Bethel, AK Family Medicine/OB

Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation is searching for a Family Medicine physician w/OB for an Inpatient (Hospitalist)/Emergency Medicine practice in a unique location. We are located in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region of southwest Alaska (Bethel, AK). We are searching for a provider comfortable with Inpatient and Emergency Medicine, to provide care in the hospital setting. Our FPs do deliver, and OB is a must. Medically this is a unique and rewarding practice!

Our area is rural and this position offers the opportunity to see cases not typical in a more populated area. Physicians that thrive see this as a chance to practice Family Medicine as it is supposed to be. YKHC provides care for 50+ villages in Alaska at our regional hospital in Bethel, AK. We cover an area roughly the size of Oregon! The patient population is thankful for the medical services provided. This is a real opportunity to have a rewarding impact!

The schedule is based on 80 work hours/pay period (2 weeks), working Inpatient or Emergency Medicine shifts. Our Level IV ED sees about 25k visits/year. The typical census for IP is 19 (this includes all inpatients, census for FP Hospitalist will be lower). Again, our providers do OB. We average about 40 deliveries/month. (***If someone has completed a Surgical Obstetrics fellowship, I would like to speak further as we have a specific need. It is truly a rewarding position, as not many places ask an FP to be as surgically involved as us.)

Compensation is excellent, and we offer federal health insurance and a significant sign on/retention bonus program. We are also eligible for substantial state and federal loan repayment.

Bethel, AK
As the gateway to the Yukon Delta, Bethel is home to the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation. It’s a place rich with the charms of Alaska. Both modern and filled with frontier life, Bethel will take you beyond what you expect and redefine what you think of Alaska. Bethel is considered a hub to nearly 50 villages in our region. The villages in the southwest region of our state rely on Bethel, (Alaska’s third-busiest cargo hub) to be a pass-through for many modern commodities including fuel, groceries, and any other supplies one would need. The area is not for everyone. Physicians in the area share an adventurous spirit, are willing to be flexible and creative, and work well as part of a team. This may seem obvious, but someone must not mind the cold!

If you have an interest in challenging yourself medically, being part of a collegial team, really making a difference where working together is a necessity to positive outcomes - please contact me:

Thomas Scherrer at 907-313-1425 or
YKHC exercises Federal Law (PL 93-638), which allows American Indian/Alaska Native preference in hiring for all positions.
