We are a group practice of 4 full-service (clinic + hospital) GPs looking to add 1-2 additional full-service GPs to our group. We each have our own patient panel. We also have 3 semi-retired GPs who run specialty (MOT medicals, prodeduralist and immigration) clinics in our office.
We are located directly across the road from the hospital, making it quite easy to do inpatient rounds.
For hospital coverage, we all agree to cover each other for 1 week out of every 5-6 (depending on number of docs). Most weeks, this simply means you cover the physicians who want to sign out on the weekend, but on some occasions when a physician is simply gone for a single or few days and can’t arrange a locum, you may also cover for those patients during the week. Generally, we find that, if you plan in advance, most of us are pretty able to switch so that you can arrange holiday time when you need to.
Additional local opportunities outside of the clinic (not-mandatory):
- Walk-in clinic associated with our office
- Care of patients in LTC
- Surgical assists (local surgical services include plastics, orthopedics, obstetrics/gynecology and general surgery)
- GP oncology (extra training required)
- GP low-risk obstetrics
- Inpatient GP additions consult service (coming; additional training available)
- Opioid Agonist Therapy (at local clinic external to our office)
- GP palliative care consultant service
May be eligible for additional remuneration in accordance with the Rural Subsidiary Agreement (RSA) including:
Recruitment Incentive - $10,000 (pro-rated for less than full time) ; Fee Premium – 6.09%; Annual Flat Fee - $6,123; Rural CME starting at $2,200/annum in years 3 & 4 in the community, increasing to a maximum of $4,400/annum after 4 years.
As soon as possible
Campbell River is a growing small town of about 40,000 people located at the boundary of Northern Vancouver Island. We are home to approximately 35 family physicians and a very supportive group of specialists (6 general internists, 5 general surgeons, 2 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 doable.
