The Walt Disney Pavilion at AdventHealth for Children is looking for a dynamic and energetic pediatric neurologist to join a fast growing multidisciplinary pediatric neuroscience program to help further develop general and subspecialty neuroscience programs. 

Currently, the pediatric neuroscience center at AdventHealth for Children has a level IV comprehensive epilepsy center, sleep center, multidisciplinary neurofibromatosis clinic, Tuberous Sclerosis Complex clinic, congenital neurosurgery clinic, and craniofacial clinic supported by a strong group of neuroradiologists and neuropsychologists.  The hospital has a 20 bed dedicated neuroscience inpatient unit with an embedded 8 bed epilepsy monitoring unit which will grow to 24 beds in a newly renovated neuroscience floor.  Diagnostic facility includes a state-of-art 3T MRIs, PET, SPECT, and MEG center.

Working with an expanding and committed children’s hospital, an established and successful Level IV Peds Epilepsy program with a strong referral base, a dedicated inpatient unit, a strong employed physician multi-specialty group, a family-centered practice atmosphere, the ability to build and shape a program, and a competitive benefits / compensation package are just a few of the many reasons why this is an excellent career opportunity to consider.
