There are currently 3 Neurologist within the group, all doing general Neurology, along with their doing procedures related to their subspecialty training. They would like to find a candidate with either a Stroke fellowship, or Neurophysiology fellowship. THEY are also open to other fields of sub-specialty training as long as all of the candidates understand there will be some general Neurology work within the practice. There can be some Sleep, though not much.
You will be stepping into a very well established Neurology Group, but will be expected to build and grow your practice with their assistance. So if you had a Stroke fellowship, you’d be building that portion of that specialty as you grow the general Neurology portion of your practice as well.
They offer a competitive salary for this market, with an opportunity for partnership after two years if you desire to do so. There will be no buy-in. They offer a full benefits package as well.
They work out of two hospitals (one, a future Comprehensive Stroke Center, and the other, a Primary Stoke Center), both located within a few miles of each other. Your office would be at the hospital with what will eventually be Comprehensive Stroke Center. If you are a board certified Vascular Neurologist, you may have an additional option of administrative work at the hospital with the C.T.C.
Call will be 1 in 4. They pull call 1 week at a time, Monday through Sunday, with rounding at the hospitals on the weekend. There is some ER call, at the hospital with the C.T.C. They average about 2 calls per mth, by phone from home. On occasion you’d have to go to the ER to care for the patient.
This Group has an excellent reputation within Northeast New Jersey. A big reason for that is their patient centric practice philosophy. You would have one hour to spend with a new patient, and a half an hour for their follow ups.
All in all this is an outstanding opportunity for a physician who is looking for an opportunity to build a sound Neurology practice with all the support needed to do so. Add to that is living in an area with outstanding schools, great local amenities, and just a step away from one of the world’s greatest cities.
