The Department of Neurology at Michigan State University is placed to announce its expansion. We seek BC/BE candidates with interest and fellowship-trained in the area of Behavioral or Geriatric Neurology. The position is ideal for an individual who would like a classic academic physician position, with elements of patient care, clinical trials engagement, student and resident education and a strongly supportive environment for initiating or continuing mentored clinical research.
The individual would be joining a dynamic and emerging team of clinicians and investigators both within the Department and across multiple disciplines at MSU including Biomedical Engineering, Radiology, Epidemiology and the Neuroscience Program. The hiring Division, Cognitive and Geriatric Neurology (CoGeNT), is led by Andrea Bozoki MD, and consists of a Nurse Practitioner, an R.N. a study coordinator and a study rater. The clinic sees over 1400 visits a year, with a 3-4 month wait list for new patients.
