Comprehensive, integrated, physician-led health system in the Northeast seeks a fellowship-trained skull base neurosurgeon to join its expanding academic neuroscience program. The new skull base neurosurgeon can be in practice or a new graduate. They have the opportunity to develop any niche in skull base.
This is an academic position with primary practice focus at a highly-rated, growing, level II, teaching hospital with an opportunity to work with medical students and neurosurgery residents and enjoy tremendous collaborative research potential and benefit from significant volumes. While the new neurosurgeon will need skull base training, they can also supplement with other cranial cases including primary brain tumors and radiosurgery. There is potential to be doing nearly 100% cranial cases in about a year.
