A hospital in western Pennsylvania seeks a BE/BC neurosurgeon to join an existing neurosurgery group. The department prefers a candidate who has completed an endovascular fellowship. This will be a fully employed position. This practice is affiliated with a university, and the incoming neurosurgeon will have an academic title of clinical assistant professor or a higher rank based on experience.
The existing group offers a private-practice feel in a mid-sized town within a locally dominant health system that will be an extension of a very large integrated health delivery system. The incoming physician will have the opportunity to build an endovascular sub-specialty practice in addition to practicing general neurosurgery. Call will be 1:4.
The group seeks a physician who can advance its neurosurgical service goals and grow with the dynamic needs of the Neurosciences Institute and busy trauma service. Ideally, the candidate will have excellent clinical and leadership skills. The group serves Northwestern Pennsylvania, Western New York, and Northeastern Ohio, and it is recognized as the leader in the provision of neurological surgery for this tri-state region. The hospital is a fully accredited Level II trauma center and is the only trauma center within 100 miles; there is no Level I trauma center in the area.
The hospital will offer a very competitive compensation package including a salary with a volume-based incentive, and full benefits including relocation and CME/vacation. The area has an abundance of cultural, recreational and educational resources. Outdoor recreation opportunities include a large lake, which offers the perfect setting for boating, water skiing, scuba diving, wind surfing, sailing and fishing. The town has a selection of excellent public, private and parochial schools, as well as local colleges and universities.
