Port Charlotte, Florida
This private practice was opened in 2010 and, today, employs 2 physicians and 2 nurse practitioners, along with a robust support staff of nurses, medical assistants, and other talented healthcare personnel. In addition to operating a primary care office in Port Charlotte, the practice’s providers round at local skilled nursing facilities, seeing a largely adult and geriatric patient base in all settings. They are currently growing and are excited to welcome a new physician to their team.
The new physician will spend 80% of their time in the Port Charlotte office and 20% of their time rounding at local skilled nursing facilities (SNFs).
The schedule for this is at the discretion of the physician - they have the option to do 1 dedicated SNF day per week or can break the SNF work up into smaller increments, to distribute the 20% of their hours however they see fit. The office team will accommodate the schedule in both settings according to direction.
In a full SNF day, a physician sees 30-35 patients and is accompanied by an RN. The RN will complete all charting (via EHR on a laptop), so the physician can focus on the patient visit. The RN will also prep the patients and assist however necessary.
In a full office day, a physician sees 20 patients. These visits are also fully support by an RN who completes the charting, preps the patient, etc.
In all settings, 90%+ of patients are aged 55 and above.
On-call is largely handled by the nurse practitioners. There is a physician designated as the back-up, in case a matter needs to be escalated. Phone calls to the physician are minimal and responsibilities are solely phone triage. If the new physician would like to participate in the on-call rotation to receive extra compensation, the practice will accommodate that.
- Florida medical license
- Board Certified or Eligible, Family Medicine or Internal Medicine
- no experience required; recent graduates/current residents are welcome to apply
