New York City / Queens

The Mount Sinai Health System is recruiting for two dynamic, collaborative neurointensivists to join our current team of seven. Candidates must have completed a fellowship in Neurocritical Care and be board certified/eligible. This is a transformational opportunity for highly motivated junior faculty as well as accomplished faculty:

  1. Medical Director for the new NSICU at NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst (Elmhurst Hospital Center). The ideal candidate should have interest and experience in neurotrauma, teaching, and team-building.
  2. Clinician-Researcher. The ideal candidate should have a proven track record for research and/or grant funding.

The Neurocritical Care (NCC) division currently fully staffs and runs two Neurosciences ICUs (NSICUs): a completely new construction state of the art 18 bed unit occupying an entire floor in The Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) and a very modern 14 bed NSICU at Mount Sinai West (MSW). Our division is currently in the process of establishing a third unit in our Level 1 Trauma Center affiliate Elmhurst Hospital at NYC Health + Hospital, which is currently staffed 24/7 with Mount Sinai Neurology and Neurosurgery faculty and residents. All neurointensivists rotate among all the NSICUs.

In addition, we oversee Neurocritical Care across our entire health system, having integrated central nervous system disease-specific centers at each hospital for SAH, ICH, emergent large vessel occlusion, epilepsy, movement disorders, malignant and benign tumors, pediatric neurosurgery, trauma, and others. To ensure that time-dependent treatments are projected to sites where patients arrive, that resource-intensive treatments are focused in centers of excellence, and that our patients upon ICU discharge receive proper follow-up care, our Neurocritical Care division developed innovative new programs and clinics including the NeuroEmergencies Management and Transfers (NEMAT), initiatives in telehealth, and the Post-ICU Recovery Clinics.
