Looking for an intellectually challenging work environment that values compassionate medical care? Want to advance the boundaries of medicine through clinical research? We have an opening for a nurse practitioner to join our expanding clinical research team at the Dysautonomia Center.

Autonomic disorders is an emerging subspecialty, which bridges the gap between neurology and internal medicine. Because the autonomic nervous system controls all organs of the body, patients with autonomic disorders often have multiple medical complications. Our nurse practitioners are an essential core for our Dysautonomia team. They play a critical role in providing expert healthcare to our patients.

The Dysautonomia Center at NYU Langone Medical Center is one of the only sites in the world dedicated to advancing the care of patients with autonomic disorders. Our medical team takes care of patients with developmental, neurodegenerative, autoimmune and traumatic/acquired conditions that affect autonomic function. At NYU, we are a referral site for rare autonomic disorders including familial dysautonomia and multiple system atrophy.

We are looking for a dedicated, ambitious, and compassionate nurse practitioner to share our mission to provide high-quality care. As a NP joining our team, you will play an active role in developing new and improved treatments for patients with autonomic disorders within our clinical research program. You will evaluate and manage patients in our clinic and consult on patients admitted to NYU Hospitals.

Recent NP graduates are welcome to apply. Neurology experience is not required, and internal medicine experience is welcomed. Our multi-disciplinary team are leaders in the field of autonomic education. We have an established training program to teach the necessary expertise to assess, diagnose, and manage the health problems of patients with a variety of autonomic disorders while working towards a path towards independence.

This position is 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday. On call hours are a part of the job requirement including rounding on patients when admitted on the weekends. Call amounts to approximately one week per month.
