Physician Extender

Many healthcare systems struggle with rising costs that shift to the patients treated. That's why Mayweather Medical Group has physician extenders available.


A physician extender is a catch-all term used to describe providers who help with delivering quality and compassionate patient care in place of or in addition to a medical doctor in a health care system.

More About Our Physician Extenders

Mayflower Medical Group employs physician extenders and non-physician providers to help with athletic training, better patient outcomes, and more. 


Usually, a physician extender has a Bachelor's degree or Master's in nursing, but they also need a license to practice in their state and practical experience in the field. These people are great at providing acute care and emergency care as needed.


Types of physician extenders include:

Nurse Practitioners

Emergency nurse practitioners or regular ones offer high-level care and have more independence and authority than other nurses, including RNs. Sometimes, advanced nurse practitioners treat and diagnose patients personally or might work with a doctor in our hospital. They are still advanced practice providers who help patients and focus on their needs.

Physician Assistant

Another type of physician extender includes the physician assistant. They're licensed to practice under the supervision of a hospital or private practice physician and can diagnose/treat patients.


Typically, they're used as emergency physicians when the primary care doctor isn't available at the clinical practice.
