The mission of the Program is to expand and synergize translational stroke research to transform stroke care across the continuum within the context of an academic Learning Health System (aLHS). The Stroke programs will specifically address health equity and diversity across the lifespan. We aim to recruit an MD with direct clinical knowledge of stroke care, billing, etc. to serve as a Program Director for Transformative Stroke Care. Strong candidates will have a track record of national leadership in clinical data research, experience in alternative scientific models, use of a wide range of data sources and data analysis techniques (such as registry-based trials and causal estimation methods), medical decision making, success in grant writing and awards, and be particularly familiar with clinical science priorities in stroke and, more broadly, neuroscience disorders in general. Some experience in healthcare economic analyses, particularly those examining the combined clinical and economic outcomes of care, is preferred given the potential to identify opportunities related to value-based care models.
The Director will be expected to leverage collaborations with investigators across the entire health system, disciplines, and national networks. Over the long-term, the Director will be expected to develop an enterprise-wide stroke registry, biobank, state-wide trial network, early transport protocols, processes to improve care access and delivery and processes to improve outcomes.
