Clinical Neuropsychologist

Website Houston Methodist Hospital

The Department of Neurology, The Neurological Institute, and Houston Methodist Hospital System excited to be recruiting a full-time adult neuropsychologist to join our growing, vibrant, and busy interdisciplinary neuroscience group at the Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital campus.   Our rapidly growing practice is comprised of seven full-time neurologists representing of various specializations along with two neurosurgeons and a pain management physician.  The current neuropsychology team includes a neuropsychologist and a technician.  We work with diverse populations including stroke, TBI, neuromuscular disorders, movement disorders, neurodegenerative conditions, and neurosurgical cases. The successful candidate will have a desire to work with geriatric persons.  However, they will also have the breadth of clinical experience sufficient to reach across the adult age span as we also see a significant number of younger adults. The position requires strong clinical as well as excellent written and spoken communication skills.  The successful candidate will get to interface directly with neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other medical professionals.  The patient care experience is of foremost importance here at Houston Methodist. An excellent “bedside manner” is a must.  This position will be designated primarily for outpatient service delivery. However, inpatient consultations are sometimes required.  An application for hospital privileges will be required.

The position is primarily clinical but developing a research agenda is also encouraged with internal support available. An academic appointment is available through Weil-Cornell Medical School.

The Houston Methodist Neurological Institute ranks as one of the top clinical neurology/neurosurgery programs in the country and has a state-of-the-art research institute to support our academic mission. The salary is very competitive and commensurate with the level of experience. We offer a robust benefits package including professional development.  The anticipated start date for this position is September 2022.

About Houston:

Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States and is a hub for the energy, aerospace, healthcare, and engineering industries. The Greater Houston area encompasses nearly 600 square miles and includes Harris, Fort Bend, Liberty, Montgomery, and Waller counties. The Port of Houston is an attractive destination for international companies doing business around the globe.  The city is bursting with diversity, in part because of its many academic institutions, busy port, and strong industries. More than 90 languages are spoken here. Houston also has amongst the youngest populations in the nation and is the country’s demographic future with a mixture of Caucasian, Hispanic, African American, and Asian, among other residents.

Consistent with its size and diversity, the city offers a wide array of dining, entertainment, and cultural opportunities. However, despite its size and diversity, Houston offers a small-town atmosphere in its many neighborhoods and suburbs. Located 30 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico and 30 minutes from the Piney Woods, Houston is ideally located in Southeast Texas to capture the fancy of just about anyone with outdoor interests.
