A large healthcare system in North Carolina is seeking a Medical Director of Neurology. This opening is due to exciting programmatic growth!

Applicants should be board certified and have at least 5 years of clinical experience. Candidates with subspecialty interest or fellowship training in Movement Disorder, Epilepsy, Neuromuscular, Headache, or MS would be especially welcomed, though experienced neurologists with any subspecialty interests are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will assist with the recruitment of an outpatient neurology team and provide oversight into all aspects of the development of outpatient neurology services.

The flagship hospital is a 974-bed tertiary referral center providing acute, intermediate, rehabilitation and outpatient health services to a 29-county region that is home to more than 1.4 million people. In recognition of its nursing excellence and high-quality patient care, they have been designated a Magnet® facility by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
