We seek a board-certified neurologist who is fellowship trained in neurocritical care for the Illinois Neurological Institute at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL. As part of the larger team of Inpatient Neuroscientists, the neurointensivist would be expected to cover various services – neurocritical care, stroke, general neurology, consult neurology, and teleneurology. As these other services would be shared with inpatient dedicated neurologists, the coverage schedule for the neurointensivist would favor the neurocritical care rotation. This is a full-time, salary-supported position. You will serve as a staff neurointensivist and will be responsible for providing primary medical management of patients within the unit, as well as oversight and collaboration with other practitioners who provide care in the unit. You will additionally participate in neurocritical care practice efficiencies, quality improvement programs, and educational activities for medical students, residents, nurses, and allied health professionals who provide care in the neurocritical care areas. There is a clear expectation that you will be engaged in academic scholarly activities to include clinical research, curriculum development, and/or other editorial or primary medical authorship. As part of our team, you’ll be given a faculty appointment with the University of Illinois College of Medicine which includes the opportunity to form a direct relationship with our residents and fellows. We have 16 neurology and 11 neurosurgery residents in our ACGME accredited programs. In 2016, our service line will also include a vascular fellow, as well as a neuro-radiology fellow. The Illinois Neurological Institute (INI), the neurological care provider for downstate Illinois and the surrounding region, provides a full spectrum of adult and pediatric care for illnesses affecting the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerve in a distinctive environment melding research, teaching, and tertiary care medicine. Opportunity to collaborate with JUMP Trading Simulation and Education Center on site.
