Location: Stony Brook, New York



Open Date: Jul 21, 2022



Deadline: Oct 21, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time





The Department of Neurology in the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University seeks faculty candidates to establish a new Behavioral Neurology Outpatient Practice. Our faculty currently lead several nationally recognized, highly regarded outpatient subspecialty centers in Neuromuscular Medicine, Neuroimmunology, Epilepsy, and Movement Disorders. Ancillary services include MRI/PET capabilities, EEG, EMG/ NCV, and infusion therapy.


The Behavioral Neurology Group, consisting of neurologists and advanced practice providers, will serve as the hub for new patient referrals and long-term management of behavioral neurology patients. In collaboration with faculty from Geriatric Psychiatry, our behavioral neurologists will round out the multidisciplinary team that comprises the Stony Brook Center of Excellence for Alzheimer's Disease (CEAD). Initially funded in 2016, the CEAD is a state-funded initiative that provides comprehensive medical services for diagnosing and treating individuals living with AD and other dementias. Paired with the existing research infrastructure available through the Neurosciences Institute, including a world-class positron emission tomography core (PET), Stony Brook offers unparalleled opportunities to conduct cutting-edge research and recruit patients for various investigator initiated and industry-sponsored research trials.


Work in a beautiful, newly built multi-subspecialty practice location and enjoy a collegial and supportive environment with access to specialists across the continuum of neurological care.


Stony Brook is a 624-bed tertiary care facility with a catchment area of 1.5 M residents. It is home to the only Comprehensive Stroke Center, Level IV Epilepsy Center, 20-bed Neurological Critical Care Unit (NCCU), and Level I trauma center in Suffolk County. The vascular neurology team and interventionalists handle on-site support for inpatient stroke alerts (including the ED). The Division of Neurohospital Medicine serves as the hub of these inpatient and consultative services and supports a team of neuroscience-trained advanced practice providers.


Responsibilities include:


Diagnosis and management of Behavioral Neurology patients.


Participation in the General Neurology inpatient and consult services with limited weekend and overnight call responsibility.


Supervision of neurology residents and medical students.


Support efforts towards community engagement and education.


Expansion of outpatient efforts on the east end of Long Island.


This represents an exciting opportunity for general neurologists interested in building an outpatient practice at the region's premier academic medical center. Candidates will have the opportunity to develop innovative clinical, educational, and research programs to suit their unique academic interests. Faculty can also take advantage of an exceptional retirement plan offered through the SUNY403(b) and NYS Deferred Compensation Plans.




Required Qualifications:  MD degree or equivalent.  Eligibility for New York State licensure.  Completion of an accredited Neurology residency program.  Board Certified/Board Eligible in Neurology.  Strong interest in an academic career.  


Preferred Qualifications:  Experience working in a high volume Neurology outpatient practice.  Comfortable covering general neurology inpatient and consult services.
