Job Description

MD - Primary Care
The Trail of the Ancient Byway

The Community - Navajo Nation, Shiprock, NM
Witness the sculpted horizons of the southwest, where man-made boundaries mean nothing to the rugged lands. Here the past is the present where Hopi families still carry water to pueblo villages perched atop high mesas. Granaries at Keet Seel ruins in Navajo National Monument hold corn cobs stored seven centuries ago. Navajo families farm centuries-old field in Canyon de Chelly National Monument, site of prehistoric cliff dwelling inhabited by the Anasazi, ancestors of today's Pueblo Tribes. And Hopi and Navajo artisans still sell their trademark rugs and jewelry at the Hubble Trading Post.
