Improving CNMI health and wellbeing

Come join our dedicated team in providing high-quality inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care to an underserved, but appreciative, tropical island community!  Move ahead with us!

Who Are We?

The Commonwealth Health Corporation (CHCC) is an 86 Bed hospital. The medical staff provide medical care for a diverse multi-cultural community who reside on three islands that make up the U.S. Territory that is called the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).

Where Are We?

CNMI is part of an island chain located north of Guam in the western pacific. The three inhabited islands are Saipan, Tinian and Rota. Saipan is home to 85% of the population and the territory’s only hospital. The islands are rich in history from the arrival of pacific islanders through World War II battles.

Saipan is a tropical island surrounded by a large reef and boasts some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the world with several easily accessible ship and plane wrecks as well as our world-famous Grotto. The beaches are pristine and only a short drive or walk away. There are many great locations for hiking, biking, and many other activities. Additionally, Saipan is a perfect launching point for travel to many parts of Asia and southeast Asia with affordable direct flights to Tokyo Japan, Seoul and Busan South Korea, Guam, and expected return of direct flights to Hong Kong. And the best part is you will have time to do all these things!

Who Works Here?

The medical staff is as diverse as the island’s population. The staff include physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants from all ages and backgrounds. Many have just completed training and take advantage of the loan repayment program. Others are at the end of their careers and are looking for adventure. Some came just for a break from practicing on the mainland and decided to stay.

Where Do You Fit?

We are looking for Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrists to join our current staff who are open to try something new. If you like adventure, relaxed island life, outdoor sports and travel you might fit in here. If you like seeing patients without being rushed and practicing medicine on your own terms then you might like it here. Our psychiatrists provide inpatient, outpatient, telemedicine and consultation services to the 50,000 people who call CNMI home. Your work will include outpatients, inpatients, consultations and on call duties that are done mostly by telephone. Psychiatric care is provided on Tinian and Rota by telemedicine and scheduled in-person clinic days.

What is great about this job?

·         Tropical island climate without seasons, steady average temp of 84 degrees with occasional short rain showers.

·         World-class snorkeling & diving, plus golf, hiking, water sports, great restaurants, etc.

·         Affordable jumping-off point for exploring Asia and the Western Pacific Islands.
