CASTLEGAR - Castlegar Medical Clinic
CASTLEGAR MEDICAL CLINIC (IHA-8327)
Come live and work where others only vacation!
We would like to welcome an additional GP to our clinic. We are a collegial working group that can help you design the practice you want, whether it be full-spectrum care, or family practice with a special interest in geriatrics, pediatrics, or obstetrics. Obstetrics is not required, but ER is required. We expect a new physician to provide 3-4 Emergency shifts /per month. Hospitalist opportunities occasionally arise in the regional hospital in Trail.
Castlegar is located at the confluence of two great rivers – the Kootenay and the Columbia – which come together to form a fertile valley with a rich cultural heritage and a thriving artistic scene. This convergence results in a lifestyle that physicians in particular love: flexible practice options, access to the outdoors and a great place to raise your family. All reasons why Castlegar is becoming one of the most desirable places to live in the Kootenays.
‘Go with the flow' has a whole new meaning here, in the place where rivers shape both landscape and lifestyle. We have what you might call a streamlined approach to both work and life. No-nonsense. Level-headed. Sure, we can access full-on adventures in nearby Nelson and Rossland whenever we want, but sometimes we like our adventures on the quieter side.
From Castlegar, it’s a quick drive to three alpine ski hills nearby, at Red Mountain, Whitewater or Salmo. The epic mountain bike trails in Rossland and Nelson are only thirty minutes away. But you’ll soon find plenty to keep you engaged right here.
Enjoy strolls along the riverbanks, or high alpine treks on dozens of well-maintained hikes. Rock climbers – sport climbers, trad climbers and boulderers – have been coming here since the 1950s and as a result, the climbing community is well established. There are 70 rock climbs within city limits, 70 kilometers of snowmobiling trails in nearby Pass Creek, and 45 kilometers of packed and tracked trails for all levels at the nearby Paulson Cross Country Ski Trails.
