Job Description

A full-time opportunity exists within Ambulatory Care for a Family Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant to be a Float Practitioner and provide coverage in multiple Family Health Centers and/or Integrated Clinics when primary medical care providers are away from those sites for vacations, CME, sick days, FMLA (or other leaves of absence).

The role of the Float Practitioner is to deliver primary care services in our eleven primary care clinics, all in the Phoenix Metro Area, that need their provider staffing augmented temporarily. Depending on the purpose of a particular assignment and its length, the work might include seeing same-day patients, covering routine patients for a provider who is out of the clinic for vacation, CME, or other leave time.

Providers in the Float Practitioner role may still opt for either four-day or five-day work weeks. Compensation will include a $10,000 annual stipend for being a Float Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant.

Employment would be through District Medical Group Inc. (DMG), a multi-specialty group with 400+ providers exclusively contracted to provide patient care and teaching at Valleywise Health (formerly Maricopa Medical Center). Candidate must have an Arizona NP or PA license and the ability and willingness to commute to varying clinic locations as requested. Previous clinical experience is highly desirable and preferred in the Float Practitioner role. DMG offers an outstanding work environment and a competitive compensation/benefits package including 4 weeks PTO (personal time off), pension plan, CME allowance with paid time off and employer paid malpractice insurance.
