Cosmo Health Center is seeking a BC/BE Family Medicine or Internal Medicine Physician (MD or DO) to expand our dedicated team of professionals! We are a Federally Qualified Health Center focused on working with the underserved that is uniquely poised to serve diverse communities with limited-English proficiency, and practice “local-global” health, serving a large number of refugees and immigrants. Employment opportunity is due to retiring physicians. The best of both worlds – treat patients who are truly in need and appreciative of your work, while still living just on the perimeter of Atlanta with easy access to downtown, parks, tennis and golf. Very family-friendly practice and hours, walking distance from beautiful Historic Norcross.
Must be comfortable with providing the following: preventive and acute care for adults; women’s health including basic pelvic exams and clinical breast exams/referral for screening mammograms; offering support to mid-levels as needed; working with translators/patient navigators; strengthening referrals to our dental site; and evaluating for substance abuse risk and referring to our trained counselors for prevention and treatment as needed. FM candidates should be comfortable treating an occasional pediatric patient, but this will not be the primary focus.
Training can be provided for refugee health exams and immigration exams. Current providers include internal medicine, pediatric, general surgery/general practice physicians; dentist/dental hygienist; and certified counselors. Outpatient only; on-call is telephone only. Typical schedule is 15-20 patients per day.
Must be board-certified/board eligible in Family Medicine or Internal Medicine; must have BLS; PALS/ACLS a plus; will need GA medical license prior to start date. Background or interest in public health is a plus. Basic Spanish, Korean and/or conversational level of other languages a plus.
