Job Summary
Geisinger is seeking a BC/BE physician in Family Medicine or Internal Medicine-Pediatrics (Med-Peds) to staff our new Clinical Decision Unit (CDU) at Geisinger Medical Center Muncy located in Muncy, PA. The brand-new facility (a joint venture with Highmark) is expected to open in Fall 2021.

Job Duties
The unit: The Geisinger CDU is an outpatient observation unit specifically designed to provide a value-based practice model for ED patients who need additional observational services. CDU patients are medically stable and are expected to be discharged within 24-36 hours.

The practice: The CDU physician is responsible for the care and disposition of patients in the unit. The goal is to disposition all patients who were admitted the previous day. When the day’s clinical work is completed the “CDUist” signs out to the Emergency Physician on duty who actively covers the unit until next morning. Thus, the CDU and EM providers function as a team to manage the CDU patients. To accomplish this effectively, the unit is located contiguous to the ED.

The work-life aspect: CDU practice is a unique opportunity to experience a satisfying and medically challenging practice for physicians looking for more intensity than office-based medicine, but without the work/life stresses of hospital medicine. Additionally, the position has no exposure to night shifts.

At Geisinger,you have an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on your patients’ lives! Everything we do is about caring for our patients, our members, our students, our Geisinger family and our communities.

With Geisinger, you can take advantage of:
