OVERVIEW:


We are seeking a fellowship trained MS specialist or ARNP/PA with experience in MS to join our existing thriving MS center located in the Inland Northwest.


Come be a part of MultiCare’s Neuroscience Institute located in the Spokane, WA area. You will have the opportunity to join an amazing, friendly group of neurologists, most with subspecialty training. This is an outpatient opportunity only and there is ZERO hospital call. We have full time neuro-hospitalists covering both affiliated MultiCare hospitals in the area, Deaconess and Valley.


The candidate would be joining me in our established MS center. There has been significant increase in our MS patient panel, and because of this, we need another provider. I am fellowship trained in MS and Neuroimmunology at Stony Brook, NY. We also employ a MS certified registered nurse and are a Partner in Care with the National MS Society and a member of the Consortium of MS Centers.


Our MS practice is highly supported by the organization, including infusions centers, neuroradiology with 3T MRIs, a research institute, and the ability to offer patients comprehensive care, including mental health, urology, PMR (rehab medicine), neuropsychology, speech/PT/OT and sleep medicine.


We have developed a Neuroscience Institute governed by providers which has given us more autonomy. The MS position has a competitive salary without worries of production RVUs. You will be able to set up your clinic the way you prefer and can work 4 or 5 days/week.


This really is an excellent opportunity!
