The PCP will be required to demonstrate the capacity to function independently and in collaboration with other external health care professionals and the Clinica Las Mercedes clinical and administrative staff. The PCP is expected to comply with guidelines along with participating in risk and quality management programs, clinical meetings and other meetings as required that promote patient health and company goals.
