Central Okanagan Division of Family Practice

Physician Opportunities

The Central Okanagan Division membership was surveyed in 2014 to better understand the needs of our local physicians and their clinics. We gathered information on when physicians are considering retirement from their practices.

Current Opportunities

This information is now kept by the Division and can be shared with physicians looking for opportunities. Please connect with us via email (mmclean@divisionsbc.ca) to inquire regarding positions in the Central Okanagan
