Employment Profile

For a period of approximately 31 years, from the completion of my radiology residency in 1958 until my retirement as a Professor of Radiology at The University of Texas Health Science  Center, San Antonio, in September, 1989, I worked full time as a general diagnostic radiologist in teaching hospitals. Since 1972 I have been particularly interested in the radiological diagnosis of breast cancer. A summary of this period of my professional experience follows:

  • SEE ATTACHED CURRICULUM VITAE
  • LOCUM TENENS RADIOLOGICAL EXPERIENCE

From the time that I retired in September, 1989, until mid-1990, I worked at home as a “House Husband”. I decided, however, in the mid-1990, to “re-trend” as a general diagnostic radiologist. Since mid-1990 until August, 1994, I worked on a temporary basis as a Locum Tenen Radiologist, generally in hospitals or clinics in the smaller towns of Texas and Southern California. The time periods have varied from a few consecutive days to a few consecutive months. I have organized the summary of this Locum Tenen experience on a chronological basis of first time temporary employment at the Locum site. I have served at two-three different times at a particular locum site. The summary outline will include:

The time of first employment, The Geographic location, the name of the particular clinical entity, and the principal radiologist responsible for my employment.
