Full Description:
Excellent, established and large private practice group looking for full-time general anesthesiologist to replace retiring MD. One of the few and most stable private groups remaining in NC. The salary package is very competitive and comes with an excellent benefits package as well. In addition to base salary there is plenty of opportunity to pick up extra call to supplement income. The group really emphasizes lifestyle and extra call is totally voluntary. This is a two year partnership track, no buy-in required. Six weeks vacation first year and seven weeks second year. Partners get 9-10 weeks/year. Typically take 1 weekday call per week with post-call day off and 4-5 weekends/yr with post-call day off. Case mix includes general, orthopedics with plenty of regional, OB, cardiothoracic (basic echo skills a plus but not required), plastics, neuro, peds and dental. No trauma. MD's rarely cover their own cases but if interested in doing so more often this is negotiable. The group covers three local hospitals as well as four ambulatory centers. All call is from home unless you reside more than 30 minutes from the hospital. We would consider an employed position with no non-clinical duties.
