Trail - Columbia Family Care Clinic (IHA-5921)

Be part of a team where each provider has their own unique role and scope in the provision of patient care and you work together to make sure that the patient’s needs are met in the most effective way possible.

Salaried GP contract available to join a collegial group of 3 GPs sharing a spacious clinic in downtown Trail. Work in a friendly and efficient multidisciplinary environment with in-clinic support from a full-time experienced Registered Nurse. Clinic layout boasts a welcoming waiting room, a minor operating room (OR), Electrocardiography (EKG) equipment, and each GP has an office with a view and 2 light-filled, well-equipped exam rooms. Specialty support available at the nearby Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital includes Anesthesia, General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Internal Medicine, ICU, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Plastics, Urology, Pathology, ENT, and Ophthalmology.

This salaried position will integrate into our existing network of full-service primary care providers, and can be combined with fee-for-service practice such as OR assists, hospitalist or emergency care. The position is remunerated by a clinic service contract, and requires the GP to work a minimum 1680 hours and 220 days per year (pro-rated for part time positions), providing for great flexibility in establishing your work/life balance. The Service Contract rates are competitively set and increase over the term of the three year contract. Recruitment is initially targeted to family practitioners who do not currently have a patient panel in the region.

The primary care clinic next door also has a salaried GP contract available, and both clinics will work collaboratively with the candidates interested to identify the ideal fit. Both clinics are part of the same Primary Care Network and share multidisciplinary resources.
