The Department of Neurology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center seeks a full-time neurologist specialized in the area of clinical neuroimmunology/multiple sclerosis. Under the supervision of the Multiple Sclerosis Center’s medical director, the neurologist will be responsible for the diagnosis and management of neuroimmunological conditions affecting primarily the central nervous system. Working within a team that currently includes four adult neurologists and one pediatric neurologist that have completed specialty training in this domain, the new neurologist will have a primarily outpatient practice that also includes occasionally staffing an inpatient consultation performed by one of the fellows. There is also an annual inpatient service time required by the department. The position includes working with medical students, neurology residents, the two clinical neuroimmunology fellows, and a nurse practitioners that extend the practice’s efforts. While multiple sclerosis remains the diagnosis for most of the patients seen at our Center, we evaluate and manage a wide range of conditions captured by the “autoimmune neurology” rubric, including emerging complications of immunotherapy, and cases of transverse myelitis of various origins.
Outstanding training in clinical neurology and subspecialty expertise in multiple sclerosis and clinical neurimmunology are required. We are looking for an exceptional candidate with strong communication and organizational skills who will become a leader in her or his chosen area of focus, whether that is teaching, clinical care, or clinical/translational research. There are many different opportunities for career development and promotion in our dynamic Multiple Sclerosis and its affiliated Center for Translational & Computational Neuroimmunology, working collaboratively with our translational, computational and basic faculty.
Practice sites include Northern New Jersey and Westchester County, NY.
Minimum Degree Required:
M.D. or D.O.
