Washington–San Juan Islands– Working Vacation – Locum Tenens

This is a position that is likely to fill quickly because of the magical location.  Just off the Straits of Juan de Fuca.  This is not an easy place to get to but once you’re there you will want to stay.


This is an island community rich with history and charm, surrounded by natural beauty and seemingly endless possibilities for recreation, rest or relaxation.  At this latitude the summer days last until after 9pm.


Lonely Planet just named the San Juan Islands#3 on their Top 10 U.S. Destinations for 2013 list, dubbing the islands “The Gourmet Archipelago”.   Allium, Doe Bay Café and The Bay Café were mentioned in the article, as well as farms and vineyards.

The start date is estimated to be May and will extend until a permanent physician is hired.  Accept a couple of months or the entire assignment.

Work here is defined by a 4 day work week with a modest patient volume estimated to be 15-20 outpatients and the occasional low acuity inpatient.  The average daily census is less than two.  Call, such as it is will be very light and shared with 3 other physicians 1-4.

There is also the option to pick up ED shifts for additional income.

The ability to use EMR is important and aWashingtonStatelicense is strongly preferred.


Compensation is negotiable – you deserve to earn what you are worth – let’s talk.

Travel, overnight accommodations and malpractice –PAID


Please let me know your availability and desired pay rate and provide me with a current CV and a contact number.  All inquiries are held in the strictest of confidence.  I look forward to hearing from you.
