The Nanaimo site of the Vancouver Island Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, has immediate need for a half-time nephrology physician.
The Vancouver Island Health Authority coordinates the delivery of health care to the nearly 800,000 residents of Vancouver Island and the many surrounding islands. Our full-service renal program has now been open in Nanaimo for 6.5 years. Facilities include an 18 station hospital-based in-centre hemodialysis unit, a Home Dialysis Clinic (peritoneal and hemodialysis), 3 community dialysis facilities, and a multi-disciplinary Central Island Kidney Care Clinic. Together these facilities support the care of approximately 230 dialysis patients and several thousand CKD patients living in the central and north island.
The Central Island Nephrology group is presently comprised of six full-time nephrologists working in Nanaimo, one who will reduce workload to halftime. We function in a cross-coverage service model where each nephrologist provides a share of inpatient service, while maintaining a comprehensive nephrology practice including attending patients in CKD, Transplant follow-up and PD clinics.
We are seeking an individual with training, skills and experience in all aspects of clinical nephrology - hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, pre- and post-transplant care, hypertension, and general clinical nephrology. The successful applicant will have FRCPC designations in Internal Medicine and have completed fellowship training in Nephrology. They will work with a group of hard-working, team-oriented and patient-focused renal care providers.
