Position Details

Position Description

The Department of Neurology at the University of Washington School of Medicine is seeking to hire up to two neurologists to specialize in vascular neurology at the Comprehensive Stroke Center at Harborview Medical Center. The Stroke Program at Harborview represents a dynamic environment to practice vascular neurology, both inpatient and outpatient.  We care for ~800 stroke inpatients every year, including a disproportionate number of severe and hemorrhagic strokes. A Telestroke program is in place and expanding.  All patients are cared for by resident teams, and ICU patients are co-managed with the intensivists. You will interact with an outstanding and dedicated group of nine vascular neurologists, two interventional neurosurgeons, two interventional neuroradiologists, and an outstanding Emergency Department with a large, multidisciplinary and engaged team.  This is a full-time appointment and will be at the Assistant Professor rank (without tenure for reasons due to funding) in the clinician-educator pathway, but candidates with exceptional qualifications may be considered for appointment at the Associate Professor (without tenure for reasons due to funding). The rank is commensurate with qualification and experience. This position has a 12-month (July 1- June 30) service period.

University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.

The anticipated start date for these positions is July 1, 2022.


Requirements include MD, DO, or foreign equivalent degree, eligibility for medical licensure in the State of Washington, and certification or eligibility for certification by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in Neurology and Vascular Neurology. In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-U.S.) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
