Does Planned Parenthood offer continuing education for licensed medical staff?

Yes! Full-time Physicians, Clinicians (Nurse Practitioners or Physician Assistants) and RNs are allotted $1,500 and four paid days per year.

What are the opportunities for growth?

Each health center has a Lead Clinician who is the senior medical person on staff. We have always promoted from within for this important role. Opportunities for growth include advancement in medical skills, leadership roles, and mentoring others.

Are there bonuses?

We offer a generous retention bonus to Clinicians (Nurse Practitioners or Physician Assistants) who work at any of our Riverside or Imperial County health centers. This bonus can be used for loan repayment or in any way the employee prefers.

Do you have a credentialing process?

Yes we do.

Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest (PPPSW), like other health care organizations, is responsible for ensuring individuals providing patient care are qualified and competent to do so. Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA), California Department of Health and Human Services and other oversight organizations require that members of the medical and allied health staff be credentialed and privileged in order to provide services to our patients.

Separately from the hiring process, out Medical Staff Services Team conducts a full credentials verification process at initial hire and every three (3) years which includes:

Application Review – We confirm that you have completed all portions of the online credentialing application and have submitted all required supporting documents.

Credentials Verification – We verify information including, but not limited to the status of your license, malpractice insurance coverage, education and training using criteria defined to meet accreditation, regulatory standard our health plan contracts require.

Final Committee Review – If your credentials meet minimum standards, your application is sent for review by our Southern California Credentialing Committee consisting of Planned Parenthood clinical staff and professional peers.

Once you are hired, the Medical Staff Services team will contact you directly to initiate your online application process and help facilitate the submission of all the necessary documents to support the credentialing and enrollment processes which can take up to 45 days to complete from the date we receive all of your documentation.

Are clinicians required to take call? If so, how often?

Clinicians take triage call about once a month.

Does Planned Parenthood offer loan repayment?

We offer a generous retention bonus to Clinicians (Nurse Practitioners or Physician Assistants) who work at any of our Riverside or Imperial County health centers. This bonus can be used for loan repayment or in any way the employee prefers.

Does Planned Parenthood offer malpractice insurance?

Yes, our parent organization, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) provides complimentary malpractice insurance coverage, including tail coverage, for employed licensed practitioners from the date of hire and for the duration of employment. It is not necessary for our providers to carry their own coverage while treating patients in our centers. Please note: our coverage does not carry over to any services rendered outside of Planned Parenthood.

What if I work overtime?

Our clinicians are paid hourly, so if a provider works over eight hours in a day or 40 hours in a week, they are paid at an overtime rate of 1.5 times their regular hourly rate.

What is the work attire for clinicians?

Clinicians may wear scrubs or business casual attire with a white lab coat.
