As Medical Director of Advisory Services, you will work side-by-side with physicians, staff, hospital leadership, and utilization management personnel to provide direct education and support in key areas including patient status, clinical documentation, compliance, and utilization management (UM). You will seek opportunities to improve processes, ensure that patients receive appropriate care, and help your clinical colleagues to make sure their documentation accurately reflects the work they do. As a hospital leader, you will also serve on, or even chair, the UM committee.
Traditionally, a physician advisor's role has focused on providing case reviews and responses to determinations and denials. At Sound Advisory Services, we believe a skilled physician advisor can do much more to impact hospital health and support fellow physicians.
With the Sound Advisory Services clinical management team's support, you will expand your knowledge, drive value, and steward the well-being and financial stability of the hospital. A medical director of advisory services is a rewarding leadership opportunity for a motivated, engaged MD or DO with a minimum of 3 years of advisory experience (inpatient experience also preferred) and board certification (base specialty) recognized by ABMS or ABQAURP. For those considering a future as a physician executive, this role is an excellent professional development opportunity.

Located in Phoenix, Arizona and surrounded by stunning sunsets, beautiful mountain ranges, and the Sonoran Desert. Towering saguaro cactuses, spring wildflowers, and mountains on every horizon are just a few of the natural aesthetics that make Phoenix one of the best cities to spend time outdoors. Hiking and biking are some of the most popular ways to see the saguaro cacti, red rocks, and desert arroyos, no matter what part of town you live in. The Cholla trail on Camelback Mountain features the most iconic outline on the horizon and Piestewa Peak in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve offers even more signature vistas and trails. South Mountain Park and Preserve is the largest municipal park in the United States, and mountain bikers love the 50 miles of trails it provides.
