Maine Medical Partners Neurology is seeking a full-time board certified/eligible Neurologist to practice primarily inpatient general neurology. Fellowship training/special interest in vascular neurology or neuro-ICU would be welcome but is not required.
Primary inpatient responsibilities are at Maine Medical Center (MMC), the states leading tertiary care hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center, and the major neurological and neurosurgical referral center for Maine and Eastern New Hampshire. MMC has 637 licensed beds and admits roughly one thousand ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke patients per year. MMC has a full complement of residencies and fellowships, and is integrated with Tufts University Medical School.
The inpatient neurohospitalist program covers all general and vascular neurology consultations in the hospital. Neurohospitalist coverage will involve approximately fourteen shifts per month. The neurohospitalist is assisted by 12 hours of nurse practitioner coverage daily. In addition, the position entails coverage of the Telestroke network, of which there are currently five hospitals engaged. The position also involves supervision of a NP-run stroke follow up clinic 1-2 days per month.

The Neurology group has been a premiere site for neurologic care in Maine since 1988. The practice works closely with the Neuroscience Institute at Maine Medical Center to further develop the Neuroscience Centers of Excellence which supports the initiatives of our Stroke, Epilepsy, Movement Disorders and Multiple Sclerosis programs. The practice includes opportunities both to teach medical students and residents and to pursue research through the Maine Medical Center Research Institute.
