Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Job type: fulltime
Job industry: Healthcare & Medical
A community health center south of Boston that serves a diverse population of mostly low-income patients. We are located in a beautiful building. We are using NextGens EMR.
Our primary care physicians practice within a Patient Centered Medical Home model. Physicians will have assigned patient panels that are capped at 1500 patients. Hours are Monday through Thursday 8:15-8 pm, Friday 8:15-6, Saturday 9-3. Primary Care physicians will see patients roughly 8:15-5:30 four days per week, 11-8 once a week and one Saturday every 8 weeks.
Call is approximately 1 in 8 and is telephone coverage only for patients who call our answering service. The adult medicine group currently takes call a week at a time.
We are happy to sponsor J-1 waivers and green card applications for H1b candidates.
We have a facility Health Professional Shortage Area designation with a score of 13 out of a possible 21. We are an approved National Health Service Corps loan repayment site. The National Health Services Corps is currently offering a generous loan repayment program for a 2-year commitment. There is also a state loan repayment program in Massachusetts that will pay up to $25,000 per year in loan repayment up to a total of $75,000, for physicians who practice in a community health center. Loan repayment is not available to physicians on visas. Physicians cannot receive NHSC and state loan repayment at the same time. Both processes are competitive so we cannot guarantee awards, but we have a very good record of having loan repayment approved.
