Author information

Department of Neurology, San Francisco, California.


The rapid expansion of neurohospitalist programs nationally has been fueled by recent graduates as well as by practicing neurologists increasingly choosing this career direction. An inpatient-focused job is compelling from an intellectual perspective as it allows the opportunity to treat acute disorders where new treatments are constantly emerging. Challenges entail arranging coverage, defining financial models of reimbursement, expanding into rural and international settings, and assuring proper training for those entering this emerging field. A diverse set of opportunities in both practice and academics are viable career options. Those choosing to embark on the neurohospitalist path have the opportunity to lead the field through a time of tremendous growth and change for years to come.
