The Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York Presbyterian Hospital is embarking on a significant expansion of its programs in behavioral neurology and memory disorders, with the creation of a new Center for Brain Health. This new program will be housed in a newly designed facility in midtown Manhattan, with contiguous access to psychiatry and internal medicine. The new Center will contain a comprehensive state-of-the-art imaging facility, and have close collaborations with the departments of radiology, geriatric medicine, psychiatry, neurosurgery, and neuropsychology.
We are seeking a range of clinical experts from behavioral neurology and/or psychiatry, who have a strong interest in preserving brain health, and treating cognitive problems when they develop, regardless of cause. There will also be a strong emphasis on comprehensive, multidisciplinary care and treatments to improve the quality of life of all patients when they develop cognitive disorders during aging. In addition, our goal is to expand our clinical research activities, so that every patient who is not eligible for an FDA approved treatment can participate in an appropriate clinical trial. Our program already has a strong and internationally recognized advanced brain imaging institute that offers cutting-edge neuroimaging to guide our care.
The program is generously funded by philanthropy and research grants. The Center for Brain Health will be a unique service to the people who live and work in the greater New York City metropolitan area and will help to catalyze improvements in the care of memory disorders more broadly.
Behavioral neurology and/or psychiatry clinicians and physician-scientists who are interested in this program may a send a letter of interest and CV to Matthew E. Fink, MD, Louis and Gertrude Feil Professor and Chair, Department of Neurology, Weill Cornell Medicine and New York Presbyterian Hospital, email@example.com
The department is recruiting Assistant Professor to Associate Professor level for this program and depending on rank hired, Assistant Professor salary range would be $230,000 to $240,000 and Associate Professors $250,000 to $300,000.
