Surgicalist – General Surgery

Work Hard!  Play Hard!
  • Would you like to be part of a group of general surgeons who value a balanced life style?
  • Does being a leader in surgical care align with your goals?
  • Do you practice excellence in your surgical and patient care?
  • If you are thinking yes to these questions, then you may be the surgeon we are seeking to join our group.

Premier Surgical Associates is the largest private practice surgical group in this region of East Tennessee with 27 general, bariatric, and vascular surgeons and surgical oncologists. We are searching for one Surgicalist who can share our mission of excellence with a great life balance.

Our surgicalists work 7:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday-Friday handling in-house consults, ER calls and all the resulting surgery. You’ll start surgery first thing every morning picking up the cases held over during the night. Our surgicalist service is supported by our PAs who see consults, make rounds and then join you in the Operating Room. Each of our facilities is fully supported by hospital intensivists and a full range of various sub-specialty support. You will have the tools and support you need to provide outstanding care and make it home to your family in time for dinner.

You will have no more than one night call per week and one weekend per month.

Our practice, Premier Surgical Associates, is located in Knoxville, Tennessee, in southeastern U.S. in the shadows of the Great Smoky Mountains. Opportunities abound for outdoor recreation in the mountains, lakes, and rivers. Topflight golf courses, division one athletics, and convenient access to travel are a bonus. We attend the symphony, theatre, art, ballet, and top-level collegiate sports. Knoxville enjoys a moderate climate with extended spring and fall seasons. Affordable housing, excellent schools, and below average cost of living round out the complete package of living in this area.

Our compensation package includes an attractive base salary, production bonus and the ability to pick up additional night and weekend shifts with appropriate additional compensation.

Company benefits include pension, 401(k) plan, malpractice insurance, CME, vacation, and health insurance.

Have a varied and challenging practice.  Work as hard as you want and be home to see the kids.  If this position appeals to you, please let us know by sending your CV for our review.

We will be happy to answer your questions about your possibility of becoming a member of our surgical group!
