When you join the largest integrated, not-for-profit medical group practice in the world, you'll work alongside approximately 3,800 physicians/scientists and 1,600 Nurse Practitioners/Physician Assistants across all locations in a unique environment that brings together the best in patient care, groundbreaking research and innovative medical education.
Position description
The team dynamic of 3 Family Medicine physicians, 2 advance practice providers, nursing staff, and registration/schedulers is built on open communication, support and trust to deliver quality and compassionate care to our community.

The NP or PA will provide acute, chronic, and preventive health care services to patients of all ages. The provision of care includes but is not limited to comprehensive evaluation, ordering and interpreting diagnostic tests, prescription of pharmacologic agents and treatments, non-pharmacologic therapies, and counseling patients. The many facets of the daily function of this role creates opportunities to develop and hone technical skills as well as implement foundational medical knowledge necessary to perform exams, order and interpret lab or radiologic diagnostics, and create assessments and plans for patients in the clinic setting.

This working environment allows for a broad scope of practice to meet the Family Medicine needs of our rural Minnesotan and Wisconsin populations. Additionally, our team based care model allows for the PA to have autonomy with patient care and procedures, yet the supervising physicians are easily accessible when necessary. The close proximity to Mayo Clinic Rochester provides another unique opportunity to take advantage of their resources. The scope of practice and breadth of knowledge necessary to appropriately treat this patient population is likely to be challenging yet very rewarding. Daily, needs of the patient will arise that will require this provider to recognize their skill set and know when to manage independently versus facilitating access to a physician.
Masters prepared graduate of an accredited school of nursing and Nurse Practitioner program. Current Minnesota RN license and certification as an ANP or FNP. A Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) is preferred.

Or graduate of accredited Physician Assistant program with current PA certification by NCCPA and registration as a PA by the Minnesota State Board of Medical Practice.
