The Kaiser Permanente Greater Sacramento Department of Sports Medicine is seeking a full-time physician to join our established team in Elk Grove, California. The position will be 0.6 FTE in the Sports Medicine clinic, and 0.4 FTE in the department of the candidate’s primary residency. We anticipate the opportunity to expand hours spent in the Sports Medicine clinic as the department continues to grow over time.
The ideal candidate will have Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Pediatrics, or Emergency Medicine Board Certification with additional CAQ in Sports Medicine. This is an amazing opportunity to work in an established center with Kaiser Permanente Sports Medicine covering athletes of all skill levels, from the elite athlete to the weekend warrior. We evaluate and treat sports and activity-related musculoskeletal conditions in a diverse physically active population and care for Kaiser Permanente and the community’s athletes. Candidates should be comfortable and skilled in sports medicine treatment across the age spectrum and be able to appropriately evaluate and treat back pain in athletes. This position will also require a thorough understanding of sports related concussion management, and integration with an evolving multi-disciplinary sports concussion program in the Sacramento Valley. Diagnostic and procedural musculoskeletal ultrasound experience is also a required skill for this role. The candidate will join a team of on-site physical therapists (predominantly PT/ATC’s) in treating athletes and physically active Kaiser Permanente members, allowing them to return to an active lifestyle or their sport of choice. There will also be opportunity to work with Kaiser Permanente’s community sports events and activities. Candidate needs to be able to collaborate well with our Orthopedic Surgeons and Physical Medicine/Rehabilitation departments.
The Elk Grove Promenade Sports Medicine center was opened in November 2011, as a part of a new outpatient medical office building in Elk Grove, CA. The center is equipped with on-site MSK ultrasound and a large rehabilitation gym with excellent equipment.
This physician will join our existing full-time sports medicine physician in the Elk Grove Promenade facility. Kaiser Permanente Sports Medicine has become well-respected in local and surrounding communities as the place for athletes and other active patients to receive evaluation and treatment. The sports medicine staff has also been extensively involved in community events. This is a great opportunity to continue outreach with local community events and schools, provide education in the community, continue to provide/expand medical coverage of events/races, further develop injury prevention programs, and further develop fitness testing and exercise prescription programs.
Sacramento boasts warm weather and year-round recreational activities.
The American College of Sports Medicine recently ranked Sacramento as one of the Top Ten Cities on their Health and Fitness Index. There is an active artist community, including art galleries, museums, and music productions.
