The Division of Headache and Facial Pain in the Department of Neurology at Stanford University seeks a board-certified or board-eligible adult neurologist specializing in adult concussion and sports neurology to join the Department as Clinical Assistant Professor, Clinical Associate Professor, or Clinical Professor in the Clinician Educator Line.

The major criterion for appointment in the Clinician Educator Line is excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, teaching, administrative and/or scholarship appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill.

The successful applicant should have an interest and expertise in the diagnosis and management of concussion and other traumatic brain injury in the outpatient setting and a demonstrated commitment to teaching students, residents, and fellows. Candidates must also have excellent communication skills and an ability to work collaboratively with a multi-disciplinary team (including Concussion Physical Therapy, Neuropsychology, Headache Medicine, Otoneurology) and other departments and disciplines. Necessary qualifications include an MD or equivalent degree, ABPN certification or eligibility, and eligibility for a California medical license.

We are particularly interested in candidates who have fellowship training in concussion and sports neurology or extensive experience in those areas.

Responsibilities are expected to include caring for patients with concussion and other traumatic brain injury at the main Stanford Neurology clinic site in Palo Alto and possibly other sites. There is no required inpatient time. Teaching rotating medical students, neurology residents, and headache medicine fellows in clinic and during formal didactic sessions is also expected. For qualified candidates, opportunities are available to participate in research, quality improvement, and development of innovative care programs. Specific breakdown of time per responsibility is negotiable.
