Skowhegan, Maine: We invite a confident Primary Care Physician (Family Medicine or Internal Medicine trained) to join the medical staff of an independent 25-bed critical access hospital providing care to more than 30,000 residents in this riverside community in central Maine. Join 40+ physicians (and over 700 employees) delivering progressive health and medical services in beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities. Join a welcoming team of two physicians and an experienced nurse practitioner and see exclusively adult outpatients in a comfortable outpatient office setting. Enjoy a convenient 4 or 5 day/week schedule. Phone-only call is light and shared by several providers. A dedicated Hospitalist team cares for all admitted patients. Step into an established, welcoming practice supported by an experienced, dedicated team. Candidates requiring J1 or H1b sponsorship are encouraged to apply. You will be employed by the hospital and will earn a highly competitive salary plus productivity bonuses and benefits that include paid relocation assistance, life, health and disability insurance, liability insurance, 7 weeks of paid time off (vacation, holidays, sick leave, CME time), a generous budget for your CME expenses, and more! Student loan assistance is also available. For those needing immigration support, all costs will be covered. Come to beautiful Maine and see how it earns the nickname, Vacationland! Skowhegan is the jumping-off point to The North Woods, an outdoor recreation lovers dream, with dozens of lakes and rivers, and scenic mountains. Winter snow provides a reliable base for many miles of groomed snowmobile and snowshoeing trails. Locals frequent Eaton Mountain (3 miles from the hospital) for skiing, snowboarding and sledding, or the big slopes of Sugarloaf Mountain, one of New Englands premier ski facilities, 40 miles away. In the summertime, enjoy the activities offered by the beautiful waterways throughout the region. Try some of the best trout fly-fishing in New England, or golf, kayaking or white-water rafting, hiking and biking, or camping on the banks of a quiet lake. There is something here for everyone who loves the outdoors. You may spot a moose or a bald eagle! Skowhegan schools are highly rated, and your home options are varied. Choose a vintage Victorian home downtown, or a comfortable suburban place in a family-filled neighborhood, or a historic farmhouse, with acreage to enjoy. You might purchase your own land featuring woods, pastures or streams, and build your dream house! The Skowhegan State Fair brings fun and food to town each August, with everything from a petting zoo to a Demolition Derby. Surrounding communities offer art, theatre, gyms, childrens programs, unique restaurants and more making this a terrific place to raise a family. Skowhegan is located on the picturesque Kennebec River, which once powered local industry. The rolling hills of southern Somerset County mark an area rich in history, boasting a vibrant economy. Skowhegan is 30 minutes north of the popular college town of Waterville (home to prestigious Colby College), and 60 minutes west of Bangor, Maines third largest city, with an international airport, a respected childrens museum, a casino/hotel, summer music and arts festivals on the riverfront, and more. This town is only an hour from Maine's spectacular coast, and 90 minutes from Portland, with hundreds of restaurants, theaters, a symphony orchestra, semi-pro sports, the International Jetport, and the high-energy Old Port district of shops and nightclubs.
