The doctor feels it will be okay for me to start my job on monday. Even in the job description it stated the ability to sit down for long periods of time. There is no filing since all patient records are on the PC. My main duties would consist of scheduling appts, and obtaining and updating patient info. The practice is made up of residents and board certified docs as well as faculty. It is teaching opportunitsy to Brown school gradutates to learn how to run their own family medical practice. There is no billing or anything. There are 15 docs daily in each of the 3 divisions, and some are "faculty" so very rarely do they see patients. My last job was very physically demanding as a vet assistant. Cats and dogs scratch bit etc and trying to keep a 150 pound evil dog on an elevated table was no easy task being I am 99 pounds and 4'9.5" Both my surgeon, RA doc, ENT and my GI are affiliated with the hospital I am going to be working for. My shift will end at 4:30 and if I have to leave 15 mins or so early for a DR appt I will and legally I dont think they can reprimand me for that. One paper I filled out was for "demigraphics" to see if they are interviewing disabled or ethnic backgrounds. I didnt have to fill it out, but I did say disabled on mine and you didnt have to put your name on it but I chose to do so. I know its illegal to ask things like that but I figured what the heck...whats the worst thing that could happen. I did make my name quite illegible though
