Welcome to Shuswap North Okanagan Division of Family Practice

The Shuswap North Okanagan Division of Family Practice is a community-based group of family physicians working together – and with health authorities and community partners – to achieve common goals.

Benefits of Membership

Being a member of a division offers a number of potential benefits, including: 
  • Shared efforts to provide full-spectrum primary care.
  • Greater impact on the organization of local and regional health services around a division practice area.
  • Improved access to health authority and specialist services.
  • Enhanced professional collegiality and access to physician health and wellness programs.
  • Shared efforts for recruitment, retention and locums.
  • Support from colleagues in caring for complex or unattached patients.
  • Reliable assistance with duties historically falling to call groups, such as scheduling and meeting organization.
  • Strong financial and practice support for information technology programs and pilot projects.
  • Cost-savings on office supplies purchased from Corbett Office Supplies and shredding services with Interior Mobile Shredding.

UpToDate Available to Divisions Members

The knowledge system software, UpToDate, is available free of charge, for members of the SNO Division who are included in the calculation for infrastructure funding.

More information:


RxFiles is an academic detailing program providing objective, comparative drug information that is offered free of charge to SNO members. 


RxFiles serves health providers and educators through newsletter reviews, Q&As, Trial Summaries, and up-to-date drug comparison charts.  The clinical relevance of these materials comes from their initial focus as academic detailing tools for the front line practitioner wanting to provide the best possible drug therapy for their patients.
