Closing Date

Hillside Medical Clinic is a group practice of 4 full-service (clinic + hospital) GPs. We are a well established and well respected clinic in the community and would be able to provide great mentorship for an incoming locum physician.

This locum (potential for permanent position) would be covering a full panel of patients and would be expected to work 2.5-4.5 days of clinic per week, depending on their preference. They would also be expected to do inpatient coverage for the away-physicians’ patients during M-F and cover weekends for the clinic for their share of the rotation (1 in 4 weekends).

DATES ARE A BIT FLEXIBLE, as per locum preference

May 1st, 2021 – July 31st, 2021

PREFER one full locum but open to partial coverage

Campbell River is a true Islanders’ paradise, where you can ski Mount Washington in the morning and kayak on the ocean in the afternoon; it is home to old growth forests, mild temperatures and world class mountain biking, hiking, fishing and more. We are a growing city of around 40,000 people that still has the small town feeling with the city amenities. Physicians who live and work here to take advantage of the work-life balance such an environment offers.

Campbell River offers a unique opportunity for full spectrum family practice in a setting with significant specialist support (there are less than 6 hospitals like ours in the province). We are home to approximately 35 family physicians and a very supportive group of specialists (6 general internists, 5 general surgeons, 3 plastic surgeons,

4 orthopedic surgeons, 3 urologists (in Comox) and 2 OB/GYNEs). We have a fantastic cohort of emergency room physicians (combo of CCFP and FRCP trained) who are gracious enough to do admission orders for us, making inpatient care very efficient. Further, we have a brand new hospital (built 2018) overlooking the ocean (I’ve spotted humpbacks while doing my rounds!).

Hillside Clinic is located directly across the road from the hospital, making it quite efficient to do inpatient rounds and always having a free parking space!
