Primary Care Physician (Kingman)
North Country HealthCare
About the organization
This is why you went to medical school.
You became a physician so you could bring quality care to people who might not otherwise receive it. At North Country HealthCare, we practice this kind of medicine daily.
North Country HealthCare (NCHC) is transforming healthcare for rural Arizonans. NCHC is an outpatient, primary care, federally qualified health center with a teaching and learning mission. We started as a volunteer-run free clinic in 1991 and now serve 12 communities across the entire northern half of Arizona. We turn no one away. We practice integrated care in an innovative culture. Our model allows us to serve patients holistically through strong provider-patient, provider-provider, and provider-staff relationships. Simply put, at North Country HealthCare, you can practice medicine the way it should be practiced.
We are seeking primary care physician (MD or DO) for our Kingman, Arizona clinic. Kingman is 100 miles southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Demonstrating continuous learning and eagerness for professional development.
NCHC is proud to be a teaching health center and physicians can expect to be involved with the teaching of students and residents.
WHAT YOU WON'T BE DOING
Feeling isolated -- an integrated care model reduces physician burn-out because it offers wrap-around services and programs beyond the exam room to care for your patients.
Missing out on life -- as an out-patient facility, we are not open evenings, weekends, or major holidays. After-hours call is only two weeks per year.
Paying for malpractice insurance or tail coverage -- as an FQHC, physicians are covered by the Federal Tort Claim Act.
Wondering if your job is meaningful -- you will see the positive impact you have on patients and the community regularly.
Have earned an MD or DO degree and completed a Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, or Med/Peds residency.
Must be board eligible or board certified.
Experience in rural health, an FQHC, CHC, or PCMH facility preferred.
