RESIDENCY ANNOUNCEMENT – HOLISTIC HEALTH CLINIC
The Holistic Health Clinic, established in Tacoma, Washington in 1987 is looking to fill a CNME-approved 2-year Bastyr affiliate residency in General Medicine.
We are a very busy, well-organized and productive health care team. Dr. Owen Miller, practicing physician, is our clinical director. We have three associate physicians, three residents, and a medical assistant rounding out our back office staff. Our teamwork approach carries through to inspire a collective wisdom that supports every doctor’s patient care success. The population we serve is diverse and includes patients of all ages and conditions. Treatment modalities are varied, with emphasis placed on diet and other lifestyle modification methods that target disease resolution.
You will receive direct supervision and mentoring by one of our experienced female associate NDs, including didactic activities, case conferences, journal presentations, and chart reviews. In this supportive team environment, you will have the opportunity to learn from all the doctors, including Dr. Miller. You will spend the majority of your time supporting your supervising doctors’ patient care encounters, which are largely women’s health care visits. If that sounds like the job of an MA, you’re both right and wrong; although you will see patients in tandem, that is where the similarities end. The mentoring with each patient and the growing scope of your participation set this position apart and make this opportunity a “must have” for any new ND intending to practice at the highest levels of integrity and productivity.
Administrative responsibilities include but are not limited to: learning the operations of the front desk and dispensary, processing and tracking patient’s labs and treatment plans, and responding to patient’s phone calls. The resident will be given opportunities to undertake additional rotations with clinic providers and to be the primary with acute care patients.
This is a 46-hour per week position. We match Bastyr’s residency salary.
In order to be recognized as a CNME-approved Bastyr affiliate resident, you must submit a Universal Residency Application to the office of Dr. Gary Garcia at Bastyr University and abide by their rules and expectations. You may elect not to participate in the CNME program. The job itself would remain unchanged, while the reporting and the extra continuing education requirements would disappear. Applicants who elect not to participate in the CNME-accredited residency must email a cover letter and curriculum vitae to the clinic’s office manager, Marsha Miller: firstname.lastname@example.org.
