    I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    403b benefits for monthly staff

    Cons

    Constant change, high performing office offices are challenged with constant change, causing high turn over rates, unrealistic EJR’s and standard work for rooming staff causes burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Improve attrition, improve staffing , great job on encounter specialist model, however, as soon as a person as reached competency, high turn over rate bringing in 4 new grad students. Loved working here, management including HCA and NM should be fully trained in all aspects of their direct reports job, for several reasons to assist when needed and manadatory walk in your shoes 2x a month for 4 hours.
