Job Details:

Maine Medical Partners seeks a BC/BE Vascular Neurologist to join our Neurohospitalist Program as Stroke Clinic Director. The successful candidate will evaluate new patients with cerebrovascular disease, provide continuity of care for stroke patients in the clinic, participate in telestroke coverage, and enhance the multidisciplinary stroke clinic in their role as Stroke Clinical Director. There is an opportunity for an interested candidate to establish a Neurosonology lab. There is also an option for participation in inpatient hospital call coverage.

Our Neurohospitalist group currently consists of three Vascular Neurologists, a Neurocritical Care Neurologist, and three experienced specialty advance practice providers and provides 24/7 coverage for Maine Medical Center (MMC), a Comprehensive Stroke Center, and coverage for our well established telestroke program. We work closely with three endovascular specialists and enjoy a close relationship with physiatry and vascular neurosurgery. MMC is the state's leading tertiary care hospital, a Level 1 Trauma Center, and the major neurological and neurosurgical referral center for Maine and Eastern New Hampshire. MMC has 637 licensed beds and admits roughly one thousand ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke patients each year.

The Neurology Division consists of 22 physicians, including 5 Pediatric Neurologists, 9 Advanced Practice Providers, on-site MRI, and a Neurodiagnostic lab. The Neurology group has been a premier site for neurologic care in Maine since 1988. The practice works closely with the Neuroscience Institute at Maine Medical Center to further develop the Neuroscience Centers of Excellence which supports the initiatives of our Stroke, Epilepsy, Movement Disorders and Multiple Sclerosis programs. The practice includes opportunities both to teach medical students from Tufts University medical school and residents and to pursue research through the Maine Medical Center Research Institute.

The successful candidate will be employed by Maine Medical Partners (MMP), a subsidiary of Maine Medical Center and Maine's largest multi-specialty group, serving the health care needs of patients throughout Maine and Northern New England. This high quality team of more than 500 physicians and 200 advanced practice professionals provides a wide range of hospital based, primary, specialty, and sub-specialty adult and pediatric care delivered throughout a network of 30 locations across the State, acting as a regional referral network.
