Sam Houston State University College of Osteopathic Medicine is looking for an experienced, attentive and conscientious family medicine or internal medicine physician with strong interpersonal skills capable of treating a wide range of medical conditions in a multispecialty clinic affiliated with our osteopathic medical school. The successful candidate will produce individualized healthcare programs based on patient historical data and provide continuous healthcare support for patients and health management advice.

Excellent communication and good presentation skills are expected.

The position will be primarily clinical in nature (0.8-0.9 FTEs) and will involve collaborating with clinical staff and other academic clinical faculty to provide stability to an evolving clinical practice. In addition, the position will incorporate teaching medical students, residents, and allied health students in the clinic setting. The remaining 0.1-0.2 FTE may include contributions to the medical education of pre-clinical medical students, service to the college in the form of interviewing and committee participation.

Clinical performance will be measured, and an incentive plan will be implemented to supplement income and encourage adequate revenue production. Basic primary care procedural knowledge and skill is desired.

Please note this position is located in Conroe at the newly developed College of Osteopathic Medicine facility.
