The Department of Neurology at Staten Island University Hospital / Northwell Health is seeking two full-time Neuro-intensivists to partner with two experienced faculty members to develop our rapidly-growing Neurocritical Care service.

Neurocritical care consultation is also provided in the Emergency Department and other intensive care units. Our team consists of two existing Neuro-intensivists and 8 full-time Advanced Care Providers. Staten Island University Hospital is the only Level-1 Trauma Center on Staten Island, has 24/7 neurosurgical and neuro-interventional services, and champions a highly collegial interdisciplinary atmosphere.

Teaching responsibilities include continual training of our 8 dedicated NP/PA Advanced Care Providers and instruction for rotating physician trainees; our inaugural classes of Neurology Residents and Neurovascular Fellows start service in July 2021.

Candidates will have completed residency training in Neurology, a UCNS-accredited fellowship in Neurocritical Care, and hold a NY State medical license.
