The Bridge Medical Clinic located just south of Campbell River on Vancouver Island, is seeking a new family physician to replace one of four doctors, starting ideally in May of 2021.
Our clinic, created in 2012, literally bridges the two communities of Comox Valley and Campbell River, located right at the beautiful Oyster River. We provide medical services to a significant population in this semi-rural region between the two larger cities. We offer a full service family practice, with 6 day a week urgent care, a small procedural room, and pharmacy on site. We are a well-equipped and smooth functioning clinic, with four supportive MOA's, dedicated billing staff, Oscar EMR and collegial colleagues, providing a much appreciated and needed service to our local community. We are also robustly set up for both virtual and in person appointments.
As we blend urgent walk in care with full service family practice, our collegial physicians can easily cross- cover each other, allowing excellent flexibility for time off, optional work in LTC, Maternity or ER, CME or part-time practice. Hospital privileges in either Campbell River or Comox hospitals is preferred but optional. There is a well-established stable patient panel to take over and an attractive overhead/ cost sharing arrangement.
Our local division of family practice is very active and are there to support transitioning and orientation to the community to both the practitioners and their families. They have created an informative video and web resource that gives a flavour of our region:
