University of Southern California
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 pediatric epileptologists 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 and academic portfolio. A brand-new 23,000 sq. feet integrated outpatient center 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 to recruit additional faculty members to join our team.
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, epilepsy, movement disorders, neuro-intensive care, pediatric stroke, neurocutaneous disorders, demyelinating disorders, and neurodevelopmental 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.
Comprehensive Epilepsy Program
We are rapidly growing our Comprehensive Epilepsy Program and are actively seeking epileptologists to join as full-time faculty members. The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center has Level 4 certification—the highest afforded—from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers. Our current pediatric epileptologists are double Board-certified in neurology and epilepsy, with specialty training in pediatric seizure disorders. We have 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.
