Provider Solutions + Development Family Medicine Physician in Valdez, Alaska

Position Description

Valdez, Alaska - We’re looking for a BC/BE Family Medicine physician with an interest in providing full-spectrum care. Full-time position. Competitive compensation; comprehensive benefits. You’ll work in an outpatient clinic, but you’ll also share hospital call, do small hospital procedures, and ideally deliver babies. Experienced physician preferred, but new grads are welcome to apply. Providence Valdez Medical Center and a great primary care practice (located right next door to the hospital) invite you to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to live in beautiful Alaska and be part of a tight-knit team that often lunches together, sometimes even going for a quick jog or ski run on one of the nearby trails. If this appeals to you, we hope you’ll join us in Alaska, the last frontier!

Facility Description

Providence Valdez Medical Center is licensed for 21 beds and has an active medical staff of four. Our remote critical access hospital on Prince William Sound offers providers the opportunity to experience a quality rural community practice as well as Alaska in all its glory. Valdez is well off the beaten path, although we are connected by the road system to Fairbanks and Anchorage. Providence Valdez Medical Center's modern technology and excellent team of providers and support staff allow us to provide personal, compassionate care that is also clinically excellent.

Location Description

Alaska offers financial, cultural and recreational opportunities beyond compare. There is no state income or sales tax; in fact the state pays every Alaskan a yearly dividend from oil revenues! Valdez is known locally as the Switzerland of Alaska thanks to the towering peaks that frame the area. It is more widely known for its critical deep-water port where supply ships bring goods bound for Interior Alaska and a major commercial fishing fleet makes its home. About 4,350 year-round residents keep this busy, beautiful place buzzing. Valdezans tend to spend their off time enjoying their stunningly beautiful surroundings. Winter draws snow junkies for some of the best heli-skiing in the world, and those preferring a gentler pace have miles of outstanding cross country and snowshoeing trails. Scenes from The Sound of Music could have been filmed in the hills above Valdez, where the snow gives way to lush summer grasses and berries in this temperate coastal zone. Meanwhile, in town, there’s a swimming pool, climbing wall and racquetball courts, as well as playgrounds, a library and museums.
