Job Description

The Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center Vancouver Campus is recruiting for a primary care provider for one of their community-based outpatient clinics. The Primary Care Division provides care to more than 63,000 Veterans, with most requiring chronic disease management. The ideal candidates will have previous experience with panel management and managing chronic conditions. We seek a board certified or board eligible Internal Medicine physician.

Primary Care operates under the Patient Aligned Care Teams (PACT) model of care, which consists of one provider and two clinical and one admin support staff, as well as clinical pharmacy and an integrated mental/behavioral health program. The clinic has 14 PACTs (with room to grow), which are individually led by 8 physicians and 6 nurse practitioners. Starting in the Summer 2017, we are opening our doors to a brand new Primary Care building.

VAPORHCS has a close relationship with our academic affiliate, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), to which it is physically connected by a sky bridge. The VAPORHCS Primary Care Division has a unique relationship with the Department of Hospital and Specialty Medicine and OHSU, with an Internal Medicine Resident clinic. VAPORHCS has a robust research program, with over $32 million in grant funding. VAPORHCS is a leader in high quality, cost effective clinical care, having been recently recognized as among the best by CMS Hospital Compare, recipient of a 2013 Joint Commission Top Performer Award on Key Quality Measures and a 2013 National Center for Patient Safety Cornerstone Silver Level Award. VAPORHCS is also a Magnet Recognition Program Facility. VAPORHCS and Primary Care are committed to innovation and process improvement and utilizes the VA-TAMMCS (Team-Aim-Map-Measure-Change-Sustain) model to actively study current practices and to develop evidence-based improvements.

Our employees enjoy the most progressive benefits packages available, which includes liberal vacation leave, sick leave, military leave, paid holidays, health and life insurance, Thrift Savings Plan (401K), flexible spending accounts, health savings accounts and much more! You may be eligible to apply for the Education Debt Reduction Program. Recruitment and/or relocation incentives may be authorized for highly qualified candidates.
