Job Description

Outstanding opportunity to join Kansas Gastroenterology, LLC, a well-established independent GI group. The practice added their fourth associate in the summer of 2018 and will add 2 more doctors in 2020/2021 due to expanding referral base. The physicians are assisted by 5 PAs and 1 NPs, providing a full range of GI services and ancillary services including endoscopy, anesthesia, pathology, capsule, lab, and imaging.

The practice is on campus of both of Wichita's competing Level I Trauma Centers. The group's primary office in a beautiful new building with a state of the art Endoscopy center in Wichita's upscale Eastern Suburbs.

Hospital Call will be every 5-6 weeks and will be assisted by a full time experienced PA. The practice is broad and busy enough to allow opportunity to carve subspecialty niche if desired.

* Attractive compensation package and partner track
* Partner incomes in the top quartile of Medical Group Management compensation benchmarks
* Flexibility to allow different styles of work-life career choices:
Option 1: outpatient GI with no inpatient responsibilities. This means very little, if any, call/weekends.
Option 2: GI Hospitalist with no outpatient responsibilities. This will mean seven on, seven off with minimal
outpatient clinic for perhaps hospital followups, if needed.
Option 3: Outpatient/research position. This will be a hybrid position with responsibility for expanding our ongoing
research program in addition to outpatient clinic track or traditional GI track.
Option 4: traditional GI (inpatient and outpatient).

Best fit will be a BC or recently-trained, BE physician interested in building a general GI practice. To meet credentialing criteria, candidates must be residency and fellowship trained in ACGME accredited programs. This position is eligible for J-1 visa assistance, but does not meet criteria for H1-B assistance.
