Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation is searching for a primary care physician for unique practice in a unique location. We are located in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region of southwest Alaska (Bethel, AK). We are searching for an Internal Medicine physician for a 100% outpatient practice, Mon-Fri, no call, no weekends.
We offer an opportunity to see a lot of unique cases, with minimal specialist support, working in a low resource environment. Physicians that thrive here see this as a chance to practice a full scope of Medicine as it is meant to be practiced. Patient visits scheduled for 30 minutes. Averaging 16 patients/day at the clinic in Bethel. The position will require working with health aids in 50+ rural villages in southwest Alaska, an area the size of Oregon! Four times a year, there is opportunity to travel into the villages to provide care. Compensation is excellent, and we offer federal health insurance, and a significant sign on/retention bonus program. We are also eligible for substantial state and federal loan repayment.
In the southwestern corner of Alaska lies Bethel. As the gateway to the Yukon Delta, Bethel is home to the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation. It’s a place rich with the charms of Alaska. Both modern and filled with frontier life, Bethel will take you beyond what you expect and redefine what you think of Alaska.
Bethel is considered a hub to nearly 50 villages in our region. The villages in the southwest region of our state rely on Bethel, (Alaska’s third-busiest cargo hub) to be a pass-through for many modern commodities including fuel, groceries, and any other supplies one would need. The area is not for everyone. Successful physicians in the area share an adventurous spirit, are willing to be flexible and creative, and work well as part of a team. This may seem obvious, but someone must not mind the cold!
