Now Hiring - Volunteer

Medical Director

Position is for: 10 hours</month

 

Reports to: Board of Directors alongside Executive Director

Supervises:  Nurse Manager and Medical Team Members

The Medical Director’s professional license will be responsible for the practice of medicine at the Next Step. The Medical Director may be either an MD or DO.  No specialty is required but preferably a doctor who has some experience/knowledge/training with female reproduction, for example a Family Practitioner, Internist, OBGYN, Emergency Room Doctor, General Practitioner, etc…

 

Must be Licensed and in good standing with the state medical board:

 

  • Reading Ultrasounds Scans.   If the Medical Director cannot read scans, there are two options:

 

                                    1.  He/she gets trained to read scans.  (available upon request)

                                                                                    or

                                    2.  You recruit a physician to read the scans such as an OBGYN or Radiologist.

 

  • Job description and agreement.  

 

  • Time Commitment:  At the beginning, the Medical Director will need to take time to review and approve the medical policies and procedures prepared by the Nurse Manager.  The Medical Director will need to sign the Standing Orders and approve of the medical personal.  The Medical Director will also need to ensure that the RN, or whoever is trained to scan (NP, PA), has been assessed for competency and is ready to scan unsupervised.  Once the clinic is up and running, the Medical Director will need to be available for phone conferences as needed (infrequently) with the Nurse Manager and to read the scans electronically, preferably within 24 hours.  It would be an added bonus if the Medical Director could come on site at times, to review charts, supervise staff, etc., but if time does not allow, all this oversight can be done remotely.

 

Medical malpractice insurance:  Next Step must have a medical malpractice policy that covers the medical services provided on site.  If the Medical Director’s own insurance does not cover him/her while he/she is volunteering, then Next Step can endorse coverage for the Medical Director on to its policy for an additional premium.

 

Medical Malpractice concerns:  Due to the limited nature of the medical services provided at Next Step, the risk of liability is limited as well.  Services are limited to urine pregnancy testing, limited obstetric ultrasounds to confirm a viable intrauterine pregnancy (by well-trained and proven competent medical personnel), and perhaps STI testing and treatment.  A woman who is bleeding or cramping does not meet the criteria to receive an ultrasound from Next Step.  The biggest risk is a missed ectopic.  NIFLA (National Institute of Family and Life Advocates) is aware of four such claims since we commenced ultrasound services almost 20 years ago, and in all four there was a subsequent provider that was culpable.  Our trained providers handled the situations with caution and when they did not see what they normally expected to see on the ultrasound, they gave the patient ectopic and miscarriage precautions and referred them to their medical provider/emergency room.  So the risk of liability is low, but only if the sonographer is trained well according to national guidelines.  The NIFLA course and Soundview Imaging hands-on supervision is highly recommend.
