The Department of Neurology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) invites applications for a faculty position as a neurohospitalist in the Division of Inpatient General Neurology. The division has 3 full-effort members and 17 part-effort members staffing the inpatient, consult, and emergency neurology services at the adult hospital. Candidates must be board certified or eligible by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. We welcome candidates for full-effort hospital neurology as well as those interested in split effort between outpatient General Neurology and Inpatient Hospital Neurology. Subspecialty-trained candidates are highly valued for hospital work and are also encouraged to apply. Interested clinicians are also welcomed to participate in our extensive emergency and critical care Teleneurology services, which are provided to dozens of regional hospitals from the clinician’s home.
The VUMC adult hospital is a large academic medical center, has 1,019 beds, and is the principal teaching facility for the School of Medicine at Vanderbilt University. VUMC is a Comprehensive Stroke Center, Level 1 Trauma Center, Burn Center, and has busy services in advanced cardiac care, heart and other transplants, and oncologic care including stem cell transplant. The inpatient general neurology service works closely with our neurosurgical colleagues who have brisk practices in vascular, tumor, and functional neurosurgery, among others. Neurology and Neurosurgery share a 24 bed Neuro ICU and 12 bed Neuro-stepdown unit. We have 2 dedicated CT suites in the ED with state-of-the-art technology for rapid stroke and trauma evaluation. There are 4 MRIs in the adult hospital, 3 of which are run 24 hours/day.
We serve a large area with 3 helipads, 9 helicopters, and a fixed wing medical transport. We partner with the Psychiatry team who also provides dedicated coverage in the ED as well as floor consults and an adjacent Psychiatric hospital.
The successful candidate will be joining the adult neurology department and must have a longstanding commitment to the care of people with neurologic disorders and educating the next generation of neurologists. Interested candidates should submit a C.V. and a brief statement of interest to:
