Job Summary

We are seeking a Primary Care Director (MD/DO) to join our growing team at the Anoka Metro Regional Treatment Center (AMRTC) in Anoka, MN, leading the primary care medical team within the hospital.   Our medical staff enjoy the challenge of working with people having complex illnesses, in a well-supported interdisciplinary team.

AMRTC is a 100-bed modern tertiary care teaching hospital, which provides care to a dynamic patient population within the state of Minnesota. AMRTC serves committed individuals with complex psychiatric and behavioral health needs and is a critical part of the continuum of care for hospitals, communities, and courts within the state. AMRTC is the hub of a state psychiatric care network including 7 smaller hospitals and a wide range of community-based resources. Patients at AMRTC have longer lengths of stay than most community hospitals, affording the opportunity to delve into complex behavioral and physical health concerns and help set the patients it serves on a trajectory toward wellness. Because AMRTC is a freestanding psychiatric hospital and not a medical hospital, this position focuses on typical primary care needs such as chronic disease management and minor acute medical problems. As such, candidates are not required to have recent hospital-based medicine experience.

In this role, you will:

  • Provide primary care medical services to patients.
  • Provide continuity of care to assigned patients by participating in phone call coverage.
  • Actively participate in the functioning of the medical staff organization.
  • Interact with, and support Primary Care APRNs.
  • Participate in and assist in development of educational activities for the medical staff.

* May be required to travel, on occasion, to sites across Minnesota to provide care and coverage at any of our six Community Behavioral Health Hospitals (CBHH) or Community Addiction Recovery Enterprise (CARE) facilities.

AMRTC provides the convenience of working in the Twin Cities metro area (a national leader in outdoor activity, biking, theater, and healthcare), without the hassle of the downtown commute. We provide the opportunity to work with a dedicated and experienced clinical staff as well as the benefits of working for a sophisticated state public healthcare system.

We offer a robust compensation and benefits plan that includes generous cash compensation, comprehensive health insurance, state pension eligibility, student loan reimbursement, sign on bonus, CMEs, vacation and sick time to support a healthy work life balance and more!



Minimum Qualifications

  • Board certification with the American Board of Family Practice or Internal Medicine, or Board Eligible.
  • An active unrestricted State of Minnesota medical license, or ability to obtain a State of Minnesota medical license.
  • CMS eligible provider.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Three (3) plus years of experience in the medical field.
  • One (1) year of experience working in an environment with adults with severe mental Illnesses.
  • Our employees are dedicated to ensuring cultural responsiveness. Preferred candidates will have a variety of experiences working effectively with others from different backgrounds and cultures.


Additional Requirements

To facilitate proper crediting, please ensure that your resume clearly describes your experience in the areas listed and indicates the beginning and ending month and year for each job held.

REFERENCE/BACKGROUND CHECKS - The Department of Human Services will conduct reference checks to verify job-related credentials and criminal background check prior to appointment.

EDUCATION VERIFICATION - Applicants will be required to provide a copy of their high school diploma at time of interview OR copies of their college transcript or college degree/diploma at time of interview. Copies of the college degree/diploma are acceptable ONLY if it clearly identifies the field in which it was earned.

The individual(s) selected for this position are required to attest to and provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination by their first day of employment, per federal requirements. The individual(s) selected for the position may request an accommodation if they are unable to receive a COVID-19 vaccination due to: (a) a recognized medical condition for which a COVID-19 vaccine is contraindicated; or (b) an objection based upon a sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance. For additional information about this COVID-19 vaccination requirement, contact Heidi Schurmann in DHS Human Resources at heidi.schurmann@state.mn.us. Please do not email or provide any proof of vaccination with your application/resume. This information will be collected from you if you are hired for this position.
