Part-Time Emergency Medicine Physician – Coupeville, WA

To prospective team members,

I am the medical director for Sound’s emergency medicine (EM) program at WhidbeyHealth, located in Coupeville, Washington, and have proudly been a part of Sound for over three years. I welcome interest from new graduates and experienced physicians desiring a career change. I would like to share more about it, specifically about our people, practice, and purpose, as you consider your options:

  • We are a collaborative and established team of seven physicians and two APPs.
  • We thrive on the diversity of our clinicians, hailing from diverse geographic, educational, and training backgrounds. We continuously learn from one another and approach patient care with fresh perspectives.
  • We are actively involved in multiple committees in the hospital, including trauma, peer review, and credentials.
  • Our team enjoys diverse hobbies such as horse riding, cycling, and hiking, strongly emphasizing family. We gather a few times annually to unwind and bond as a team with our loved ones.
  • Our physicians are all EM residency trained. We can consider very experienced family medicine graduates with ACLS, BLS, and PALS certifications.
  • We work in a critical access hospital with a level III trauma center and support from OBG and general surgery 24/7.
  • We work alongside Sound’s hospital medicine team, who do most of the admits.
  • We maintain strong connections through monthly team meetings alongside our hospital medicine partners.
  • Recognizing the importance of family and spending time outdoors, we offer a flexible schedule. We’re always there to support each other when covering shifts. We’re seeking physicians willing to work primarily nights and around 60-80 hours/month.
  • Average compensation for this role is $260 per hour.
  • We put patients first. Always.
  • A focus on growth and development is a key feature of Sound, where teammates can expand their careers here locally and within the broader medical group.
