We are looking for a new member to help build our active department including staffing our CCU and seeing inpatients and outpatients with general internal medicine problems at Upper River Valley Hospital and at the two neighboring facilities in the Upper River Valley area for visiting Internal Medicine clinics.  We are currently a group of 4 practicing internists, 3 of whom work in hospital and one in the outpatient setting.
