Jackman, Maine: We are recruiting a sharp Physician Assistant to join a respected rural health center near the Canadian border in Northwestern Maine.

This small practice is managed by a successful FQHC / community health center, and provides primary care and walk-in/urgent care services to patient of all ages. We need an additional full time provider to join a wonderful, experienced physician, with an excellent clinical and administrative support team.

Confident new graduates are encouraged to apply!

This is a full time position in an outpatient only setting. Join a supportive group practicing in a modern facility with fully integrated electronic medical records, and an on-site lab.

If you got into medicine because you want to help people, this is a rural community with a shortage of providers – giving you the perfect opportunity to do just that! Your expertise and compassion will have a direct impact on the people here, and you will find an opportunity that could be incredibly personally and professionally fulfilling!

We are offering:

  • Unique opportunity to practice in scenic underserved area!
  • New grads welcome – very supportive environment!
  • Paid relocation
  • Great base salary
  • Health and dental insurance
  • Paid holidays and vacation time
  • Paid leave plus an expense budget for CME
  • Assistance with your student loan debt!

Northwestern Maine is a region dotted with small towns, including Jackman, which total about 1000 full time residents. Rural life moves at a somewhat slower pace, so you will get to know your patients as part of your broader community.

You can take advantage of the numerous recreational opportunities that bring thousands of visitors to the region: superb hunting and fishing, hiking and camping, skiing and snowmobiling, and even dog sledding! This forested area features many crystal clear streams, rivers, and lakes – including nearby Moosehead Lake, the largest in the state, surrounded by more than 300 miles of ATV and snowmobile trails. Kayaking and whitewater rafting are also popular in this pristine part of Maine. If you enjoy golf, the local courses are challenging – and include an 1880’s era course (the second oldest in New England) on scenic Mt. Kineo, accessible by ferry across Moosehead Lake!

Your children will thrive in a school where everyone knows them, and the student/teacher ratio is excellent. The local school prides itself on an expanding sports program, a focus on the arts, and a competitive math team! Look to local farms for fresh food, and some of the best maple syrup in the country.

Jackman is just 16 miles south of the border with Canada, and three hours from Quebec City. Jackman is 90 minutes north of the city of Skowhegan, and about three hours from Portland.
