Are you passionate about serving an underserved patient population? Do you believe everyone deserves quality healthcare?
Peak Vista has an opportunity for a full time BC Family Practice Physician to join our team of providers serving adults in our Pain and Wellness outpatient clinic in Colorado Springs, CO. This position offers great quality of life/work with four 10-hour days, no inpatient duties and occasional telephone call backing up an after-hours nurse triage call service.
The practice of whole-patient treatment for patients with chronic pain is uncommon, yet clearly this approach is what is needed to provide a range of effective therapies while maintaining patient safety. Peak Vista's Pain and Wellness center strives to deliver whole-patient treatment by combining comprehensive behavioral health with integrative physical treatments, dietary instruction, and medication management when needed, while offering other beneficial modalities through collaboration with local health care and wellness partners.
You will be joining a team of providers, including other advanced practice providers, a dietitian, and behavioral health providers. This position offers an excellent opportunity for career growth, providing a wide variety of opportunities, including process and quality improvement projects, mentorship, and potential research.
Our ideal candidate has 2+ years of experience in family medicine practicing in a primary care setting; strong preference for candidates with prior experience in chronic pain management; able to utilize a template-based EMR; and has an unrestricted Colorado license, as well as an active DEA, and comfortable seeing all ages, an average of 20 patients per day.
Employer will assist with relocation costs.
Additional Salary Information: Five weeks paid time off, One week and $2000 for Continuing Medical Education. Federal and State funds are available for loan repayment for eligible candidates. Peak Vista offers a full benefits package including medical, dental, vision, life, optional long term and short term disability and a 403b retirement fund.
