The physician manages the delivery of quality patient care in accordance with standards of medical practice, ethics, and professionalism. The physician directs and supervises Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants on staff.
We offer a competitive salary, medical benefits, vacation, and CME allowance. We are looking for candidates who enjoy being part of a multidisciplinary team and who have excellent communication skills.
Physician applicants who are board certified in IM or FP are preferred, but we will also consider residents.
Preferred: Board certified in Internal Medicine, but will consider Family Practice.
EMR system: Meditech for all documentation and ordering
Coverage needed: Physicians share call and coverage, but typically will cover 4-7 day blocks with occasional night call relief.
Support: A Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant is staffed during the daytime hours to assist with H&Ps, discharge, daily rounds, and to respond to other nursing calls.
Daily volumes: We typically round on 20-25 acute patients per day in the Critical Care Unit, Surgical Unit, and Medical Unit. We also provide medical coverage for patients in the geri-psychiatric unit and rehabilitation units, but these patients typically do not require daily rounds.
