Exceptional opportunity for a medical Optometrist with world-class co-management center
Pacific Cataract and Laser Institute (PCLI), a principle-centered multi-site cataract and refractive surgery co-management center, seeks a full-time medical optometric physician to provide care in a number of our surgical facilities in Washington state.
This position requires travel to multiple PCLI offices rotating primarily within the Puget Sound area—including Silverdale, Bellingham, Bellevue, and Tacoma. In the heart of the Pacific Northwest, this region is unsurpassed with its combination of mountains, old-growth forests, saltwater coastline, islands, rivers and freshwater lakes. In addition, there will be some travel to our offices outside the Puget Sound region that will include overnight stays to cover for vacations, illness, and other events. The candidate will need to live centralized to ground and air transportation options.
PCLI provides a unique opportunity to work in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Although we have 38 ODs and 15 surgeons, each of our 17 clinics and surgery centers has an intimate feel. As part of a team that delivers superb surgical and medical care, the judgment and clinical skills of our ODs is highly valued by the ophthalmologists they work with. We use the latest diagnostic and surgical technology to provide state-of-the-art care. And our optometric physicians are encouraged to practice at the highest level, performing advanced procedures where state law allows. While our professionals are dedicated to their work, we place great value on family life. Our typical work hours are 8 – 5 Monday to Thursday and 8 – 1 on Friday. An important part of our culture is being a positive influence on the world around us. One of the ways we do this is by providing compassionate free care to patients in need in our facilities, and many of our providers and staff regularly volunteer on eye missions.
Clinically skilled and residency trained, or the equivalent ocular disease and surgical co-management experience
