Primary Care Residency Opportunity – Holistic Health Clinic (Tacoma, Washington)

We are accepting applications for a residency position at the Holistic Health Clinic.

The Holistic Health Clinic, established in 1987, is a busy primary care practice serving a diverse patient population. We are a Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) accredited naturopathic residency site and have mentored, through our residency opportunity, many first and second year doctors for over 17 years.

We see all ages and treat a variety of conditions, ranging from acute illness to chronic disease. Treatment modalities are varied, with an emphasis placed on diet and other lifestyle modification methods that target disease resolution. Our health care team is led by Dr. Owen Miller, our clinical director and practicing physician. We have three associate physicians and three resident physicians to round out our back office staff. Our teamwork approach carries through to inspire a collective wisdom that supports every doctor’s patient care success.

You will receive direct supervision and mentoring from Dr. Susan Judah, one of our experienced associates. Dr. Judah sees an average of 14 patients per day with a focus on women’s health, hormone replacement, adrenal fatigue, digestive disorders, detoxification, and dietary modification for weight loss and chronic disease. You will spend the majority of your time directly supporting patient care encounters. Daily tasks include but not limited to: patient intakes, vitals and physical exams, blood draws and vitamin injections, patient call backs and assistance with administrative tasks, such as recording lab results, managing prescriptions, and supporting the front desk and our clinic’s dispensary. Our residents share the responsibility of carrying the office pager after hours and on weekends (rarely activated) as well as processing patient samples in our clinic’s lab.

Every effort is made by the supervising physician to include the resident in developing treatment plans, discussing difficult cases, and reviewing patient management strategies. All of the other doctors in the clinic are available to facilitate learning as well. This residency is an amazing opportunity to see a large number of patients and to cultivate the many facets of being a functional primary care doctor while receiving one-on-one mentoring from successful naturopaths.

A diploma from an accredited naturopathic medical school is mandatory. Washington State licensure is not required.
