Family Medicine Physician
At Southcentral Foundation, our physicians enjoy a unique work setting that is based on one of our corporate goals: shared responsibility.
Family medicine physicians work within an integrated care team, which is primary care team staffed with a full-time RN case manager, a certified medical assistant, and case management support. Additionally, each integrated care team has access to other in clinic specialties that include a dietician, certified nurse midwife, pediatric nurse practitioner liaison, pharmacist, lactation consultant, community resource specialist, behavioral health consultant, psychiatrist, pain consultant, and a home visit team.
Unlike many family-medicine positions, our physicians are not compensated based on volume of patients seen. As a result of Southcentral Foundation focus on creating an environment of wellness for our customers, we are focused on quality of care, not quantity of care. This means that our physicians and teams have the opportunity to spend more time with patients to address any possible underlying causes of symptoms.
Access to Care
Southcentral Foundation is a part of the Alaska Native Medical Campus, which we co-manage with the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium. Together, we make up the Alaska Native Medical Center and encompass primary care, a hospital, emergent care, behavioral services, complementary medicine, health education, and more. This proximity to services, such as the Ear Nose and Throat Clinic, Traditional Healing and Physical Therapy creates an excellent environment for access to care. Additionally, there are no co-pays for Alaska Native or American Indian customer-owners which help eliminate barriers in decision making created due to cost.
