The Sinai Rehabilitation Center, the flagship anchor of the LifeBridge Health Rehabilitation services Network in Baltimore, MD, is looking for a highly engaged full time brain injury physiatrist for our inpatient acquired brain injury program at Sinai Hospital. The position oversees the CARF accredited inpatient brain injury unit in the Friedman Neurological Rehabilitation Center. The Center is staffed with an expert team of therapists, neuropsychologist, social work, and many CRRN certified nurses in a state of the art facility. This physician sees all the patients in the acute hospital with diagnoses related to acquired brain injury and makes recommendations for the appropriate next phase of rehabilitation that may include not only admission to the Friedman unit but to other levels of care within the LifeBridge Health system. Patients seen in consultation thus may become your patients on the rehab unit. Our longstanding model reflects the PMR Bold continuum of care initiative. The other levels of care in the system are also staffed by physiatrists from the department. Outpatient clinic is in the planning stages where long term care of your patients may include oversight of outpatient therapy, admission to our RETURN! outpatient community re-entry program, spasticity management, and interaction with our division of Rehabilitation Engineering when personalized devices may be required.
The applicant must have excellent communication, teaching and organizational skills. You will lead the inter-disciplinary team and must understand and be committed to the best practices of team work. Insuring an excellent patient experience and optimal rehabilitation outcome are priorities. Resident teaching is a requirement as there is a full- time resident assigned to this rotation. We have excellent relationships with our colleagues from neurology and neurosurgery.
Sinai Hospital of Baltimore is the sponsoring institution for our PM&R residency training program. We have 12 residents, 4 per year. There are 15 Physiatrists in the department deployed across the health system.
Experience with inpatient brain injury rehabilitation or completion of a brain injury fellowship is necessary.
