Practice Opportunity Highlights
Saint Alphonsus Medical Group (SAMG) seeks a board-certified family practice physician to practice in a brand new state-of-the-art facility. This location also qualifies for National Health Service Corps loan repayment.
Requirements include a strong medical background and a desire to develop a practice to support a growing multi-specialty medical group. In providing this support, you will obtain Idaho and Oregon medical licensure to maintain and strengthen the Health System’s general internal program across all communities we serve. The opportunity also privileges at Saint Alphonsus Medical Center – Ontario.
We greatly value the input and leadership of our physicians and encourage each physician to actively participate in department meetings, SAMG leadership council and in matters of practice/service line development. The physician must demonstrate a commitment to a multi-disciplinary team approach to patient care and work cooperatively with associates and other providers. The physician must also be willing to oversee and supervise mid-level providers.
