Endocrinology Physician Assistant/Nurse Practitioner

Prima CARE, a 160-provider multispecialty group in southeast Massachusetts, is recruiting an Advanced Practice Provider (APP) to join our Endocrinology Division. This Division is staffed by Fellowship-trained physicians and APPs, covering office practices and hospital consultations. Prima CARE has a strong Primary Care referral base and southeast Massachusetts has a disproportionate prevalence of diabetes.

The APP will be clinic-based, seeing diabetic and general endocrinology outpatients, working under physician supervision. Office duties include diabetic teaching, initiation of oral/insulin therapy, management of hyperglycemic (and hypoglycemic) states, chronic diabetic care, and management of thyroid conditions. Although less common, other endocrine disease (e.g., adrenal, hypothalamic/pituitary, parathyroid, hypogonadism) may be seen. Prima CARE also offers a comprehensive weight management program, osteoporosis management, Men’s Health, and a Thyroid Center offering ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration.
Prima CARE uses an electronic medical record (eClinicalworks) and our endocrinologists use various types of glucose-monitoring technology.

The position is full-time, Monday-Friday with no night, weekend or holiday call. Salary will be commensurate with training and experience, with generous benefits including malpractice, a CME allowance, vacation/sick/personal time, health insurance, and a 401K retirement plan. Periodic performance reviews allow consideration for productivity bonuses and annual salary increases. The successful candidate must demonstrate a willingness to learn, maturity, organization, compassion, and an ability to work as part of a team. New grads will be considered.

Prima CARE is an affiliate of Steward Healthcare, but is physician-owned and managed. We participate in all major national and regional healthcare quality initiatives, Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), insisting on the highest quality of personalized care.
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.
