The Department of Neurology in the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University is establishing a formal neurohospitalist program in July 2022. Considered a flagship research institution and destination academic medical center for central Long Island, Stony Brook University is seeking a new Division Director of Neurohospital Medicine to lead this critical and dynamic program.

The Neurohospitalist Division Director will oversee a division consisting of three full-time faculty and multiple advanced practice providers.  Division faculty manage a broad range of neurologic and medical conditions with complimentary subspecialty training in other inpatient-oriented subspecialties, such as epilepsy, stroke, neuroimmunology, and critical care.  He/she will liaise with the Section Chiefs of Vascular Neurology, Neurocritical Care, Epilepsy, and leadership from the Department of Emergency Medicine to manage and enhance quality standards of the inpatient and consultative service lines. 

In addition, Division Chief and faculty will collaborate on initiatives that contribute to the overall mission of the division, department, and institution by improving quality metrics, safety, patient satisfaction, and length of stay. Faculty should also develop and deliver high-quality instruction and clinical oversight to our dedicated team of advanced practice providers and trainees in our fellowship, residency, and clerkship programs. Faculty within this division will have clinical and academic interests that promote the overall mission of this division and the department (e.g., quality measurement/improvement, hospital operations, patient-centered care, or resident/student education).

Opportunity Highlights

  • Place your professional stamp on this new Neurohospitalist program in a top-ranked Neuroscience institute
  • Establish new models of care to include quality metrics, safety, patient satisfaction, and length of stay measures
  • Opportunity to create new educational programs specific to the Neurohospital space

  • Faculty positions available that offer significant protected time for research and subspecialty development
