    McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) are looking for a spine neurosurgeon with interest in outcomes and comparative effectiveness research to join the team of VCU neurosurgeons at the VAMC. This position will be centered at the VA, with protected time for outcomes and comparative effectiveness research, and with an academic appointment at VCU. One of the primary goals of this position is to build a comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach to patients with spinal symptoms. Existing research/QA staff include a PhD in neuroscience dedicated to outcomes research, a research coordinator, a clinical nurse coordinator, and collaborators in pain management, PM&R, psychiatry, and addiction medicine. A robust pain clinic manages patients with chronic pain. This clinic provides resources for patients with nonsurgical problems so that the neurosurgeons can concentrate on surgical care. One day per week will be spent in a clinical practice at VCU, with the ultimate goal of expanding the VAMC spine research program to encompass VCU spine care.  Two days per week will be allotted for research and program development to allow the successful candidate to develop a mature research effort and obtain external grant funding. Qualified applicants will be fellowship-trained (or equivalent experience) in spine neurosurgery, with an interest or history in outcomes research, and will be board eligible/certified or equivalent. Complex spine surgery experience is required. The applicant should have a strong interest in working collaboratively with both clinical and research teams. Resident supervision and mentoring is an important component of the position. Candidates with a background in comparative effectiveness or outcomes research will be preferred.
