Rewarding Medical Director Opening in Alaskan Tribal Health - 23223785
Arc Health is seeking a match for a full-time Medical Director in Alaska's far north, where the northern lights dance about the snowy tundra in winter and the birds and caribou graze during the long summer days. Summer is the best time for hiking, fishing, boating, wildlife viewing and staying up late under the midnight sun. Fall brings opportunity for harvest time as Alaska celebrated nature's bounty. Winter brings snowmobiles, fat-tire biking, skiing, and dog mushing. Spring is the slowest time of year for many as cruise lines prepare for their busiest time of year.
This regional healthcare facility located in Kotzebue, AK serves as the hub for 180 remote clinics in the area. It has a 17-bed inpatient ward, no surgery, and provides outpatient/emergency care to Alaskan Natives. Within the system there is a strong network of Community Health Workers that staff the smaller, remote clinics.
The successful candidate will be a Family Medicine Physician who seeks adventure, prioritizes health equity and social justice, has a desire to serve vulnerable or underserved communities and is seeking strong, passionate team of providers. This is an opportunity of a lifetime. This position would begin as soon as credentialed.
