An academic medical center in the south is adding a spine focused neurosurgeon to work at their main campus medical center, as well as two general neurosurgeons at a community hospital.
The main campus spine job is an academic practice with remarkable opportunities in teaching, research, and clinical neurosurgery and applicants should have a strong interest in research, publishing, education and a desire to maintain broad-based clinical activities and skills. Deformity interests can be well accommodated.
This is the only hospital in the state designated as a Level 1 Adult Trauma Center. The hospital is a regional referral center for head trauma, spinal cord trauma, burns, and other serious conditions. Teaching opportunities include their highly successful neurosurgery residency program as well as medical students.
Walk into immediate volume as the current spine neurosurgeons have more cases than they can handle, and one of the senior neurosurgeons is slowing down. The new neurosurgeon will join as Assistant Professor or full professor, depending on experience. Call will be 5-6 days per month and shared with the orthopedic spine faculty, residents take first call.
The city is the largest city in the state with a population currently estimated in the 200,000's and a metro population over 1 million. This is an easy place to live and offers a diverse population. The area has beautiful suburbs that offer terrific schools, affordable housing and easy commutes. The average high temperature in the city is 65°; the average low is 51°. The city is centrally located in the southeast and easily accessible to major hubs in the region.
The community hospital is a Level II center located in the capital city, approximately 1.5 hours from the main campus. The new neurosurgeons will join one neurosurgeon who will be retiring in the next few years. They plan to hire two to join him and eventually hire a third and maintain a three person practice. Call will be 1 in 3. There is a senior neurosurgeon in private practice in the community who will be retiring at the end of 2018.
