Job Description

MD/DO - Primary Care Physician (Locums)
At the crossroads for centuries...

The Community - Yuma, AZ
Yuma's geography shaped the Southwest, and because this was the safest spot to cross the Colorado River, all roads led to Yuma for travelers from Spanish explorers to Okies fleeing the Dust Bowl. Today Yuma is a vibrant multicultural community that celebrates its rich heritage, surrounded by wide-open spaces and pristine desert scenery - all with a river running through it. With more sunshine than any other city on earth, Yuma is a natural for all kinds of outdoor activities, from boating to golf to off-roading, great festivals or take a day trip south of the border. And when the sun goes down, you'll still find plenty to do, including gaming at three great casinos. Agriculture and Agritourism is the number one industry in Yuma, and it is known as the winter vegetable capital of the world. Several things account for that: Plentiful sunshine, rich soil, ample labor and high-quality irrigation water.

Yuma CBOC - Southern Arizona VA Health Care System
The Yuma Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) is designed to deliver Primary Care Services to eligible Veterans living in Pima, LaPaz and surrounding counties.

  • Alternative or collateral duties may include management of a subsection of primary care patients, the subsection may be defined either by a disease status (e.g. spinal cord injury patients), or demographic status (women veterans, OIF/OEF Veterans, employees etc.). Typically these duties are designated at the time of joining but occasionally during the course of the task order, participation in organizational initiatives, such as familiarization with telemedicine for patient care at our rural clinics.
  • Physicians are expected to provide clinical oversight and support for and review care provided by mid-level practitioners.

Physicians will also require additional training in ICD-10 coding at the SAVAHCS/CBOC. Prohibited abbreviations will not be used.
  • Clinical reminders should be addressed and closed as medically appropriate. Quality of care will meet professional standards at all times and will be peer reviewed periodically by the care line medical director and the Medical Executive Board.
