Outpatient Preoperative Clinic

Rush University Medical Center
Chicago, IL

Rush University Medical Center is currently recruiting for an Advanced Practice Provider to join their Preoperative Clinic.

The Rush Preoperative clinic evaluates patients planned for elective surgeries who may have a range of medical issues. The aim of the clinic is to identify and mitigate preoperative risk and medically optimize the patients prior to surgery, reduce same day cancellations and postoperative complications. We work closely with the referring surgical departments and anesthesia to achieve these goals. The clinic has a collegial atmosphere and uses evidence-based protocols. Core staff includes 2 physicians, 4 medical assistants, a RN office manager and front office staff with medical residents rotating through the clinic. The clinic is expanding, and the addition of an Advance Practice Provider will be a valued addition to the clinic.

The APP will promote collaboration between multiple disciplines to ensure cost effective and quality patient care. The individual who holds this position will exemplify the Rush mission, vision and values and act in accordance with the policies, procedures, guidelines of Rush, including the Rush University Medical Group Customer Service standards. Successful candidates will also meet all other state and federal regulatory practice and accreditation standards.

Rush has over 400 APPs across the enterprise that provide comprehensive patient care each day autonomously and in collaboration with other members of the health care team. With 2 Directors of Advanced Practice and 27 Lead APPs across the system, Rush’s vision is to have every APP practicing at full scope and top of license.
