This position offers the variety of working both in the clinic and hospital settings. Hours will be Monday through Friday day hours, with a weekend and holiday call rotation of 1:4; the weekend rotation will consist of rounding in the St. Cloud Hospital on Saturday and taking call on Sunday.

While in clinic workflow will include follow-up visits for patients who have been on the inpatient rehab unit as well as patients with orthopaedic injuries, spine-related pain and dysfunction, occupational injuries and overuse syndromes, neurogenic bowel/bladder, pressure sore management, spasticity management, and other chronic pain disorders.  In this role, you will evaluate patients for appropriate injection therapies, including epidural steroid injections, facet injections, and trigger point injections.

The PM&R Department is an integral specialty within our comprehensive Neuroscience Program, which includes the services of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Pain Medicine, Stroke and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

What’s so great about living in St. Cloud, Minnesota?

On a map, Greater St. Cloud looks like a group of Central Minnesota communities with the Mississippi River winding through, somewhere between the bright lights of Minneapolis and the starry nights of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. 

Sure, we’re that, but that’s just geography.  We are the regional center for commerce, healthcare, arts, entertainment, and education.  We boast bustling downtowns, major businesses, and good jobs.  We have tranquil, diverse neighborhoods, with a cost of living well below that of urban settings.  But when urban is what you want, we’re only about an hour from everything the Twin Cities has to offer.

  • Mini-Metro of 130,000 people
  • Four-season recreation
  • Theatre and arts
  • Excellent school options
  • Family Friendly
  • Four colleges
  • Lakes area
