I see a large number of doctors in these positions. To be honest, a 340k salary is pretty low when compared to private practice when you consider the amount of education required to obtain an MD.

I would imagine that each position comes with its own criteria and statement of qualifications ie, the incumbant in the position must come with a degree in medicine. I would also imagine attracting a doctor to the position would require a pay incentive beyond a normal group and level salary.

I've heard many complaints about the quality of IHS. Could be better or worse in some locations?

Considering the multiple health threats attacking the Native populations, IHS should require some unique stakeholders to mesh with the mission.

Not sure if these are new "improved" salaries, or if they have been so over the years.

I guess Medical Officer is generic, and Salary depends WHICH level of Medical Officer the applicant qualifies for.

Here is a job listed for Gallup, NM http://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/304608100

Yes, we've had similar issues up here with our Indian health branch... Medical Services Branch. The big difference that I can see between the two in yours is still attached to the BIA and ours is contained with Health Canada which is responsible for all Canadian health at the federal level.

Way back in the early 90s, our government slated MSB to be a sunsetting organization and hoped that by the year 2000, all health services would be transferred to FN care and control. It has for the most part in areas where self-government agreements have been signed or where large umbrella groups exist like the NAN. However, in isolated and remote areas, it has been resisted to being transferred down. Some insist that the Medicine Chest clause in one of the treaties should be honoured for all time.

Part of our issues with health services is that each province are the ones who control and administer the delivery of health and in areas where there isn't a large FN population, the provinces are reluctant to set aside monies for such. So there appears to be large holes in the quality of service delivery. Is it the same for you guys?

Well, this is why I supported the idea of Longest Walk 3 - Reversing Diabetes (in Indian Country), to get people active in their own health issues, not wait for some bureaucracy to respond decades too late.

I did attend a presentation by a young IHS nurse who was motivated to inform about the youth suicide situation, and resources being placed to prevent such tragedies, and help survivors of suicide.

I feel in this information age today, we need more young nurses on the rez, and less "regional directors" making high salaries in whichever big regional city.

Sadly, because of things decided decades ago with universities, colleges and government bean counters we all over North America, are facing nursing shortages. People expect a certain salary these days and will go to where they will get it. I've yet to see any government professional position paid as they would in the private market. In our military, we have to contract out for medical officers because there just isn't enough doctors anymore let alone ones that are signing up to be in the military.

Nowadays with extended scope of practice required to work in isolated and remote areas, nurses just aren't willing to put their licences on the line to meet the needs of a community. Some of these nurses are expected to perform minor surgeries, diagnose ailments and prescribe drugs. We lose doctors from small rural areas because they lack the facilities to carry out their practices and yet, we expect nurses to fill in the gaps left by migrating doctors who head back to the large cities.

Both my grandmothers were Native nurses and lived in the remote communities of the north and some of things they had to do to save someone was way beyond what they ever trained for... now these were women who also grew up in these communities and were familiar with local treatments... I can't imagine a young nurse trying to make those decisions today. My grandmothers not only looked after people but they tended to the sick animals as well. many a time my granmas was called out to stitch up a lacerated paw on a dog or deliver a horse or cow.

The level of care at IHS, here in Phoenix, is below ACCCHS, (Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, welfare health insurance), the bedside manner is NON existent, but the lack of respect and privacy is abundant. Non Native men asking Native women very loudly when was your last menstruation cycle, Are you sexually active, Have you ever had a STD test. They botch things constantly, "Miss, So and so, you pregnancy test came back, it's positive, congratulations, (all shouted across a VERY small waiting room), Miss So and So, "Why gee, thanks but I came in here for this broken finger, and by the way, I had my tubes tied 5 years ago.", IHS is a joke, the sad part is is that some many Natives know this and still have to use it, because there is not another choice for them. It's either IHS, or nothing, some Hospitals turn Natives away because IHS is right down the road, and they are supposed to use only IHS. I swear they get their clerical training at the DMV, and their ethics at DES. JOKE, one BIG JOKE

I'm curious, does AZ have an FOI and privacy commissioner at both levels of government? I'd be complaining to the commissioner about the lack of patient privacy and record keeping. Up here, if a medical office even has an appointment book in plain sight, it's in violation of the privacy acts.

Unfortunately when IHS is 6 miles away from your office, it's kind of hard to regulate what is and is not happening. I think that it has been such a chronic problem for so long that folks just come to expect it.

What a lot of Government entities do around here and I can only guess that IHS is no different, is they place a Regulator on premises for a few hours a day, (never seems to be the same consistent hours) to field any complains, much like a regulator will regulate any thieving of his employers property. Basically a giant cut off man to keep complaints from going higher up and onward, and give them wonderful titles like liaison or advocate.

I'm not saying that IHS does NO good, I'm just saying it seems to have a sense of not really giving a [email protected]

I am applying for an IHS Scholarship that has a 2-year mandatory employment period with IHS after graduation.

One of the reasons I'm going into patient care is to be able to care for native people with more sensitivity to our lifeways, traditions, etc.

With all that we hear in the government about diversity and sensitivity, you'd wish they would practice what they preach.
