Please see details below regarding the Centralized hiring process. If hired, you will have the choice to select the MA Plus option or regular status position. You will be required to work the same work schedule and role that the clinic is requiring or that is assigned to you as part of the Centralized Hiring Process. The MA Plus option does have a maximum number of participants, so once that number is hit we won't be offering this option until we have vacancies.

MA-Plus colleagues are generally not eligible to transfer for one year to another employment position with SAMG, Saint Alphonsus Health System, or any other Trinity Health Corporation related entity.

Please review the Trinity Health Human Resources System-wide ACA Employee Eligibility Procedure for additional information.** CENTRALIZED RECRUITMENT PROCESS: In addition to direct clinic hiring, we are also conducting a centralized recruitment process for all full-time MA positions, however we are still doing some direct hires to clinics. You will go through an initial phone screen with the Recruiter and then will have a video interview with a hiring team from our Medical Group Nursing Leadership Team and other clinics may be included on this interview as well. By applying for a full-time MA position you will be considered for all Medical Assistant openings (both primary care and specialty clinics). Clinic locations and specialty areas vary based on current openings. If selected for an interview, you will be able to discuss your preferences for type of clinic (primary care or specialty), location, and work schedule with the interview team. If you are selected for hire, once you have a start date we will update your preferences based on available positions and locations at that time. Orientation and Training Process: As you are transitioning into Saint Alphonsus Medical Group, our Clinical Support Team will provide an orientation program that will be critical to your success whether you are a new or experienced MA joining our team. Our goal is to provide you a path to a successful integration into a clinic setting or remaining part of our support team as a float. Your Choice! Once your start date is determined the Clinical Support Team Manager or Lead will follow up with you to obtain your clinic preferences. You will have a 4-6 week orientation including didactic training and orienting with preceptors and providers at the clinics you are interested in. It is like a working interview, you are able to try out the clinic and in turn the clinic also is able to see if you are a good fit with the staff, environment and work. If the clinic is interested in offering you a position, then you would decide if you would like to transfer to that clinic or if you want to work at your second preference clinic the following week. This process could continue to your third preference clinic. Another option is to stay in the Clinical Support Team as a float!
