ABOUT THE POSITION

Our practice has a heavy orthopedic / sports emphasis but new hire must be open to treating a wide variety of diagnosis types ie; Pediatric to Geriatric, Neuro including some Post-stroke, SCI, TBI and some Vestibular. We do very little with wound care and are not set up for internal pelvic floor treatment.

We don't subscribe to any specific method but utilize many manual techniques learned in our general education in PT school. Every patient is seen by a PT for manual or other "hands-on" work each and every patient visit.

We do a small amount of aquatic and utilize an offsite local swimming pool.

Your responsibilities include manage and provide effective and efficient patient care in busy outpatient clinic. Provide sports medicine coverage on sidelines to local high school athletes.

Why you should come work for us:

We have a very personable small business environment with a high patient satisfaction rate. We are very involved in our area with a great reputation within our health community.

We have a strong sports and industrial emphasis but see a wide variety of diagnosis types due to our rural location. We are heavily involved with both high schools in town and the applicant will be with the athletes on the sidelines at local football and basketball events. We have a great team approach and offer opportunities for entrepreneurial  minded PTs.

We are located in Elko, Nevada the largest Gold Producing area of the nation and as such have a booming local economy with a mix of Western / Cowboy culture and Basque influence. Big local events include The National Cowboy Poetry Festival in the winter and National Basque Festival in the summer. We are located centrally between the two large metropolitan areas of Reno, NV and Salt Lake City, UT so big city events and attractions are easily accessible and only a few hours drive away.

Outdoor enthusiasts won't be disappointed with the beautiful Ruby Mountain Range in our backyard and only 20 minutes outside our clinic doors. Ten Thousand foot plus peaks provide great recreational opportunities like hiking, biking, fishing, hunting and camping. Heli-Skiing and snowmobiling are popular activities in the Ruby's during the winter months.
