This is an exceptional opportunity to join our team of neurointensivists, neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists and other experienced physicians from related specialties.

In sum, neurointensivists cover 1 week blocks of primary Neuro-ICU, consultation service, and Virtual NeuroICU. Stroke telemedicine coverage opportunities exist but are considered optional.
