The Physician Assistant will primarily be assisting in the operating room an estimation of 40% to 60%. Cases are chest masses/cancers, therefore mostly lung, but also esophagus and mediastinal masses. Cases mostly done via VATS, requiring intensive participation of the first asst. Some cancer knowledge and interest would be good.

Shifts will likely be 7 am to 3 or 4 pm. The day starts with inpatient care, though most patients may be home by the end of the week, therefore later start when no patients in house. Two to three operative days per week, the rest clinic. Most Fridays very short. Weekly tumor board meetings, PA not required to attend but certainly can.
