 The Michigan Medicine Department of Pediatrics (University of Michigan) is seeking two board-certified/board-eligible Pediatric Epileptologists to join the Pediatric Epilepsy group in the division of Pediatric Neurology. Major clinical responsibilities will include direct patient care, as well as EEG interpretation. 

The Pediatric Epilepsy Program at Michigan Medicine is certified by the North American Epilepsy Centers as a Level IV center. The program provides cutting edge, comprehensive epilepsy care including advanced medical and dietary therapies, scalp EEG monitoring, grids and stereo-EEG, epilepsy surgery, responsive neurostimulation, deep brain stimulation, and access to clinical and bench research.

The Pediatric EEG Laboratory opened in 2011, in conjunction with the new C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. Since then, patient volumes have increased significantly across all aspects of the Epilepsy program: continuous EEG monitoring studies continue to grow each year with current volume ~1,900/year.  We have a dedicated inpatient Pediatric Epilepsy inpatient service that is staffed by Pediatric Epilepsy Nurse Practitioners and the Epilepsy faculty. We have one of the largest ketogenic diet programs in the USA with dedicated support from three full-time ketogenic dietitians. Other support staff include nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and administrative staff.

We provide continuous EEG monitoring for patients in the neonatal, pediatric, and cardiac intensive care units, in addition to consult patients on the general care pediatric services and in the pediatric emergency department. EEG monitoring can be performed in every room in the hospital. Our large EEG technical staff provides 24/7 in-house EEG technologists.

We offer outpatient clinic and EEG services at two outreach locations in Southeast Michigan, in addition to the Mott Hospital site. The Pediatric Epilepsy program was the first of its kind to develop Telemedicine services for Pediatric Epilepsy. Telemedicine capability has grown exponentially over the last year, and has excellent support form a dedicated Virtual Care team.

Our comprehensive pediatric epilepsy surgery program provides state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment for children with pharmacoresistant epilepsy. We offer Phase 1 and Phase 2 surgical evaluations, intracranial EEG monitoring, focal resections, callosotomy, hemispherectomy and responsive neurostimulation. The number of epilepsy surgery cases has grown dramatically over the last five years.   

The Pediatric Epilepsy Program currently has 10 board-certified pediatric epileptologists. We enjoy a close, collegial relationship with the Michigan Medicine Adult Epilepsy program. We have a large Epilepsy fellowship program that is run jointly with Adult Epilepsy, and regularly recruits pediatric neurologists. Several of the faculty have robust research careers with independent NIH, PCORI, HRSA, and foundation support. We are actively involved as leaders of the Pediatric Epilepsy Research Consortium and the Pediatric Epilepsy Learning Healthcare System. Our clinical research team is supported by six full-time research coordinators and led by our Research Supervisor.

Our program is thriving and has achieved exceptional regional and national reputations. C. S. Mott Children's Hospital is consistently ranked as the #1 Children's Hospital in Michigan. We are looking for another clinician to join this exceptional team.
