First Physicians Group of Sarasota Memorial Health Care System is seeking to employ multiple Physician Assistants to join an established and busy practice of (4) four Interventional Cardiologists in Venice, FL.  This is a highly productive practice that provides traditional interventional & structural procedures.

The practice is located in Venice, aptly named one of Coastal Living’s  "Best Places to Live on the Coast" in 2020.

Once a fishing and farming community, this city is in the heart of Sarasota County and has blossomed into a vacation destination, where families go to the beach, hunt for prehistoric shark teeth, shop through a revitalized downtown, bike around the Venetian Waterway Trail and go fishing at the Venice Pier. The area is known for the arts, great restaurants, nationally recognized beaches, excellent schools and a wide variety of activities for all ages.

First Physicians Group is Florida's Gulf Coast leader in primary and specialty care with an impressive 26-year history in the community. With 320 Physicians and Advanced Practice Providers in 30  different specialties and 54 practice locations, it is backed by the tradition and strength of Sarasota Memorial Hospital. 

We are building a new 350,000 sq. ft. hospital in Venice w/110  private acute-care patient suites, 25 bed Emergency Care Center and 8 surgical suites. The new hospital is on target to open in November 2021.    As the community grows, SMH-Venice is already making plans to expand its campus. It has the capacity to more than double in size to 300 private patient suites, 16 surgical suites and a 50-bed ER.

  Role & Responsibilities:

  • Full time employed position, primarily working Monday – Friday, 8AM to 5PM.
  • Call will be 1:5 on weekends
  • The APPs will work in the clinic and hospital setting, rotating one month at each location.
  • While in the clinic setting, APPs initiate all new patient visits and will see patients in tandem with the physicians.  No procedures are required in the clinic.  The Cardiologists do their own stress testing.
  • In the Hospital, APPs will perform consults for admissions, daily visits, initiate all discharges and cover “STEMI call” with the Hospital physician. The Cardiologist will follow the APPs consults, round and sign all documentation.  No assistance with procedures is required in the hospital.  
  • Cardiology experience is preferred but not required as the Cardiologists will provide training onsite.
  • Candidates will have successfully completed an approved accredited program as a Physician Assistant with appropriate certification exams. 

Highlights of the opportunity:

  • Competitive salary
  • No contract or non-compete clause, candidates sign offer letters only.
  • Full array of benefits offered including health, dental, vision, long term disability, PTO, 403B Retirement Plan, and much more. 
  • As an employee of a public, State of Florida organization, APPs are entitled to sovereign immunity.
  • We are a  not-for-profit  organization.
