Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics (Practitioner)-CHLA

Keck School of Medicine Faculty Los Angeles, California

The University of Southern California (USC), founded in 1880, is the largest private employer in the City of Los Angeles. As an employee of USC, you will be a part of a world-class research university and a member of the "Trojan Family," which is comprised of the faculty, students and staff that make the university what it is.

The Division of Neurology, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) are actively seeking a neurologist with training in child neurology as a full-time faculty member for the position of Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics (Practitioner) to join its current team of 20 faculty members as a neurohospitalist. For this position, someone who has completed additional fellowship training in pediatric neurocritical care or vascular neurology will be given preference. Individuals without fellowship training with a strong interest in inpatient neurology are also encouraged to apply.

Division of Neurology:

The Division of Neurology is part of the Neurosciences Service Line (the Neurological Institute) which has been highlighted as a key service line by the hospital. The Division of Neurology is currently undergoing rapid expansion with the development of comprehensive clinical general and sub-specialty child neurology programs as well as enhancement of its research portfolio. A brand-new integrated clinic space for the Divisions of Neurology and Neurosurgery opened in the Spring of 2021. The goal of the Neurologic Institute is to offer comprehensive and integrated neurologic services in a patient-centered environment.

Neurohospitalist Program:

CHLA has a busy inpatient neurology service given that it is the largest, free-standing children’s hospital in Southern California. To provide more focused care to children in the inpatient setting, the division envisions having a robust neurohospitalist program moving forward. We are looking to recruit a motivated child neurologist with an interest in inpatient neurology to help expand our inpatient program. The position will entail involvement in inpatient general neurology service with weeknight and weekend call. The remainder of the time will be spent in an ambulatory setting. Unless applicant is pediatric neurocritical care trained, no neurocritical care coverage will be required.  

CHLA is a busy urban teaching hospital with a diverse patient population. There is a very active outpatient neurology clinic with subspecialty programs in neuromuscular disorders (MDA), epilepsy (including epilepsy surgery, VNS and  ketogenic diet), movement disorders (including deep brain stimulation and baclofen pump), neuro-intensive care, pediatric stroke, neurocutaneous disorders and demyelinating disorders. Our faculty currently provides outpatient clinical services to CHLA and five satellite clinic locations within the greater Los Angeles area. The division has an ACGME-approved child neurology residency program which operates in collaboration with the KSOM LAC + USC/University Hospital. Our division accepts three child neurology residents per year who divide their time between the two sites.  Furthermore, there is ongoing clinical research within our general child neurology and subspecialty programs. 

Academic appointment through the Keck School of Medicine of USC is available at a level appropriate to training and experience. CHLA and USC strongly values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply. If you are interested contact Diana Babayan, Division Administrator of Neurology at dbabayan@chla.usc.edu.

CHLA and USC are equal opportunity, affirmative action employers. The division greatly values diversity and is committed to building a vibrant and culturally diverse community of faculty that best reflects the patients and families that we serve. Individuals from underrepresented groups in medicine are especially encouraged to apply.
