Endocrinologist: Office + Hospital
PrimaCARE, a 160-provider multispecialty group in southeast Massachusetts, is recruiting a full-time Endocrinologist. This Prima CARE Division is staffed by Fellowship-trained physicians and mid-level providers, and has a strong referral base of PCPs and other specialists. Southeast Massachusetts has a disproportionate prevalence of diabetes compared to the rest of Massachusetts, and the practice also manages thyroid and other adult endocrine conditions.
Interest in diabetes and thyroid disease is important, and any other areas of interest or expertise are welcomed. The successful candidate will see office patients in our Fall River office and will rotate hospital consultations at Saint Anne’s Hospital with your 3 physician colleagues. The hospital rounding team includes a midlevel (NP or PA), who will carry a pager throughout the day.
Prima CARE also offers continuous glucose monitoring, a comprehensive weight management program, osteoporosis management, Men’s Health, a Transgender Clinic, and a Thyroid Center offering ultrasound and FNA. Lab and imaging are readily available. PrimaCARE uses an electronic medical record (eClinicalworks) and the hospital uses either Meditech.
Salary will be commensurate with training and experience. PrimaCARE is an affiliate of Steward Healthcare, but is physician-owned and managed. This position includes a path to partnership. We participate in all major national and regional healthcare quality initiatives, Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), insisting on the highest quality of care. Candidates completing their Endocrinology training are welcome to apply.
Fall River is in a lovely area of the country, surrounded by water of various sorts. We are 20 minutes from Providence, Rhode Island, an hour from Boston, and 30 minutes from Cape Cod.
