BC/BE two (2) Family Medicine physicians for hospital affiliated practice and for replacement positions for retiring physicians with established offices. The opportunity exists to practice OB (for the Family Medicine Physician who is interested in doing so - though not required). Current call requirements include every 5th night for the practice; other call includes OB (if electing to practice this specialty), that requirement would be every 8th weekend, otherwise every 16th weekend.
For the clinic; or outpatient position, a Family Medicine physician who specializes in Adult Medicine or Gerontology would be a plus, but not required.
