Hi all I am a soon to be PA looking for any job leads in Central Oregon. I graduate in August and have a interest in a ton of different areas but my background is in interventional radiology, cardiac cath and vascular surgery prior to PA school. Thanks Dave

St. Charles Health System is the only hospital system in Central Oregon.

 

St. Charles is big on having PA's as Hospitalists and ER mid-levels. BMC and Mosaic are also two large clinics in the area to look at. PA's in Central Oregon usually have a fairly easy time finding a job, even as a new-grad. There's many NP's, but most of the clinics/hospital systems prefer PA's for anything other than FP and UC. 

 

I'm an ER Tech at St. Charles.. I'll try to find out more info in those specific specialties you listed after I come back from vacation.

Thanks buddy. I have been looking at all of the medical groups you mentioned but all the openings im seeing advertised want 2+ years experience. Im guessing there are more jobs out there and it just takes networking to find them. Enjoy your vacation. I look forward to hearing any leads you might have. ER is definitely a interest too !! Dave

Not too long ago honestly. Within the last year they've transitioned from fast-track to being actual ED providers. We don't have a single NP in our ER after our last one left last year. We have 5 PA's that I can think of at the top of my head. There's several on call as well. 

 

I personally know we have a new grad ER PA.

St. Charles came under new leadership this past year, so I believe that may be some of it.

 

ER/ICU RN's were able to become NP's while still being employed by St. Charles, so that certainly led to NP's owning the ER for a while. Gotta love those online programs eh? ;)
