Deadline: Feb 16, 2024 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time
The General Neurology Division of the Department of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania is expanding its services to enhance access for patients to our large regional referral practice. We seek neurologists with broad clinical skills who are interested in an academic practice combining clinical excellence in diagnosis of a broad range of challenging neurological conditions with core teaching responsibilities in the residents' ambulatory practice and other venues. Successful candidates will also have opportunities for teaching in Penn's preclinical curriculum, in outpatient conferences and in CME courses. We offer the possibility of developing components of specialty interests depending on the candidates' background in such areas as headache, neuromuscular medicine, and neuro-otology. Candidates would also participate in divisional conferences of the specialties for which they are qualified.
The Department of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Assistant Professor positions in the non-tenure academic clinician track. Applicants must have an M.D or M.D./Ph.D. degree. The successful applicants will be board certified in Neurology. Additional fellowship training in neuro-otology, behavioral neurology, neuromuscular diseases, or headache medicine is helpful, but not required.
Teaching responsibilities may include teaching medical students and residents in the outpatient clinic and instructing clinical fellows in allied specialties such as ENT, pain management, internal medicine, and family medicine. The candidate will help identify and schedule appropriate speakers and topics for the weekly general neurology group case conference and for the resident lecture series and assist with the virtual "Case of the Month" series. Opportunities to teach in the preclinical Brain and Behavior course also are provided.
Clinical responsibilities may include personal clinics at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), Pennsylvania Hospital, and/or Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and other affiliated institutional sites as well as attending responsibilities for resident clinics at HUP. Depending on a candidate's interest and expertise, opportunities exist for development of specialized clinics focusing on the areas of headache medicine, women's neurology, spinal conditions, neuro-otology, complications of cancer and cancer therapies, and somatic symptom disorder, among others. However, the bulk of clinical time will be spent in general neurology clinics. Participation in clinical trial recruitment, CME activities, and quality improvement initiatives is welcome.
We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
