Oncology Opportunity in the VA Health Care System
City:Fargo
State:ND
Country:USA
Visas Accepted:H1
Specialty:Oncology
Opportunity Description:

The Fargo VA Health Care System is actively recruiting for a full time staff Oncologist to join our established team.    

This is an opportunity to practice in a highly collegial environment and at a facility  consistently recognized as one of the best in all of VA for “best places to work” on the All Employee Survey! 

The Fargo VA is closely affiliated with the University of North Dakota School of Medicine.  A successful applicant may seek and reasonably expect a faculty appointment.  Teaching as well as research opportunities exist for physicians who wish to pursue these professional interests.  The Fargo/Moorhead area is a vibrant community featuring three universities, a thriving arts scene, festivals, shopping, night life and sports.  

Whether you're interested in academics, research, or a better work/life balance, you'll find the VA has a lot to offer, including the unmatched satisfaction you'll get from caring for those who have served our country. In addition to competitive pay and liability protection, the VA also offers a robust benefits plan that includes:

Paid Time Off:

  • 208 Hours paid annual (vacation/personal) leave – you can carry over up to 86 days into a new year
  • 104 Hours paid sick leave per year with unlimited carry over! Unused sick leave can be used to extend creditable service time at retirement! 
  • 10 Paid federal holidays with pay
  • Possible 5 Days paid Authorized Absence to attend CME

Insurance:

  • Health Insurance: VA employees have an outstanding number of health insurance plans from which to choose (premiums are partially paid by VA)
  • Dental & Vision: Our insurance options also include exceptional vision and dental plans (premiums are partially paid by VA)
  • VA employees have the option to use Flexible Spending Accounts, which allow you to use tax-free dollars to pay for medical, dental, and vision care expenses that are not reimbursed by your health insurance plan
  • Term life insurance, family, and additional coverage options are available with the cost shared by the Federal Government.
  • Long-term care insurance is available as an option

Federal Retirement Plan:

  • VA employees are covered by the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). FERS is a three-tiered retirement plan composed of 1) Social Security benefits; 2) FERS-FRAE basic benefits (pension); and 3) Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) which is a 401K-type plan
  • How is the pension funded? VA employees hired after January 1, 2014 automatically contribute 4.4% of their salary each pay period and the VA contributes 8.3% of the employee's salary each pay period for a total annual contribution percentage equal to 12.7% of the employee's salary
  • Similar to the 401(k) savings plans widely available in the private sector, the TSP allows employees to tax defer a portion of their income each year, subject to the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service. For calendar year 2016, employees under the age of 50 may contribute up to $18,000, while those over age 50 are eligible to make catch-up contributions that allow them to defer up to $24,000
  • The Federal Government also provides an automatic basic contribution (1% of salary) and up to 4% of salary in matching contributions, depending on the amount of the employee contribution
  • For retired military personnel, these benefits are in addition to full monthly retirement pay or pension
  • In addition to FERS, VA provides health care insurance coverage for retired personnel
  • Disability Retirement
  • Employees are vested in a federal pension after only 5 years' service
