Interim/Temporary Physicians

East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) has an opportunity for a RI-licensed Physician to join our Health Center. EBCAP has two primary locations. One is located at 6 John H. Chafee Boulevard in Newport, RI and the other is located at 100 Bullocks Point Avenue in East Providence RI. The physician would be given ongoing assignments to work on an interim/temporary basis. The interim Physician is welcome to work one day a week, several days a week, or even a full week, on a month to month basis, as EBCAP has current and future physician needs. We want to add to our team of providers and establish an ongoing relationship. 

Our mission is to provide high-quality, comprehensive, and accessible health, dental, behavioral health, and human services to assist people to achieve their fullest potential. By joining EBCAP you are making a statement that you are committed to providing quality care.   

As a family physician with EBCAP, you will provide direct medical services including but not limited to a clinical focus on health promotion, disease prevention and routine health maintenance visits and acute care for all age groups. You will educate patients regarding care, diagnoses, treatment plan, medications and prognosis. You will obtain specialty physician consultation for complicated patients or patients who are assessed to be outside the scope of EBCAP’s practice, and supervise allied health professionals (physician assistant, nurses, medical assistants, etc.) of the care team.      

The position requires an MD (allopathic) or DO (osteopathic) degree, completion of an accredited residency in Family Medicine (preferred) or Internal Medicine, current licensure through the RI Department of Health, current DEA registration/RI Controlled Substance Licensure, current Board Certification in Family Medicine or Internal Medicine, and must complete all privileging and credentialing requirements.
