You take care of patients.
We'll take care of everything else.
You've spent years learning and training to provide outstanding care for your patients. That's why our model lets you focus on taking care of them. Our physicians have wrap-around practice and administrative support to do many of the things that aren't clinical, from answering emails to providing follow-up instructions, to helping secure social services for your patients.
Our integrated model fosters an environment that encourages and rewards innovation, providing our staff with ample opportunities to explore their interests. A recipient Healthgrades 50 Best Hospitals awards, Vohs and Lawrence awards, and 3-star ratings from Society of Thoracic Surgeons (to name just a few), we put innovative ideas forward while doing the right thing for patients. And we want your voice at our table.
Northwest Permanente, P.C. is currently seeking a Board Certified or Board Eligible Psychiatric physician to join or growing medical group as a Locum Tenens physician.

For local candidates, we are open to remote (50% virtual) once you have completed onboarding and the team is comfortable with your knowledge and understanding of our virtual care model. If you are not local, then you will need to be onsite at a local clinic in Portland, OR or Vancouver, WA a minimum of 4 and max of 5 days per week. If you are local to the Portland area and do not require travel, then you will need to be onsite at the Tanasbourne clinic at least 2 day per week; although we prefer as many days onsite as possible.
This physician will work in a float role supporting our Portland, OR and Southwest WA metro region. All providers will need to have licenses in OR and WA. We are also open to physicians interested in working onsite, virtually, or a combination of onsite/ virtual depending on the needs of the Mental Health team and preferences of the physician.
