Correctional providers make an important difference.
It is an exclusive group of individuals who practice correctional medicine. CMA providers are a talented group of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and psychiatrists who value the experience of providing direct patient care. They enjoy the opportunity to work with a skilled medical team that encounters a daily clinical variety of medical issues, without the administrative distractions of free world practice.
In addition to providing guidance and clinical support to the facility’s medical teams, our correctional providers are able to make a real difference in the lives of our inmates. They deliver medical services on a daily basis to inmates similar to those provided in a typical outpatient setting, including:
- Chronic disease management
- Medication management
- Routine clinic visits
- Physical exams
- Acute/urgent care delivery
- Offsite utilization
- And the array of medical duties seen in a large group practice
All of these advantages combine to make correctional medicine with CMA a professionally and personally satisfying career choice.
CMA is led by Chief Medical Officer Keith Ivens, MD.
