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.

There will be no weekend coverage, no on-call requirements! Our group has 2 adult thoracic surgeons, 5 adult cardiac surgeons, team of 6 hospital-based PA’s/NP’s and 2 thoracic RN’s. Salary Range 98K-140K, Comprehensive Benefits.
