The North Shore-LIJ Department of Medicine is seeking a BC/BE Internal Medicine or Family Medicine Physician to join our  House Calls Program.

Addressing the needs of today’s chronically ill and aging population, North Shore LIJ House Calls Program provides expert medical care within the privacy and comfort of patients’ homes. The House Calls Program serves patients in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens counties who have difficulty traveling to doctor appointments. Our team of physicians and nurse practitioners provides at-home visits to diagnose, treat, and coordinate services including laboratory, X-rays, and homecare.

This is truly a unique opportunity to use your medical knowledge and skills to make a difference in the lives of patients and caregivers in need. Our award-winning house calls program was chosen by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to participate in the Independence at Home (IAH)  national demonstration of the effectiveness of home-based primary care.

The house calls physician position involves travel in Queens and Nassau County. Board certification or fellowship training in palliative care or geriatrics is a plus. Must be comfortable working independently and in interdisciplinary teams.
