The Wilmington Delaware VA Medical Center is currently seeking a highly qualified Primary Care Physician to work in the Sussex County Delaware Outpatient Clinic in Georgetown, Delaware.

The ideal candidate will provide Outpatient Primary Medical Care to a panel of male and female veterans. Approximately 20% of your patients will be general women's health. 

VA Physicians enjoy working in a professionally stimulating environment that provides every opportunity to focus on the practice of medicine. Many of the burdensome administrative details usually found inprivate practice are handled by support staff so that VA physicians can spend their time on patient care, not on running a business. This approach offers a unique freedom of practice to VA physicians and contributes towards providing the highest level of quality care to the Nation’s veterans.

VA provides a supportive environment that contributes to the delivery of quality health care. VA physicians also enjoy a quality of life that simply can’t be found in private practice. With predictable work hours and conditions, VA physicians are able to take time for themselves and their families. In addition to professional and personal rewards, VA also offers extensive employment benefits and educational opportunities.
