We are seeking candidates interested in the Front Line Ordering Clinician role in a number of departments (Behavioral Health, Pediatric Critical Care, General Pediatrics, GI, Neonatal, Neurology, Rehab Medicine).

Under the supervision of an attending physician, the Front Line Ordering Clinician (FLOC) Physician Assistant is responsible for the direct care and follow-up of a population of patients that matches his/her scope of practice and skill set. This care is delivered in defined inpatient and hospital-outpatient areas. The components of the role include clinical practice, consultation, professional development, education, and research. The PAs in these roles may be required to have acute/critical care education. The appropriate education will be determined by the scope of the role in a particular practice area. The clinical portion of this role will require increased level of accountability including managing a cohort of high acuity patients. In addition to managing patient care, the FLOC PA may be required to utilize invasive interventions and procedures to promote physiologic stability. The role will also include off-shift responsibility. The off shift rotation schedule may include days, evenings, nights, weekends and holidays and will be determined by the clinical needs of the practice environment.
