Hospitalist Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant – Oceanside, CA

To our prospective teammates,

I’m the interim medical director for Tri-City Medical Center, located in Oceanside, California. I’ve been a part of Sound Physicians for over four years, helping maintain and grow our hospitalist programs nationwide. We are looking for a hospitalist advanced practice provider (APP) and welcome any nurse practitioners or physician assistant clinicians with hospitalist experience. I’d like to share more about who we are and what we do — specifically about our people, practice, and purpose — as you consider your options:

  • We’re a closely-knit, established 21-clinician team with physicians, two advanced practice providers, and a CPN.
  • Our team comprises highly experienced clinicians with a few newer doctors. Many of the part-time clinicians own private practice clinics, too.
  • Oceanside is 40 miles north of San Diego and 90 miles south of Los Angeles. The community is the quintessential definition of a Southern California beach town.
  • The laid-back coastal city rests along the edge of the Pacific Ocean, offering year-round pleasant temperatures and sunshine as the backdrop for endless adventures.
  •  The hospital is a full-service, acute-care public hospital with 365 licensed medical beds and a 28-bed ICU.
  •  The annual salary for this daytime, seven on/off position, is $150K.
  •  Advanced Practice Providers must have inpatient/hospitalist practice experience post-training; new graduates are not eligible for this role.
  • Tri-City is one of the largest employers in North San Diego County, servicing the three major cities of Oceanside, Vista, and Carlsbad.
  • Benefits include medical, dental, vision, life, and AD&D insurance, long- and short-term disability, 401k with match, paid medical malpractice and tail coverage, and annual CME allowance.
  • Our hospitalist practice is collaborative; some clinicians have worked here for over 20 years. The team is deeply embedded in the hospital; some are physician advisors and chief of staff. They are very proud of their community.
  • We value and support growth and development in our hospital medicine practice, allowing you to explore new opportunities locally and within the broader medical group.

People enjoy living in Oceanside, California, for its picturesque beaches, vibrant coastal lifestyle, and moderate climate, offering ample outdoor activities like surfing, hiking, and beachcombing. Its proximity to major urban centers like San Diego and Los Angeles also provides residents with diverse cultural and entertainment experiences.
