This position will run a regular General Surgery and upper/ lower endoscopy clinic as well as 1:3 call. A successful candidate should be Board certified with more than three years’ experience in a hospital setting including comfort working with trauma, gastrointestinal bleeds and upper/lower endoscopy. Independent contractor status with highly competitive compensation.
Not only is this a dream job opportunity, but Mammoth Lakes is paradise for any year-round outdoor enthusiast. During winter you can ski and snowboard the legendary Mammoth and June Mountains or take off into the wilderness on your cross country skis.
Spring is our fishing opener where the town of Mammoth LAKES really gets its name and our abundance of alpine lakes are filled with trophy trout. The sharp and craggy granite peaks of the Sierra Nevada Range also form a dramatic backdrop for meadows brightly colored by wildflowers.
Then the summer melts away the snow, opening thousands of miles of trails and even the road to Yosemite National Park just a 45 minute drive from town. You’ll never tire of finding secret alpine lakes, lush aspen-lined streams and forested hideaways tucked away in the mountains. From the Pacific Crest and the John Muir Trails to short day hikes, there’s something for everyone in the Eastern Sierra.
Do you prefer to travel on two wheels? If so, miles and miles of quiet mountain roads and epic road bike climbs are calling your name. Prefer the dirt? We’ve got plenty of cross country and downhill trails. You can take the lift up to 11,000 feet and plummet down some black diamond bike trails on Mammoth Mountain. Or take the beginner trails with the whole family! You can even bike to work at Mammoth Hospital on our many local bike paths.
Finish up any epic day with a cold beer at one of our local breweries or sit down to a great meal at any of our fine dining restaurants where you are bound to run into a friend from Mammoth Hospital! We also have excellent schools and a local community college along with a burgeoning theater and music community. Bluegrass jams or professional violinist duets? Yep, we got ‘em both. It’s tough to find that small town feel with so many amenities and Mammoth has it all!
But that’s not it! There are just too many amazing outdoor features to list. Mammoth Hospital gives employees the work life BALANCE they need to enjoy where they live. With five weeks of paid time off for new hires, you’ll find plenty of time to get out there!
Come work at Mammoth Hospital and make this amazing place your home so you can begin exploring!
