As a West Coat Spine employee, you play a vital role in representing this brand and driving this change.
Physical Therapist at WCS is responsible for the evaluation and the one on one hands on treatment of our patients. The PT carries a specific caseload of patients that they are responsible for managing. The applicant interested in joining Team WCS must have graduated from a reputable PT program and have an active (or be actively in the application process) State of CA PT license. While a year of experience in the outpatient orthopedic setting is preferred, it is not required. Typically, new graduate PT’s are not allowed to use the support staff of the PTA’s and ATC’s (other than for exercises) until after their first 6 months of treatment as mentorship and guidance are the keys to our success.
The Occupational Therapist role at WCS is filled by graduates with a degree in Occupational Therapy. Applicants must have their active CA OT license or be in the process. The OT at WCS typically sees hand, wrist and elbow patients. Experience in these areas is required and splinting experience is preferred. Just as is the case with the PT role, the OT is responsible for a case load of patients to manage. Peak pays a competitive wage in all of the positions listed below. Team Peak also has an exceptional and vast benefits package often unmatched in an outpatient orthopedic private practice.
This position is key to the flow of each of our clinics. The Patient Care Coordinator is responsible for, but not limited to, the scheduling of patients, collecting payments, answering phones, obtaining authorization for treatment in addition to special projects that relate to the administrative department. WCS likes to see at least a year of experience in the front office of a medical office for this position. A bachelor’s degree is also preferred, but not required. Most importantly, the person applying for this role must be kind, optimistic, focused, efficient, punctual, adaptable and professional in their appearance.
The Exercise Physiologist (EP) role at WCS is filled by someone with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science, Kinesiology or a similar degree. The primary role of the EP is to take our patients through the specific exercises and modalities as prescribed by the physical therapist. The EP will be responsible to assist in providing cues and motivation and education to the patient while also documenting the subjective and objective information as to how the patient performed and responded to the treatment. Other tasks might include assisting the front desk staff as from time to time and keeping the clinic clean and organized.
The Clinic Director at WCS is typically filled by a veteran PT or OT that has been elevated from a Peak clinic where they have been a staff PT or OT. They have had the time to learn the WCS policies, procedures and systems and just as importantly the team culture. While years, of experience as a PT are important the work ethic and personality of the applicant are just as important to being considered for this role. The position is open to any applicant, but members of our existing team are typically considered first as we seek members that want to grow with Team WCS as we have doubled in size each year for the past two years and continue to grow.
The Certified Athletic Trainer must have their bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training and be certified through the State of CA. The role of the “ATC” can range from more of an “EP” role for new graduates without significant experience with an orthopedic population to a role that more closely resembles a staff Physical Therapist. This is all based on post graduate certifications, experience, and/or continuing education courses taken since graduation. Most ATC’s at Peak have their own cases where they assist the PT’s in much the same way as a seasoned PTA might.
Our company culture is built on passionate people. We strive to have every person thrilled to build this company together. We realize that talented people have options, and those who choose West Coat Spine mean a great deal to us. We want you to grow professionally, have a lot of fun, and be surrounded by the best.
