PA – Orthopedics
Rochester, MN

What if your career could change your life?

Working at Mayo Clinic is making a difference. It's providing the highest quality patient care by placing the needs of patients first. At Mayo Clinic, you'll discover a culture of teamwork, professionalism and mutual respect — and most importantly, a life-changing career.

An exciting practice opportunity exists for a Physician Assistant to join the Mayo Clinic Department of Orthopedic Surgery, one of the largest and best ranked in the country. Orthopedics at Mayo has developed an outstanding reputation for quality care, innovation, education and research.

Provision of care may include evaluation of new or established patients; ordering and interpretation of diagnostic tests to formulate a diagnosis; patient education; assistance in the operating room; and postoperative rounds. With experience, the PA will eventually develop an independent supervised clinical practice for selected patients. Even though this particular position specializes in shoulder and elbow surgery, the PA will also have the opportunity to cover other services and areas of Orthopedics when the primary consultant is away or assigned to non-clinical activities, which helps maintain a wider area of knowledge and practice within Orthopedics.

This position truly is a quality track for growth and career development. The PA will have the opportunity for continued education from the very best orthopedic surgeons in the country. Our Department does offer a comprehensive continuous education curriculum, as well as access to research and publications, administration and leadership activities. Mayo Clinic not only offers more resources than any other institution, but also provides an attractive compensation package, professional stability, and a healthy work-life balance. We firmly believe that the PA/NP selected for this position will excel in the development of a fulfilling, well-balanced practice.

Qualified Physician Assistants must be graduates of an accredited Physician Assistant program with current PA certification by NCCPA and registration as a PA by the Minnesota State Board of Medical Practice.
