MOA / Surgical Assistant

By | March 19, 2021

Busy Medical Office/Surgical Facility looking for a hard worker who is fast to learn and quick on their feet. We are a fast-paced office and therefore this is a physically and mentally demanding job, but you will learn a TON as you will be working directly with doctors, surgeons and patients. Training is hands-on and also fast-paced. Shifts at our office can start as early as 7am or as late as 9am, and can run until anywhere between 4-6pm. We are looking for someone to work 8-10 hour shifts (scheduled paid lunch), on average 4-5 days per week, for an average of 32-42 hours per week. Scrubs and close-toed shoes required.

Applications must include resume with at least 2 references. If your resume says “References available upon request,” please consider this a request and provide your references when you apply. Resumes without references will not be considered.

Please be as detailed as you can with your experience when it comes to assisting doctors, especially if in the field of ophthalmology or optometry.

If you have a CSA Certificate in Medical Device Reprocessing, please include a copy of it with your application and your application will go directly to the surgeons for review. It is also helpful to let us know what sort of EMR (electronic medical records) system(s) you have experience with – our office uses HealthQuest.

Initial interviews will be via Zoom call with our Clinic Manager on Saturday March 20 between 8-9:30 pm and Sunday March 21 between 10am – 1pm. We otherwise perform working interviews – a paid training opportunity for you to showcase your technical and interpersonal skills while learning hands-on what it takes to be a part of our team. We are hoping your working interview will start on Tuesday March 23rd.
