The University of Florida Department of Neurology is seeking a Neuromuscular physician to join a growing neuromuscular division and be part of a state-of-the-art Neuromuscular program including comprehensive clinical care, research, and education with an ACGME approved neuromuscular fellowship.
We have a freestanding Neuromedicine Hospital, an Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility, and multi-disciplinary outpatient clinics with an infrastructure and resources for excellent clinical care. The Neuromuscular clinics including ALS, MDA, Myasthenia Gravis, and CMT focused clinics are located at the Fixel Institute with immediate access to neuro-rehab trained physical therapy, occupational therapy, sleep and swallow therapists, dietician, clinical geneticists, neuropsychologists, and social work. We have active collaborations with Neurosurgery, Pain Medicine, Pulmonology, Cardiology and the sleep center for the needs of neuromuscular patients. Many basic and clinical UF laboratories collaborate with us to deliver cutting edge research in genetics, ALS, myotonic dystrophy and other repeat disorders, motor physiology, respiratory function, and muscle imaging research. Collaborations also exist with the Powell Gene therapy center and the center for neurogentics which are actively engaged in therapy of neuromuscular disorders.
Our mission is to develop a neuromuscular clinical care system that incorporates cutting age diagnostics, therapeutics, and cutting edge translational research in a patient centered approach.
