Can You Provide Care for Chinese Patients? 

  • There is currently a very high need for family physicians in Vancouver that can speak Cantonese and/or Mandarin. 
  • In addition to our general retirement support for Vancouver FPs, the Vancouver Division is working with several FPs serving Vancouver's Chinese community who are planning to retire in the next 1-5 years . With thousands of Cantonese and Mandarin speaking patients projected to be in need of care in the upcoming years, there are many practices that are ready for complete takeover or patients ready to be moved. 
  • If you are a Cantonese/Mandarin-Speaking family physician licensed to work in BC and are looking to either take over an already established family practice, or to add some patients to your already existing patient panel, please contact our team.
