Epileptologist position. We are looking for a Neurologist with a one to two year fellowship in epilepsy/clinical neurophysiology. Bayfront is a level IV medical surgical epilepsy center with a three bed video-EEG monitoring unit with epilepsy trained nurses, registered EEG technologists, Pharm D, epilepsy neurosurgeon, social worker, two neuropsychologists, an interventional neuroradiologist, physician assistants, ARNP and speech language pathologists.

Bayfront is a tertiary referral center for epilepsy in southwest Florida, and is a referral hub for a network of six hospitals that are part of Bayfront Health. There are plans to start an epilepsy fellowship with an opportunity for teaching. There is also an evolving clinical drug trials program. The program is a nurturing program that fosters clinical, professional and personal development with a team of committed compassionate people whose goal is to improve the lives of people with epilepsy, educate physicians and the community and do clinical research. The position is a unique opportunity to do both community epilepsy (ie newly diagnosed epilepsy and status epilepticus in the hospital setting) and tertiary care epilepsy (video-EEG, invasive subdural EEG and functional mapping).

St Petersburg is a beautiful medium sized city that is part of the larger Tampa Bay region, and has numerous recreational, sports and cultural attractions. Furthermore, it has a low cost of living and no state income tax.
