IL 2016-09-27 Physician Assistant
Job Description: Bastian Voice Institute (a tertiary-care laryngology practice) is seeking a physician assistant to help us with our nationally-recognized practice. The person we seek to join our team does not need to have had prior otolaryngology or laryngology experience. He or she must, however, have strong interest in disorders of voice, swallowing, and breathing, as well as in both patient interaction and some procedural medicine. The position would begin with a "fellowship" flavor, with eventual diverse responsibilities in patient care. The PA would do a lot of diagnostic endoscopy including laryngeal videostroboscopy; assisting other surgical procedures on occasion in office and operating room; laryngeal Botox injection for Spasmodic Dysphonia; telephone triage for medical issues; EMR and other records management; occasional hospital rounds and/or consultation; and other tasks as needed for most effective team functioning. Bastian Voice Institute currently comprises two laryngologists and a speech/language pathologist. This practice includes major and growing caseloads of vibration-induced injury of the vocal folds, often in singers, and some of whom require vocal fold microsurgery; persons who undergo regular Botox injections for laryngeal dystonia (spasmodic dysphonia); and individuals with vocal fold paralysis, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP), benign and malignant laryngeal tumors, and functional (including non-organic) disorders. We also manage a large caseload of persons with dysphagia, airway stenosis, and neurogenic cough. One "tool" BVI clinicians use is the "macro-phenomenology" of the functions of the upper aerodigestive tract. We can train a prospective clinician to a very high level of expertise, provided that person can match pitch and has a genuine interest in voice and breathing phenomenology. While not necessarily required, some sort of experience as a singer, would signal the aptitudes we seek. In summary, we are looking for a physician assistant who: 1. has strong interest in and APTITUDE for the diverse kinds of training and job opportunities described above. 2. is interested in a practice with a lot of patient interaction and procedural medicine. 3. uses spoken and written English well. 4. has a strong service mentality and commitment to personal integrity. Salary will be competitive and also include a productivity component. Individuals who fit criteria should review our website (www.bastianvoice.com) as well as our teaching website www.laryngopedia.com, and then contact both Susan Leibforth (susan.leibforth@bastianvoice.com), our practice manager, and Robert Bastian (robert.bastian@bastianvoice.com), medical director of Bastian Voice Institute.
