Work as part of an Emergency Medicine team to improve outcomes for patients in a dynamic Emergency Department. In this role as an Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner, the provider will work alongside EM Physicians, other EM APPs, and EM nurses and staff to take care of patients.

Although the focus of this role is primarily clinical, there will be Career Development opportunities with access to get involved in Education, Administration and Leadership.

The beautiful Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina has a moderate climate with all four seasons and a cost of living well below the national average. The Blue Ridge Mountains and Parkway are a 1-2 hour drive to the north and west, and North Carolina's beaches are close enough to enjoy during long weekends. The region is on an upward trajectory that still maintains its Southern roots and small town feel. Although the region is traditionally Southern in its friendliness, it has an international vibe with an array of festivals and a wide variety of restaurants and entertainment options.
