Full Time Pediatrics Job , ME
Pediatrics Physician Opportunity - Northern Maine - J1 and H1B Visa Candidates Accepted
We are a community of providers committed to excellence in patient-centered healthcare and to improving the lives of those we serve. We are actively engaged in advancing the health and wellness needs of people in northern Maine, including the unserved and underserved.
Pediatric Practice Opportunity
We have 30 physicians and 26 mid-level providers. In the Fall of 2007, the practice was designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center, providing enhanced access to health care services for all members of the community, and allowing the practice to employ providers holding H-1B and J-1 visas. In 2016 The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) awarded us for Oral Health expansion. The HRSA grant award improves and expands the delivery of oral health through our services area which encompasses 22 towns across 900 square miles. In addition, HRSA also awarded us with multiple grants for their quality performance. We led the field of 18 health center grantees in Maine with awards across four categories, including a prestigious National Quality Leaders award.
For over 38 years our organization has provided care to a service area population numbering about 35,000 people.
Unlimited potential exists for a Pediatrician to join our practice in a community that is economically, culturally, and socially inviting. This opportunity has come about due to relocation of an existing Pediatrician. Our community prides itself on the high quality of its public school system, extremely low crime rate and family-oriented community activities. The community boasts a new multi-million dollar Recreation and Wellness Center that offers programs and activities for all ages.
As an employee, the successful Pediatrician will receive a competitive salary, generous health and welfare benefits package, professional liability insurance, CME reimbursement, relocation assistance, and education loan repayment, if applicable. The physician will also receive an annual allowance for licensing, DEA registration, professional society memberships, and medical journal subscriptions. All of our primary care health centers are approved for participation in the National Health Service Corps Loan Repayer program. Immigration assistance provided by expert legal counsel is provided at the expense of the practice for candidates needing a J-1 waiver, H-1B visa or green card.
