Christiana Care Health System is actively recruiting for a BE/BE generalist outpatient physiatrist to treat patients in our Gateway (Wilmington Hospital) and our outpatient neurology practice (Newark, DE). The Newark office is located 15 minutes from the Wilmington Hospital.
These are busy outpatient practices that offer a concussion clinic, amputee clinic and a falls clinic offering a huge variety of patients/treatment needs for the incoming physiatrist. Our patient load is growing and we have been receiving a steady flow of primary care referrals for years causing the physiatry team to expand their outpatient piece in the Newark location. At the Wilmington Hospital you will also have the ability to do trauma rounds and stroke rounds to evaluate patients for rehab.
Weekend call is 1:7 where Saturdays are spent physically onsite doing rounds on patients in our 26 bed rehabilitation unit in the Wilmington campus (Sunday call is via phone). There is NO weekday call and the Hospitalists cover the night call. This physician will also assist in the quality assurance and risk management programs, actively participate in patient care staff meetings and actively foster positive collaborative relationships with patients, family members, referring physicians, fellow team members and others. Candidates who complete a brain injury fellowship will also be considered.
