A university health system in central Connecticut is excited to welcome a new Division Chief of Neuromuscular Service. Join a collegial Department of Neurology with over 20 providers and report directly to the Chair of Neurology. Candidates with a minimum of 5 years’ experience and qualifications for initial appointment at Associate Professor level or above are preferred.
The successful candidate will serve as Neuromuscular/EMG Division Chief and will lead the division in its clinical and educational responsibilities. In addition to having a clinical practice in primarily Neuromuscular Medicine/EMG, the new Chief will organize and direct other onsite neuromuscular faculty in the treatment of a variety of peripheral nerve and muscle disorders. The ideal candidate will be Neurology and Neuromuscular Fellowship-trained and eager to participate in a multispecialty group practice that provides patient-centered care rooted in evidence-based medicine. Expertise and training in EMG and nerve conduction studies, as well as experience and interest in evoked potential interpretation, botulinum neurotoxin or nerve block injection are highly desirable. An autonomic nerve facility is available for those with interest and training in this area. There is also the opportunity to develop multidisciplinary clinics for ALS and/or muscular dystrophy in collaboration with the ALSA and MDA, as well as clinical and/or research interests in myasthenia gravis, neuropathy and muscle diseases. Research opportunities abound with a strong departmental focus on neuroinflammation and the availability of Jackson Laboratories on campus for collaboration in genetics research.
Additionally, the new Chief will be responsible for overseeing the neuromuscular training of neurology residents and rotating residents in physical medicine and rehabilitation, as well as the Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship, a one-year program with one fellow per year training in the clinical diagnosis, management, and pathology of neuromuscular disorders.
