Pediatrician J1 or H1B Houlton, Maine cw
Houlton, Maine: We have an excellent opportunity for a skilled Pediatrician to join the medical staff of an award-winning critical access hospital serving 18,000 residents of Aroostook County, in northeastern Maine.
Candidates with a J1 or H1B visa are welcome to apply!
This is an important, full-scope traditionalist role! Join fellow physicians and Pediatric NPs in a well-established, hospital-owned rural health center practice on the hospital campus. This medical center sees about 130 deliveries annually, about 1/3 of which were C-sections, and of those, only ten were performed outside of business hours.
You will enjoy a convenient 4 day/week schedule, with lots of paid time off, and call shared on a 1:3 basis. Call is typically for the newborn nursery or to attend unscheduled C-sections. Attendance is not required for vaginal births, unless a problem presents. Serious pediatric cases are handled by the nearest tertiary medical center (only five such cases were transferred last year) so there are few inpatient pediatric patients.
You are invited to join one of Americas Top Rural Hospitals, designated by the Leapfrog Group for exemplary performance across a variety of safety and quality measures. Come and practice in a community where patients respect and appreciate healthcare providers!
We are offering:
Safe, welcoming community
Secure hospital employment
Established practice with experienced staff
Cash signing bonus!
Paid relocation to scenic Maine!
Convenient 4 day/week schedule
Very competitive salary
Excellent cash productivity/incentive bonuses!
Paid liability insurance
Health & life insurance
Plenty of paid leave for vacations, sick time, and your CME
Assistance with student loan debt also available!
