LifeSource is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives through organ, eye and tissue donation in the Upper Midwest. It's our privilege to serve the 7 million people who live in communities across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and portions of western Wisconsin.
We're dedicated to working with our hospital and community partners to support donor families, manage the donation process and educate our communities to create a culture of donation. We're a passionate and committed cross-functional team who believe in our vision that everyone shares the gift of life. Each of our team members plays an integral role in our life-saving work, using their unique talents and contributions to further our mission.
Have you ever thought what happens when you check the DONOR box on your license? More than 100,000 Americans are in need of an organ, eye, or tissue transplant. Our talented team of Surgical Eye Recovery Specialists provide hope and healing to others by playing an active role in providing the gift of sight to gracious transplant recipients and researchers. After in-depth education and training, you will independently execute the surgical recovery of corneas from deceased donors in alignment with regulatory and processor requirements. Ongoing training and education drives the opportunity to enhance the overall quality. Processes adhere to proper clinical room etiquette and universal safety precautions while maintaining respect and confidentiality for the donor throughout recovery.
This is a per diem position requiring variable, on-call schedule - including days, evenings, overnights, weekends, and holidays. We utilize a self-scheduling model with the requirement of a minimum of 6 12-hour shifts during a 4-week period, focusing primarily on designated weeks with higher eye recovery opportunities. During your scheduled shift, you must be available and accessible by phone to travel to various work environments within a 2-hour radius of your home location. Work locations vary dependent upon many factors - onsite at LifeSource, medical examiner's offices, hospitals, or funeral homes. On-call time is not paid, notification occurs of a 2hr window to begin a case, paid time occurs upon arrival at the donation site.
