An Indian health career offers an experience — culturally, spiritually and professionally — unlike any other. It's the type of career where you can contribute to the health and well being of a medically underserved patient population, people who are appreciative, deserving and need your expertise most.

Our unique health care model allows our practitioners to fulfill critical roles in clinics, hospitals and public health outreach programs. The majority of our locations are rural and remote, offering exciting opportunities for a diverse group of health care professionals who seek the adventurous, outdoor lifestyle that comes with practicing within an Indian health community. In addition, you’ll have an opportunity to deliver top-quality health care as part of an interdisciplinary team, allowing you to learn and practice alongside your colleagues.

Competitive salaries, comprehensive benefits and opportunities for advancement are typical at all Indian health facilities. In addition, you’ll have an opportunity to live and work among some of the most picturesque settings in the country.
