The Department of Neurology at Michigan State University is pleased to announce its expansion. We seek BC/BE candidates with interest and fellowship-trained in the area of Behavioral or Geriatric Neurology. The position is ideal for an individual who would like a classic academic physician position, with elements of patient care, clinical trials engagement, student and resident education and a strongly supportive environment for initiating or continuing mentored clinical research.

The hiring Division, Cognitive and Geriatric Neurology (CoGeNT), is led by Andrea Bozoki MD, and consists of a Nurse Practitioner, an R.N. a study coordinator and a study rater. The clinic sees over 1400 visits a year, with a 3-4 month wait list for new patients.
