Nanaimo is a regional centre for the Island Health Renal Program, providing renal care for a total population of 425,000 in Central and Northern Vancouver Island. The Island Health Division of Nephrology is seeking a general nephrologist to join the Nanaimo clinical group of 6 physicians. This job offering seeks to replace a nephrologist and will therefore come with a complement of dialysis, transplant and kidney care patients.
The successful candidate will be offered full integration into the group with a target equal allocation of 14-18 total weeks of inpatient service and hemodialysis, which is on par with current full time nephrologists in Nanaimo. They will provide service in all areas of general nephrology including kidney care clinic, independent dialysis, and renal transplant clinic. In addition, he or she will share proportionate on-call requirements and will be expected to maintain an outpatient community practice with similar capacity to other full time nephrologists in Nanaimo.
The position requires English fluency and excellent communications and interpersonal skills. Remuneration is fee for service as outlined by the medical services plan of British Columbia as well as full MOCAP paid in accordance with on-call services provided. Fellowship training in nephrology and medical licensure to practice nephrology in the Province of British Columbia is also required.
The ability to navigate complex advanced care planning discussions is essential. Experience placing bedside peritoneal catheters, or willingness to acquire that skill set will be considered an asset. Additional training or experience in clinical sub-specialty areas of nephrology such as transplantation, GN, and dialysis or medical leadership will be considered a distinguishing attribute.
