The hospital also serves patients of many other needs. The hospital maintains an academic affiliation with Albert Einstein Medical College of Yeshiva University.

The department of surgery at North Central Bronx Hospital is looking for full time PA positions for night coverage. The night PA will be the only in-house surgical provider for the hospital. The PA will be supervised by the on-call Attending Surgeon. Some experience in general surgery is therefore a requirement. The PA will take care of inpatients admitted to the surgical service whether in the ICU, step down unit and on the floors as well as provide surgical consultation in the ED and on inpatients.

NCBH is a community hospital located in the north Bronx. Surgical residents from Montefiore Medical Center rotate here as well as PA students from Pace University.

The role of the night PA is to take care of surgical inpatients, evaluate consults in the ED and inpatient setting and to present and discuss the management with the attending on call. These tasks can be further broken down under:

  • Assist with post-operative management
  • Make rounds with the attending surgeon and resident staff if needed.
