BU has a long tradition of excellence in neurology and neuroscience, particularly in the field of Vascular Neurology.

We also have many active clinical research studies, including in the acute/thrombecomty setting, the ICU setting and the inpatient and outpatient settings. We boast a strong neurointerventional service, led by a vascular neurologist, but also comprised of a neurosurgeon and interventional radiologist. We are a Comprehensive Stroke Center with a very busy and interesting volume, and strong relationships with nearby referring hospitals. It is an exciting time to be at BUSM, as our staff and resources are expanding rapidly, and with a supportive hospital administration to grow our population of patients in need of cerebrovascular care.
The Stroke Division is strongly integrated with the other divisions in the Department of Neurology at BMC, including Neuro-infectious Disease, Neurocritical Care, Epilepsy, Pain and General Neurology. BMC has also achieved and maintained Comprehensive Stroke Center certification from the Joint Commission in 2018.
The position offers an opportunity for program leadership and development. Salary structure and compensation plan is competitive for academic Stroke positions in the Northeast.
