Permanent and Locum Tenens Opportunities
for Serving Native American Children

The Committee on Native American Child Health strives to inform pediatricians of permanent and locum tenens, or short term, opportunities available within Native American communities. The CONACH learns of these opportunities through its relationship with the Indian Health Service and health care professionals serving in Native American communities.

Filling a permanent or locum tenens position within a Native American community can be an extremely rewarding experience. As a pediatrician in this setting, you will have the opportunity to see a wide variety of cases that encompass the entire scope of pediatrics. Please note that in some communities, you may also be expected to provide obstetrics, gynecology, and internal medicine services.

The personal and professional growth opportunities in Native American communities are significant. Additionally, many of these communities are located in beautiful parts of the United States, where you will be able to enjoy the great outdoors.
