OB/GYN locum needed in IA starting in August

Specialty: Obstetrics and Gynecology Job #: JN -042024-19309 State: IA Remuneration: Not Specified Type: Locum Tenens
Highlights
  • Dates of Need: August 1st - Ongoing 

  •  

  • Worksite location:

  • Iowa

  •  

  • Reason for Coverage:

  • We have 1 provider leaving our group in August to take an OB hospitalist position in the Quad Cities. We also have an independent physician who is retiring in August – he solely delivers at Allen Hospital and we have seen some of his patients transition their care to our group. We also have a physician who is retiring from full-time practice at the end of the year, but may be willing to stay on in a limited capacity.


  • Work Schedule:

  • Our physicians (when not responsible for weekend call) work Monday – Thursday. They are normally in clinic between 8:30 and 4:30pm. We do weekday call from 7am to 7am the next day and then our weekend call is Friday – Sunday 7am to 7am.  Our provider on call during the week is located at our Dale Clinic office in the hospital and has a reduced clinic schedule consisting of OB appointments and NST reads. They are the point person for all physician patients on Labor and Delivery during their 24 hour call shift.

  •  

  • Is call involved: 

  • Yes – we would need the locum provider to take an equal share of call. Our group in August will be at 1:5 call so we would need someone to take a share of 1:6 call. Beginning in January we would be looking at locum support to maintain 1:6 call for our employed providers which may require additional call from a locum provider or multiple locums to ensure we can maintain the desired 1:6 call.

  •  

  • What is the call schedule: 

  • During the week, call is 24 hour coverage from 7am to 7am the next day. On weekends, call begins at 7am on Friday and runs through 7am Monday. We do not require in house call coverage – the provider just has to be able to make it to the hospital with a 30 minute response time once L&D or ED needs the provider available in house. Triage patients presenting to L&D do not require a physician to come in house and may depend on the situation if the provider feels like they need to come in to address and assess.

  •  

  • Monthly Deliveries:

  • Our practice averages 1,000 annually or around 85 deliveries per month. We have a group of 6 delivering midwives in addition to our physicians. We work to spread our physician patients between the providers to try and keep monthly delivery volumes per physician to 12 deliveries. If all physicians are at 12 OB deliveries for the month then we assess for adding 1 each to the provider from there. Our average physician volume has been around 60 total deliveries of the 85 total managed by the group.

  •  

  • Willing to wait for license: 

  • Yes, would need license to start
