OUR MISSION: To fulfill President Lincoln's promise – "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan" – by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's Veterans. How would you like to become a part of a team providing compassionate care to Veterans?

The Kansas City VA is embarking on a journey of moving beyond performance measure and becoming the Healthcare System Veterans Trust and Choose.


Our patients depend on us and we depend on professionals like you.


If you are interested in being a part of a LEAN organization and putting other's needs before your own this may be the organization for you. Yours might be the first face they see when they come through our doors. Yours might be the voice they hear right after a surprise diagnosis.  Yours might be the eyes they look into as they are pushed in a wheelchair to a frightening procedure.  Your attitude reflects us and everything we are proud of in this organization. By applying for this position you have chosen to help serve our patients and we appreciate you.


With the initiation of cultural change, along with knowledge and tools for change, the Kansas City VA will continue to move towards a practice of continuous improvement.  In the endeavor, we recognize that this change will not occur suddenly, that dedicated individuals like yourself will be required, that leadership involvement is necessary, and employee engagement paramount. 


As a 157 bed medical, surgical, and psychiatric facility, the Kansas City VA provides comprehensive health care through primary care and tertiary care in subspecialty medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is also a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri Kansas City. Take a closer look at Kansas City at www.thinkkc.com.

The physician will report to the Primary Care Physician Lead (Program Manager). The physician will work independently, caring for outpatients in an established clinic. Specialists and other primary care providers are available for consultation. The physician shall be expected to cooperate and collaborate fully with other staff members in meeting the medical care needs of VAMC patients. The physician will participate in medical duties and functions related to quality of care review and process improvement. The physician may be asked to participate on various committees and task forces as assigned and attend required meetings. The physician will serve as a collaborative physician for assigned Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistants.

·         Ages of adult patients served may vary greatly and include young, middle-aged, and older patients.

·         Although this position will not have the duties of a supervisor, the incumbent will serve as a clinic lead collaborating with the clinic team, clinic nurse manager and service line leaders to optimize clinic operations.

·         The provider will manage a panel of patients sized according to VHA panel modeling guidelines. Panel will be predominately or inclusive of only female veterans, but cross coverage of other veterans will be involved.
