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

Job Duties:

This exciting position is split between the clinical decision (observation) unit and the inpatient unit - 10 beds in each unit. Experience a satisfying and medically challenging practice for physicians looking for more acuity than office-based medicine and without the work/life stresses of night shifts.

The CDU:  The Geisinger Clinical Decision Unit (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 physician is responsible for the care and disposition of patients in the clinical decision and inpatient units.  The goal in the CDU 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 the 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.

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:
