The Division of Neurology, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) are actively seeking neurologists with training in child neurology as full-time faculty members.
Division of Neurology:
The Division of Neurology is part of the Neurosciences Service Line (the Neurological Institute) which has been highlighted as a key service line by the hospital. The Division of Neurology is currently undergoing rapid expansion with the development of comprehensive clinical general and sub-specialty child neurology programs as well as enhancement of its research portfolio. A brand-new integrated clinic space for the Divisions of Neurology and Neurosurgery opened in the Spring of 2021. The goal of the Neurologic Institute is to offer comprehensive and integrated neurologic services in a patient-centered environment. As we enter the next phase of growth in the Southern California market and beyond, we are looking for new faculty members to join our team in various specialties.
CHLA is a busy urban teaching hospital with a diverse patient population. There is a very active outpatient neurology clinic with subspecialty programs in neuromuscular disorders (MDA), epilepsy (including epilepsy surgery, VNS and ketogenic diet), movement disorders (including deep brain stimulation and baclofen pump), neuro-intensive care, pediatric stroke, neurocutaneous disorders and demyelinating disorders. Our faculty currently provide outpatient clinical services to CHLA main campus and five satellite clinic locations within the greater Los Angeles area. The division ACGME-approved child neurology residency program accepts three child neurology residents annually and operates in collaboration with the KSOM LAC + USC/University Hospital. Furthermore, there is ongoing clinical research within our general child neurology and subspecialty programs.
We are rapidly growing our existing key subspecialities as well as developing new subspecialties in the following areas:
Actively seeking an epileptologist as a full-time faculty member for the position of Assistant/Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology and Pediatrics. Our considerable clinical and neurophysiologic resources include four pediatric board-certified epileptologists with a busy epilepsy surgery program offering ECoG-guided resections, phase II studies with implanted grids/strips and depths, stereo-EEG, EEG source localization and minimally invasive laser ablation. CHLA has an active outpatient EEG lab, a dedicated 6-bed pediatric EMU, wired video EEG playroom and neuro-critical care EEG monitoring service. Our Comprehensive Epilepsy Program includes a spectrum of multi-disciplinary Epilepsy Surgery, Ketogenic Diet Therapy, Epilepsy Genetics and New Onset Seizure Clinics. The CHLA Center for Personalized Medicine has a strong relationship with our epilepsy team and all testing for epilepsy genetic syndromes can be performed in-house with support from affiliated genetic counselors. In addition, the Division of Neurology has an ACGME-approved pediatric epilepsy fellowship program which accepts two fellows annually. Experience with CURRY software, stereoelectroencephalography and transcranial magnetic stimulation preferred. Please apply using the following link: Epileptologist.
The division is actively seeking a neurologist with training in child neurology as a full-time faculty member for the position of Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics. The academic mission for the division is to build a cutting-edge academic infrastructure within our comprehensive care model that would foster the training of future physician scientists while also ensuring that our research studies include the diverse patient communities of CHLA. The division is recruiting a research-focused faculty to perform cutting-edge research and contribute towards the division’s growing research portfolio. Please apply using the following link: Research Scientist.
Looking to recruit a motivated child neurologist with an interest in inpatient neurology as a full-time faculty member for the position of Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics to help expand our inpatient program. The position will entail involvement in inpatient general neurology service with weeknight and weekend call, as well as in an ambulatory setting. Unless applicant is pediatric neurocritical care trained, no neurocritical care coverage will be required. For this position, someone who has completed additional fellowship training in pediatric neurocritical care or vascular neurology will be given preference. Individuals without fellowship training with a strong interest in inpatient neurology are also encouraged to apply. Please apply using the following link: Neurohospitalist.
Actively seeking a neurologist with training in neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) as a full-time faculty member for the position of Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology and Pediatrics. CHLA has a long history of clinical programs for children with NDD’s, housed mostly in behavioral health and developmental pediatrics, providing both assessment and treatment options. These clinics are unique in the LA area in that they assess and care for children regardless of insurance status. The division plans to establish a multidisciplinary program in NDD’s that will integrate with and complement these clinics in behavioral health and developmental pediatrics. We will focus on patients with comorbid neurological conditions, genetic syndromes, and more severe intellectual and developmental disabilities. This NDD program also will serve as a platform for clinical trials, registries, and research studies focused on understanding cause, early prediction, trajectory, and outcomes in NDDs. The CHLA Center for Personalized Medicine has a strong relationship with our neurology division, and all genetic testing for NDDs can be performed in-house with support from affiliated genetic counselors. Completed NDD fellowship preferred. Please apply using the following link: Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
The division is actively seeking a general child neurologist with training in child neurology as a full-time faculty member for the position of Assistant/Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology and Pediatrics. This position could be located at the CHLA main campus and could also have presence at one or multiple teaching clinic locations – Santa Monica, South Bay, Arcadia, Encino, Valencia. Please apply using the following link: General Neurologist.
Academic appointment through the Keck School of Medicine of USC is available at a level appropriate to training and experience. CHLA and USC strongly values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
CHLA and USC are equal opportunity, affirmative action employers. The division greatly values diversity and is committed to building a vibrant and culturally diverse community of faculty that best reflects the patients and families that we serve. Individuals from underrepresented groups in medicine are especially encouraged to apply.
