This may include education, previous job experience, certifications and technical skills. You may also include soft skills and personality traits that you envision for a successful hire. While it may be tempting to include a long list of skills and requirements, including too many could dissuade qualified candidates from applying. Keep your list of qualifications concise, but provide enough detail with relevant keywords and terms.

Examples of Radiologist skills
