The Department of Neurology at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) seeks an experienced clinical faculty member to join its Memory Disorders Program. The faculty position can involve clinical and academic activities at either UC Irvine Medical Center, the VA Long Beach Medical Center, Gottschalk Medical Plaza on the university campus in Irvine, or other community sites located throughout Orange County.

The Department of Neurology in the UC Irvine Health School of Medicine offers comprehensive, compassionate, world-class care for the entire spectrum of neurological conditions. Our UCI Health neurologists are national leaders in the care of patients suffering from stroke, epilepsy, seizures, brain tumors, degenerative nerve diseases, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, as well as memory disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease.

We are engaged in basic and translational research to better understand the fundamentals of neurology and use the best clinical approaches for our patients.
