THE OPPORTUNITY

Opportunities exists in a group-based practice in Castlegar where your Emergency skills will be an asset. In addition we have a nurse practitioner as well as regular support from an IHN Nurse, counsellor and psychiatrist. The Clinic is supported by EMR. 

We are 25 minutes from the regional hospital which has both hospitalist and specialist consultants to look after our admitted patients. We cover the local ER which is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Our opening hours are Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Working hours are flexible within these times. Each physician has his/her own office and exam rooms, all equipped with computers and printers. 

DETAILS

Castlegar Medical Clinic (IHA-5641)

This clinic is seeking a full-time or part-time Family Practitioner to join their group of seven multinational doctors, two practice nurses, and a highly organized group of friendly office staff.

Current Physicians have a great dynamic in the clinic and are very supportive of any new colleagues. The practice has an established base of patients with room for growth.

Physicians and staff use the Profile electronic medical records system by Intrahealth, and have been on this system for the past three years. The clinic has an effective in-house biller to ensure we are not undervaluing ourselves. We have in-house access to a Chronic Disease Management Nurse a well as in–house counseling and psychiatric sessions.

Work in the local emergency room is encouraged and has approximately a one-in-ten rotation. On call hours are 8AM to 8PM. No night call. Obstetric practice with intra-partum care is available (two of our clinic physicians deliver in the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail). No care for hospital in-patients is required but taking part in the local hospitalist rotation can be applied for.

If any of this interests you contact us for a site-visit and couple it with your next outdoor adventure; we ski, rock climb, mountain bike, fly fish, kayak, or hike right out our back door!
