Orthopaedic Surgeon with a Sports Fellowship seeks a full-time Physician Assistant. The new PA will work directly with this Doctor. The Doctor handles mostly sports cases (knees, shoulders, fractures and some general). The new PA will work with Sports Teams (High School) and will provide sideline coverage for football games. The group has a state-of-the-art PT Center.
The new PA will focus on seeing patients in the clinic and spend up to one to two days in the OR performing first assist. Call coverage is 1/15. The remaining responsibilities include: office procedures, H&P’s, cortisone injections, fracture reductions, writing scripts, removing casts and pins, rounds, consultation and patient evaluation and education, reviewing lab results.
The new PA must have excellent interpersonal skills and enjoy working in a fast paced environment. Ideal candidate would have direct Orthopaedic PA experience, but will consider a new PA that also has ATC/Exercise Science background. Columbia is the capital of South Carolina and offers several universities, culture, all year round outdoor life style and a great quality of life. The Doctor prefers a candidate with ties to the southeast!
