The Department of Neurological Sciences at Rush University Medical Center is seeking an Epilepsy physician to join its Rush Epilepsy Center.
The Epilepsy Center has a multidisciplinary team that includes epileptologists, neuropsychologists, physiologists, pediatric and adult neurosurgeons, clinical nurse specialists and social workers. The program offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services, and provides patients with a full range of medical and surgical treatment options, including investigative therapies and approaches that are not widely available. Patients who require inpatient treatment receive care on a specialized neurological unit with staff specifically trained in neurosurgical and neurological care. Six beds are specifically used for video EEG.
Qualified candidates must be graduates from an ACGME-accredited Neurology residency and have completed fellowship training in Epilepsy and/or Clinical Neurophysiology. Candidates must be board certified or board eligible in Neurology. Additional certification by the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology is desirable. Qualified candidates will be eligible for faculty appointment at the Assistant Professor level or higher. Teaching epilepsy fellows, neurology residents and medical students and participating in house staff education is also an expectation.
