Job Description:

Geriatrics physician job in California : WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS JOB A multitude of healthcare companies claim they are revolutionizing the healthcare industry, and leading the way to a better future of healthcare. With all of those claims, it can be a challenge to distinguish who really is doing things differently. If you are a Physician seeking a chance to truly improve the way the healthcare system supports our most fragile patients, this is the opportunity for you. Our patient population consists of patients who are affected by multiple chronic illnesses. The combination of these illnesses, and their individual and compounding treatment needs, make navigating the healthcare system a particular challenge. For these patients, having the full scope of their healthcare needs managed longitudinally by a multi-disciplinary team gives patients a central advocate, and helps prevent unnecessary hospital admissions for a population that frequently feels they have nowhere else to turn. As a Physician on this team, you will travel to the patients homes. In some cases, you will travel to Skilled Nursing Facilities or Long-Term Care, in other cases Active Retirement Communities, and in some cases independent homes. This is a team that rallies around our patients. You can understand our motivations by what inspires us, by what we celebrate. Patient satisfaction ratings are important, yes. But more than that - patients whose health is restored after years of struggle, patients who are able to live life more fully and comfortably, and whose healthcare needs are met without months in the hospital - these are the successes that motivate our team. It takes a special kind of person to have a heart for this job, and these patients. And, not everyone who has the heart for it can actually perform well in the role. It takes a highly-skilled Physician who is confident in his or her ability to make the right decision in a crucial moment. You must feel comfortable making decisions autonomously while in the home, but must also know when the patient truly does need additional care that cannot be provided in the home setting. This job is not easy. It pushes you to perform your best every single day, and calls on you when the challenge is too difficult for others. There are hard moments. You have on-call shifts. You are the person that the patient knows they can always rely upon. And, in return, you have great reward. You get to work at the top of your license. You collaborate with the upper echelon of healthcare providers and clinicians. You change lives for the patients who need you most. You are able to take the time you need to fully understand the root causes of your patients symptoms, and identify the factors limiting their ability to recover. You have a voice alongside those truly leading change in the industry. And, you are fully employed, with steady income that is not dependent upon patient quotas. You have opportunities to earn significant bonuses, you have generous PTO, and much, much more. Are you up for the challenge? Apply today! JOB DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIESAs a Physician your duties will be: - Assess patients medical, social / psychological, and financial needs regarding their healthcare - Provide same-day clinical assessment and treatment for pre-crisis intervention - Prescribe appropriate diagnostics and interventions to avoid unnecessary transfers/acute admissions - Consult with other physicians following notification of member transfer - Collaborate with UM staff and PCPs / facility staff to enable medical necessity determinations for requested medical services - Educate members and/or their legal representatives in disease processes affecting members and ways to manage them effectively, as well as to promote wellnessQUALIFICATIONS - Board Certified / Board Eligible Physician - Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) or Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) from an accredited educational institution - Current State License - Current Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Department of Public Safety (DPS) registrations for the purpose of writing prescriptions - Experienced and skilled at dealing with a complex set of patients with a relatively high level of acuity
