Job Description

LG Health Physicians Family and Maternity Medicine is seeking a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant to join our team.  Our group is comprised of 8 family physicians all serving as faculty members in the Family and Community Medicine Residency program as well as 3 APPs (soon to be 4).  We serve an economically, racially, and culturally diverse population with a greater than 50% Medicaid population.  Our scope of practice is full spectrum family medicine and therefore would be extremely flexible in terms of personal interests and desire for professional growth. From obstetrics care to virtually any procedure within primary care to MAT for substance use disorders, there is opportunity at Family and Maternity medicine. However, APP spectrum of care could be tailored to training and comfort level. We serve patients across the lifespan and many of our family medicine physicians deliver babies at WBH. Because the majority of the group is comprised of teachers of family medicine, there is a true culture of learning and creativity which pushes us all to practice the most evidenced based medicine and continually improve.  This APP would function as a primary care provider and carry a panel of patients in addition to acute care. 

Family and Maternity Medicine has one location attached to WBH.  Given the proximity to WBH, most ancillary services are very accessible to our patients, including radiology, physical therapy, laboratory services, etc.

Hours:  Full time (36 hours/week) including Thursday evening hours.  Otherwise there is no overnight call and no weekend hours.
