Are you looking to practice medicine and maintain a positive work-life balance? A career with California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS)/California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) allows you to focus on providing quality health care without the burdens of managing insurance paperwork or an unrealistic patient panel. In addition to a CA medical license, you must possess documentation of COVID-19 vaccination or medical/religious exemption.

Here, in a supportive, collaborative environment, and in conjunction with our dedicated psychiatrists, you will deliver primary care to a diverse patient population within the Psychiatric Inpatient Program at Salinas Valley State Prison.

We currently have opportunities at Salinas Valley State Prison, located in Monterey County’s Soledad.  Here, you’ll have access to all of the activities, history, and cultural events of Monterey, Big Sur, and Carmel-by-the-Sea.  Plus, with the positive work-life balance you’ll find with CCHCS, you’ll be able to enjoy them all.

In return for your efforts, CCHCS/CDCR offers a competitive compensation package, including:

  • 40-hour workweek – affords you true work-life balance
  • Generous paid time off and holiday schedule
  • Secure State of California pension that vests in five years
  • Paid CME with paid time off to attend
  • Robust 401(k) and 457 retirement options – tax defer up to $48k per year
  • Paid insurance, license, and DEA renewal
  • And much more
