Physician Assistant Thoracic Surgery
Seeking an experienced surgical Physician Assistant to expand their growing team! This will be a well-rounded role working in the OR, Clinic.
This position will handle pre-surgical consultations, clinic visits and referrals, as well as develop patient care plans and perform patient education, discharge planning and post op follow-up phone calls; serve as first assistant for thoracic cases in the OR; identify patients for clinical trials, participate in daily rounds and educate our healthcare professionals; and document all patient encounters in the Epic electronic health records. Proficiency with computers or electronic health records required.
This position will have OR/in-patient responsibility but because of the way thoracic patients/surgery works, a lot of the patient care responsibility is done as pre op and post op. A large percentage of this role reviewing patient studies/records and then managing the patients via phone calls upon discharge and in return clinic appointments. Because the patient population discharges its patients pretty quickly, the non OR/out-patient time could likely be 70%. It is important to manage these patients post operatively and not just be in the OR.
