Palmetto Health and University of South Carolina in Columbia South Carolina is looking to expand the neurosurgery program. We are looking for a general neurosurgeon with interest in spine, surgeon must be Board Eligilible or Board Certified. The program currently has 6 neurosurgeons, three neurointensivists and one neuropsychologist. In addition, the department has 21 nurse practitioners/physician assistants. This is a multidisciplinary medical group with comprehensive neurology and pain management groups.

This practice provides call coverage for Palmetto Health Richland Hospital. The hospital is a referral facility for the Midland s area and is a designated ACS Level 1 Trauma Center. This practice allows for diversification in allowing time for a private practice, clinical research, and teaching.

Geographically located in the center of the state, Columbia is South Carolina's capital and home to most every amenity expected of a metropolitan area. From SEC sports to beautiful rivers and parks to shopping and dining, Columbia offers something for every age and interest. We also are located only a couple of hours from some of the most spectacular beaches and the lush Blue Ridge Mountains.

Whatever your preference in homes, you can find it here. Compared to other parts of the country, housing in Columbia is quite affordable. Older homes are nestled in downtown neighborhoods such as Shandon and Forest Acres, while newer, younger neighborhoods continue to expand in the suburban areas of Irmo, Lexington, Blythewood and along the shoreline of Lake Murray. This is a wonderful place to live and practice medicine without the worries that come with running a practice.

Employment includes a competitive salary and exceptional benefits (professional liability, health, dental, life, disability, vision and more).
