Breast Surgeon in Little Rock, Arkansas
The Surgical Clinic of Central Arkansas is seeking a Breast Fellowship trained surgeon to join their multi-specialty surgical clinic. There are 14 surgeons in the practice and only one is a breast surgeon.
The Surgical Clinic of Central Arkansas is the oldest and largest surgical referral clinic in the state. They provide comprehensive general surgical care as well as multi-specialty surgical care to the entire state of Arkansas and the surrounding areas.
The need for recruitment is due to the overwhelming need in the community for additional breast surgeons.
There are currently very few surgeons available to meet the demand and the existing physician has an excessively busy practice.
He is seeing an average of 250 patients in 2.5 clinic days and performing over 38 surgeries per week. The recruited surgeon will have the opportunity to step into a full practice just based on the referrals from the existing surgeon.
This opportunity is very flexible and the candidate can determine whether they prefer an employment model v. a private-practice model. There is no general surgery or trauma call required with this position.
In addition to the excellent surgical opportunity that is available, there is much that the community of Little Rock has to offer. It is located in Central Arkansas with access to many outdoor activities as well as cultural experiences. It is easy to understand why Arkansas is called the Natural State from the many rivers, lakes, parks, hiking trails and camping sites readily available and in close proximity. Little Rock boasts the Little Rock Zoo, Arkansas Arts Center, Arkansas Symphony, The Repertory Theater and The William J. Clinton Presidential Library, to name a few.
All physician positions are for Board Certified or Board Eligible MDs or DOs. This opportunity does not qualify for a J-1 visa waiver. All physicians must be able to obtain Arkansas licensure before they begin practicing. All physician applicants must complete a Pre-application form, provide copies of their DEA number, copies of state medical licenses (except for residents) and provide professional references that will allow us to do a background check before they are brought in for an interview.
Interested candidates please call or submit your CV via email to further discuss this opportunity.

BHMC-LR has always been the leader in heart care and heart transplantation. The need for donor hearts far exceeds the availability. BHMC-LR now offers the latest technology for helping the 5,000,000 Americans suffering from congestive heart failure - the Heart Mate. The HeartMate device is implanted alongside the patient's heart to help the natural heart's pumping capability when required, for activities such as climbing the stairs. The HeartMate allows patients once confined to the ICU to return home and live with very few restrictions while awaiting a transplant. This lowers the costs to the patient and may improve their overall well-being. BAPTIST HEALTH Medical Center - Little Rock was the first hospital in Arkansas to implant this life saving device.
