Primary Care Physicians manage the full spectrum of primary care responsibilities, including admission, evaluation, diagnosis and treatment (including consultation on patients referred for internal medicine complaints, diseases, and injuries). Clinical responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
- Ordering appropriate lab work and diagnostic tests
- Requesting consultations to specialty services
- Providing appropriate follow-up care
- Triaging of patients with non-medicine complaints, diseases, and injuries to appropriate disciplines for diagnosis and treatment
- You will complete foundational training required for effective delivery of telemedicine. The ISP may offer opportunities to deploy as a tele-primary care provider.
Computer skills are essential, as VA Medical Centers are fully-computerized for note documentation, entering orders and requesting consults.
First referral will be made August 3, 2018; additional referrals will be made as requested by management.
