Common patients include chest pain, abdominal pain, infectious work ups, syncope, transplant patients, stroke/tia work ups, and other medical conditions requiring short term clinical care. The AP works independently as the primary care provider, though consultation with physician support is always available.The AP will provide safe, high quality, comprehensive care to patients in a fast paced and dynamic observation unit that emphasizes patient flow and throughput. The AP will complete focused history and physicals on patients, order medications, order and interpret labs, EKG/telemetry, and other diagnostic studies, as well as coordinate patient care with other disciplines.A successful AP will have strong, independent medical decision making skills, advanced skill in multi-tasking and have the ability to adapt well to changing environments. Penn Medicine is looking for flexible, friendly and patient focused individuals to work in this large, academic teaching hospital.
