Full Job Description

Overview:

Novant Health Medical Group is looking for a conscientious, compassionate, and experienced
Orthopedic Physician Assistant to join a local, growing practice consisting of three physicians and two APPs. This position would provide clinical care for orthopedic patients in an ambulatory and acute setting in Brunswick County, NC. We are looking for a candidate who is experienced in casting, joint injections, suture removal and surgical assist. The ideal candidate is patient-centric, flexible, adaptable, dependable, and treats each member of the team whether clinical or non-clinical as a valued part of the team.
Our expert surgeons and PA’s work collaboratively to provide outstanding quality to our operative and non-operative patients. Our Orthopedic providers treat patients with a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Candidates are responsible for performing a variety of functions under the supervision of the orthopedic surgeon. These include but are not limited to: seeing patients in the office setting, assisting in surgery and office procedures, taking call, evaluation of orthopedic diagnoses, and coordination of the patient care pathway.
Supply is a rural beach community, ideally located about halfway between Wilmington, NC, and Myrtle Beach, SC. Our county is growing rapidly but still offers a reasonable cost of living for a coastal community. It offers a quieter pace of living than either Wilmington or Myrtle Beach while offering easy access to the amenities of both.
