Practice Details:

  • The Wahpeton/Breckenridge area supports a service region of approximately 45,000 people.
  • The population demographic for Family Medicine is made up of approximately 20% pediatrics, 25% geriatrics and 55% adult.
  • Obstetrics is preferred but not required.
  • Physicians may pre-select the level of OB to maintain a balance.
  • Traditionally Sanford physicians will deliver their patient's babies unless out of town.
  • Additional areas of interest that would be welcome include sports medicine and occupational health.

Sanford Clinic Wahpeton employs three sports trainers to support local high schools and North Dakota State College of Science.  The community is growing and the industrial base has provided a solid foundation for occupational medicine if interested.

You can expect to see approximately 25 outpatients per day.  Inpatients levels will vary from zero to three.  Currently there is a one to two week waiting period to see most providers on a 'non-urgent matter'.  A physician can practice whichever skills they are trained in and credentialed to provide.  Call is community call and is expected to be 1:8. An outside group provides evening coverage for the emergency room at St. Francis Medical Center located in Breckenridge, Minnesota.  If on call, you will be called to admit, if necessary.

Sanford Health offers a guaranteed salary for the first two years.  Comprehensive benefits are offered along with paid malpractice insurance, relocation allowance and much more.
