A successful, highly rewarding independent practice is possible! A thriving expertly managed six-physician single specialty gastroenterology group would like to add another excellent physician. ERCP/EUS is a plus. All members of this group are board certified/recertified and the group follows a traditional physician-owned partnership model. The right physician can be fast tracked to partnership in one year. If you are looking to join an excellent group in a wonderful community, then this is among the best you will find. The group's members enjoy friendly relationships with a high degree of mutual respect. Hospital call in this group is shared equally among all members. The group is the only group serving the region's premier medical center 365 days per year. One physician covers all inpatient hospital procedures, consultations and call for one week at a time. Admissions are generally handled by the hospital's hospitalist service. The non-call doctors work equally in the group's outpatient office setting and outpatient endoscopy center. When not on call, your personal time is entirely free. All physicians provide the same range and scope of endoscopic services including therapeutic ERCP. Some also perform expert EUS and related procedures. The physicians are also owners of a state of art endoscopy center which is financially successful. Other ancillary services in the group include an infusion center, pathology lab and an outpatient diagnostic center which performs wireless pill camera studies and other procedures. Current partners are young and busy, with none planning for retirement or departure in the foreseeable future. Income in the group is well above average and the office is recognized for excellent care and outstanding patient experience. You simply will not find a better group to start and build your practice. The Compensation This offer comes as a collection guarantee for 1 year with a practice activation bonus, stipend for those still in training, relocation expenses and a marketing allowance. After the 1 year guarantee is complete, full partnership can be attained. The buy-in for the partnership will be very modest because it is not necessary to buy into the accounts receivable. The standard benefits of health insurance, profit sharing 401-K, and malpractice insurance coverage apply. Texas currently has a good malpractice climate as a result of tort reform and the limitation in pain and suffering compensation.
