Physician Assistant Job Opening

Alaska Hand-Elbow-Shoulder (AkHES), an upper extremity orthopedic surgical practice in Anchorage, Alaska, is seeking a Physician Assistant to join our practice. Orthopedic/Surgical experience is preferred but not required, as we are willing to train a new PA grad.

Responsibilities include: practice of medicine under direct physician supervision. Practice includes conducting exams in clinic (new and follow up patients) and writing prescriptions. In collaboration with their supervising physician, PA will be able to perform a variety of services, including diagnosing, treatment, therapy, and ordering surgery. Surgical assist duties in the OR would also be expected. AkHES is a primarily upper extremity orthopedic practice, with occasional lower extremity opportunities. Other duties include, but are not limited to: assisting physicians with EMTALA call, after-hours clinic call, and administrative duties.

This position requires current NCCPA certification, and all of the academic prerequisites associated with said certification.

As a full time, permanent position, this job offers competitive wages, health and dental coverage, life and short/long term disability coverage, and a simple IRA retirement plan.

The position work schedule would mirror that of the primary supervising physician. PA can expect Monday – Friday in either clinic and/or surgery, with additional varying city call days based on the assignments given to the supervising physician.

To apply, please contact the Administrator, Olivia Wolf, at (907) 771-3511 or manager@akhanddoc.com.
