Medical Board Physician

The Maine Public Employees Retirement System (MainePERS or Retirement System) seeks to engage a Psychiatrist with a keen interest in working collaboratively with other medical physicians for the Medical Board.

The Maine Public Employees Retirement System (MainePERS or Retirement System) seeks to engage a Psychiatrist with a keen interest in working collaboratively with other medical physicians for the Medical Board. MainePERS administers a disability retirement program for eligible members of the Retirement System.   The Board of Trustees engages physicians as independent contractors to serve on a Medical Board.  That Board evaluates medical records and provides consultations to MainePERS and its hearing officers regarding the existence of diagnosable conditions and the presence and permanency of functional limitations in disability cases.

This work is file review in conjunction with investigation and critical evaluation of detail, much of which can be done independently at home, with one meeting a month lasting 2-3 hours here at the Retirement System.   Physicians of the Medical Board must hold a Maine Physician’s license in good standing and be Board Certified in their area.  Medical Board physicians work under contract in an advisory capacity on an hourly fee basis.  Typical time commitment is approximately 25 hours per month with flexibility of scheduling.    This is a contract position and not eligible for benefits.
