A Physician Group Serving Alameda Health System

Careers – Chief of Neurology - Alameda Health System


Do you have the drive to take a developing specialty and build it into its own department?

Beyond your expertise in the practice and teaching of neurology, you also have a penchant for thinking on a larger scale and the capabilities to carry out what you envision. At Alameda Health System, we are specifically looking for someone with that rare combination of abilities and creativity to form a thriving department built to your high standards.

Highland Hospital, our anchor facility, is seeking a Chief of Neurology to head and expand our Neurology Division, which is currently part of our Department of Medicine, to the point where it becomes a separate department with you as its eventual chair. Highland Hospital is a home to several teaching programs with 235 licensed beds, a regional trauma center, and delivers primary and specialty care that serves the multicultural community of the Bay Area population.

In addition to your clinical and administrative roles, you will also have the opportunity to participate in a strong collaboration with the Neurology Department at the University of California, San Francisco. This connection will further strengthen our ability to provide the best and most progressive treatment and training as we move toward a future of growth and change.  This opportunity involves:

  • Establishing a strong and impassioned vision for the future
  • Developing and implementing new policies for patient care that enhance outcomes, quality, and operational performance
  • Building excellence into the clinical and academic mission
  • Teaching and curriculum development
  • Serving as a subject matter expert and mentor to physicians, both in and outside the specialty
  • Recruiting, hiring and training outstanding new physicians and faculty
  • Managing and monitoring Neurology division performance


Requirements for this position include:

  • Board Certification in Neurology along with CA licensure and valid DEA registration
  • At least 3 years of academic Neurology experience
  • A strong background which includes team leadership, mentoring faculty as well as applying best practices and evaluating clinical outcomes
