GRAND FORKS - BOUNDARY MEDICAL CLINIC (IHA-7656)
This is your chance to join a strong, cohesive and supportive rural physician team, providing full service primary care in a well-appointed 4-physician office, as well as ER and long-term care at nearby Boundary Hospital.
This financially rewarding practice (with an income potential $500-$600k per year) is centrally located in Grand Forks, the largest community of the Boundary region. Each physician in our clinic has their own MOA, office and two exam rooms, in addition to a treatment room, and a Residents’ exam room. We use the Profile EMR. Pre-natal care only (no deliveries in the community). Interest in geriatric care an asset. Multidisciplinary team includes a primary care Nurse and a Social Worker, as well as a foot care clinic.
You'll qualify for the Rural Locums for BC program, meaning that you have access to a healthy locum coverage pool. Generous rural recruitment and retention incentives available, in addition to $20-30k/year premiums from the Rural Emergency Enhancement Fund (REEF). Opportunity to teach UBC Kootenay Boundary Family Medicine Program’s Residents. Thousands of dollars of training and CME are available through the RCME program and REAP.
Get in touch and we’ll arrange a visit so that you can see for yourself why we love living and working here.
We’re not sure what we should tell you first about Grand Forks. Should we mention that it’s centrally located between two major centers (Spokane and Kelowna)? A city fix, or an international flight, are only two hours away.
But, what if you want to escape all of that? Then we’ll tell you about the two clean-running rivers (the Granby and the Kettle) that surround the town, so you’ll know that a relaxing float, a paddle, or a fishing outing is always within reach.
Should we mention the dappled shade of the cafe patios on Market Street and the friendly, walkable downtown core where City Hall, the library and gallery are all within a few blocks?
Should we tell you about the wide, open spaces, the acreages for sale, the riverside properties?
In Grand Forks, healthy living, affordability and a great quality of life are the baseline.
