Want to experience the practice of medicine and provide valued, meaningful, collaborative, and mission-driven quality patient care, while living and playing in a spectacular location? Consider joining our highly dedicated and collegial dermatology team committed to giving exceptional and outcomes-driven care to our nations Veterans.

We are recruiting for a full time BC/BE Staff Physician Dermatologist to provide comprehensive high-quality primary and consultative dermatologic care in the outpatient and inpatient settings, including Teledermatology. Our team is seeking to expand services in addition to the current dermatologist, PA, NP, dermatology residents, nursing and scheduling staff.

The Dermatology Staff Physician works under the guidance of and collaborates with the Dermatology Section Chief to determine and accomplish the mission, objectives, and priorities of the Section. In addition to clinical duties, responsibilities include the education, training, and research missions of the Section and Service. Academic interests are encouraged; we are affiliated with the Section of Dermatology at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, and applicants should be eligible for faculty appointment and participate in the training and education of dermatology and internal medicine residents, medical students, other trainees, as well as team members and peers.

In addition, promotion and development of safety, quality, and process improvement activities and policies to facilitate delivery of services and compliance with administrative and regulatory requirements are expected elements.

The White River Junction VA Medical Center is a 74 bed, acute care facility that provides a full range of primary, secondary, and specialty care. We are dually affiliated with the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and the University of Vermont (UVM) College of Medicine. The medical center prides itself in providing high-quality, patient-centric care to our Veterans as well as training and education to medical students, residents, and fellows.

Whether you're interested in academics, research, or a better work/life balance, you'll find the VA has a lot to offer, including the unmatched satisfaction you'll get from caring for those who have served our country. In addition to competitive pay and liability protection, the VA also offers a robust benefits plan that includes:

Paid Time Off:

  • 26 days paid annual (vacation/personal) leave – you can carry over up to 86 days into a new year
  • 13 days paid sick leave per year with unlimited carry over! Unused sick leave can be used to extend creditable service time at retirement!
  • 10 Paid federal holidays with pay
  • Possible 5 Days paid Authorized Absence to attend CME

  • Insurance:
  • Health Insurance: VA employees have an outstanding number of health insurance plans from which to choose (premiums are partially paid by VA)
  • Dental & Vision: Our insurance options also include exceptional vision and dental plans (premiums are partially paid by VA)
  • VA employees have the option to use Flexible Spending Accounts, which allow you to use tax-free dollars to pay for medical, dental, and vision care expenses that are not reimbursed by your health insurance plan
  • Term life insurance, family, and additional coverage options are available with the cost shared by the Federal Government.
  • Long-term care insurance is available as an option

  • Federal Retirement Plan:
  • VA employees are covered by the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). FERS is a three-tiered retirement plan composed of 1) Social Security benefits; 2) FERS-FRAE basic benefits (pension); and 3) Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) which is a 401K-type plan
  • How is the pension funded? VA employees hired after January 1, 2014 automatically contribute 4.4% of their salary each pay period and the VA contributes 8.3% of the employee's salary each pay period for a total annual contribution percentage equal to 12.7% of the employee's salary
  • Similar to the 401(k) savings plans widely available in the private sector, the TSP allows employees to tax defer a portion of their income each year, subject to the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service.
  • The Federal Government also provides an automatic basic contribution (1% of salary) and up to 4% of salary in matching contributions, depending on the amount of the employee contribution
  • For retired military personnel, these benefits are in addition to full monthly retirement pay or pension
  • In addition to FERS, VA provides health care insurance coverage for retired personnel
  • Disability Retirement
  • Employees are vested in a federal pension after only 5 years' service
