JOIN A GREAT TEAM
Scenic Faculty Medical Group (SFMG) is a great team of over 20 physicians committed to providing excellent medical care to the underserved, while also teaching residents. Practices include teaching family practice residents, inpatient care, seeing a diverse patient population and providing primary outpatient care services. Our physicians provide primary care services for the County of Stanislaus’ six health clinics, and serve only MediCal (MediCare/MediCaid) eligible patients, through two plans: Health Net and Health Plan of San Joaquin. In addition, our physicians are the primary care faculty to the Valley Consortium for Medical Education for its Family Medicine residency.
CLINIC LOCATION IMMEDIATE NEEDS:
McHenry Medical Office (2 practitioners) Paradise Road Medical Office (2 practitioners) Hughson Medical Office (smaller facility – 1 practitioner) Turlock Medical Office (1 practitioner) Ceres Medical Office (1 practitioner)
PRACTITIONERS – WE NEED 7 PHYSICIANS:
Family medicine practitioners – OB optional Obstetricians Pediatricians
Our physicians have a high level of autonomy and trust, allowing individual interests to be developed. This also includes the ability to work more or less, depending on individual income desires and needs, which also allows for greater work/life balance. In addition, the opportunity to teach residents breaks the routine of clinic work, allows for continued professional growth, and generates a pipeline of physicians for the valley and our medical group. Physicians will be responsible for building their practice, however all of our clinics currently have patient waiting lists and are not accepting new patients.
OUR PHYSICIANS ARE TEACHERS AND MENTORS
Our physicians often choose our group because we offer the opportunity to teach family medicine residents, in both the clinic and outpatient setting. Great rewards come from making a contribution to well-trained primary care doctors in our community. Most SFMG physicians teach at least one half day per week in the residency clinic, or various assignments in inpatient medicine and labor and delivery, where they teach procedures as well as provide important feedback about clinical thinking, documentation, and physical exams. The chance to impact eager learners with knowledge and experience adds inspiration and variety to our physicians’ weeks. We teach evidence-based medicine and current practice guidelines, keeping up to date in our own practices as well. Faculty and residents also interact at residency and social events, providing the opportunity for mentorship.
WORK, PAY & BONUS STRUCTURE:
Partnership in SFMG requires $2,500 to purchase 10 shares; these shares do not change in value and if a physician leaves they sell the shares back to SFMG for the same amount. There are no senior partners, everyone in the group has an equal voice and equal pay, and pay is performance based.
Pay for the physicians starts with a guaranteed 12 month salary of $216,000. In addition there is a $20,000 sign on bonus (paid over three years). The salary is guaranteed by the local Tenet hospital, Doctors Medical Center. After the first 12 months the doctor is paid on productivity – the amount the physician earns is based on the number of patients seen, teaching hours worked, hospital billings received and any other work performed. Outside of public health clinic and teaching, other work available includes: urgent care shifts, chart review for local hospice organizations, teaching seminars, etc.
