Maine Mobile Health Program Seeks Medical Director

Monday, March 4, 2019

Join a passionate, committed team in a dynamic health center serving vulnerable patients in the beautiful state of Maine. The Maine Mobile Health Program (MMHP) seeks a Medical Director to support its mission of improving the health status of Maine’s seasonal workers and their families by providing culturally appropriate care and services. The Medical Director, a member of the Senior Management Team, is based part-time in the Augusta, Maine office and oversees quality primary care of Maine’s agricultural workers in an all-mobile health center setting.

For the past 26 years, the MMHP has provided health care access to migrant and seasonal farmworkers (MSFWs) across Maine. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and federally qualified health center (FQHC), MMHP has an innovative approach to medical care that is low-barrier, values cultural competency and embraces the human dignity of an invisible and vulnerable population. MMHP’s unique model brings medical, dental and behavioral health services to patients where they live and work via mobile medical units and by connecting clients to local partners.

About the Position

The Maine Mobile Health Program is recruiting for a year-round Medical Director (MD, DO, NP) based part-time in the Augusta office, with some provision of state-wide care. This individual will oversee MMHP’s medical providers (mid-levels, nurses, Clinical Coordinator, Behavioral Health Coordinator) and assist in the coordination and implementation of health care programs and outreach activities with agricultural workers and their families. Assisting in development of policies and procedures and leading the Quality Improvement (QI) Program in order to improve health care delivery are also required.
