Family Physician with OB
SEARHC was established in 1975 under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act as a non-profit health consortium which serves the health interests of the residents of Southeast Alaska. The intent of this legislation was to have Indian Health Service programs and facilities turned over to tribal management. Our contracting with IHS began in 1976 when we took over management of the Community Health Aides Program. In 1982, we took over operation of the IHS Juneau clinic, now the Ethel Lund Medical Center, and took over operation of Sitka’s Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital in 1986. We are one of the oldest and largest Native-run health organizations in the nation.
The SEARHC Ethel Lund Medical Center, Juneau, Alaska is searching for a full-time family physician with OB to join a great medical staff, primarily serving Alaska Native/Native American patients in the hospital and clinic. Have the best of both worlds by joining our practice where hospital duties are shared and our remaining time is in an outpatient clinic with great staff and excellent quality of life. We have the opportunity to practice full spectrum family medicine with easy access to consultants when we need them. Maintain all your skills learned in residency and expand them further with support from our tertiary care center, Alaska Native Medical Center.
