Job Description

The experienced Advanced Practice Practitioner will work with General Surgeons specializing in GI procedures in the GI Surgery Clinic in Redwood City. The GI Surgery Clinic is part of the Digestive Health Center at Stanford in Redwood City, CA. The role of the APP will be to work collaboratively with the surgeons in the clinic to provide pre- and post-op assessments, wound care, ensure patients receive informed consent for procedures, and identify opportunities for patients to receive prompt interdisciplinary care. The APP will be instrumental in building the General Surgery practice specifically related to GI procedures including hernia repairs, Nissan fundoplication's, etc. The APP will support providers during their clinics and have at least two independent clinics per week. This is a fast-paced clinic with providers, Fellows, Residents and occasional Medical Students as participants. 
Additional duties include answering screened patient messages (CRMs), patient education, and prescription refills. Strong communication skills, and two or more years' experience in either General Surgery or Gastroenterology is highly desirable. 
The clinic is based on the team-cell model, where the APP and RN are directly involved with a subset of patients, a designated Medical Assistant, and specific providers. The APP will be a team player yet be able to work independently. The GI Surgery Clinic support team consists of high functioning Flow Coordinators, a strong Registered Nurse, and Medical Assistants who understand the needs of the providers. This is really a great team, and an opportunity for the right APP to work with some of the best Surgeons in the Bay Area.
