University of Vermont Medical Center Seeks Fellowship-Trained Movement Disorder Neurologist
The Department of Neurological Sciences at the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine - Neurology Health Care Service at the University of Vermont Medical Center is a recently formed translational neuroscience department at the Vermont Academic Medical Center. We are seeking to recruit two additional fellowship-trained movement disorder neurologists to join the evolving program. The Frederick C. Binter Center for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders offers coordinated multidisciplinary clinical services, carries designation as a HDSA Center of Excellence, and is actively involved with the Parkinson and Huntington Study Groups. The center looks to expand expertise in clinical care, clinical research, and translational neuroscience investigations. Related training in any of the following areas would be important to note: functional neuroscience (DBS, neurophysiology or functional imaging), clinical trials training and expertise, translational neuroscience laboratory investigative work. Other research related activities in movement disorders should be noted.
Our goal is to continue the highest level of clinical care and education the unit currently provides. Neurology residents, fellows and medical students have opportunities to receive a portion of their clinical training in this setting.
The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching, and/or service. Applicants are requested to include in their cover letter information about how they will further this goal.
