Because Gillette offers a broad range of specialties and services for patients, physician positions vary widely. Their purpose, however, is the same: to help our pediatric and adult patients improve their health and live their lives more independently. Gillette physicians are fellowship trained and board-certified.

Be Part of World Class Care in the Heart of the Upper Midwest!

Gillette offers a working environment that supports career advancement through clinical practice, research and education. Many of our physicians pursue academic appointments through the University of Minnesota. Others work at Gillette while remaining active in pediatric- and adult-focused private practice.

We're proud to share that a 2017 WalletHub study ranked Minnesota number two overall as the best state to practice medicine for physicians. WalletHub also ranked Minnesota as number one for the best medical environment. In addition, in 2017, Medscape named Minnesota as the best place to practice medicine to avoid burnout.

Current physician opportunities are listed below.
