Great clinical experience / terrible working conditions.

Physician (Former Employee) Gallup, NM

ProsFast hiring process, good benefits. Great clinical experience. Consider it a well paid Residency, then get out.

ConsStrong bias against non natives. The staff gets a big kick out of seeing non native professional staff fired for bogus violations based on rumor. Providers dumped at remote clinics with no orientation , EHR training or even EHR access. Rude, disrespectful, lazy support staff who can't be bothered to work up a patient or put an urgent referral through. No support from management. Career management are to busy covering their own incompetent asses to get anything done. IHS pours billions of dollars down the drain over treating and medicating non compliant patients, instead of addressing the real problem: uncontrolled diabetes , alcoholism and obesity .

Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourself. Oh, that is right...you can't because chances are you are an incompetent, lazy bootlicker who could not get another job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: The jobs are easy to get, no one wants to… Cons: Outsiders walk on egg shells, USPHS outdated and outmoded and exists as a good government job.
