General Internist 100-1215

Reference Number
100-1215

We are currently a group of 18 specialists in General Internal Medicine serving the two tertiary referral hospitals in Victoria.

At the Royal Jubilee Hospital we act as the attending physicians on the Clinical Teaching unit which has three teams with both senior and junior IM residents, off service Junior Residents along with 3rd and 4th year medical students. . We also run an Internal Medicine Consult service, primarily responsible for providing IM support for the surgical services.

At the Victoria General Hospital we run three concurrent in-patient services: one for MRP patients, primarily on the telemetry unit, as well as a consult service for admitted patients and an Electrodiagnostics service (treadmills, pharmacological stress testing, ECG and HOLTER reporting).

Victoria also has a satellite Internal Medicine residency program through the University of British Columbia, training 4-5 residents per year along with the undergraduate Island Medical program, and our division members play an integral role in teaching and training for both programs. All of our members obtain faculty positions through the University of British Columbia.

At both hospital sites we are very well supported by a robust hospitalist service and have excellent specialty and sub-specialty support in the city.

In addition to in-patient work, we also staff Urgent Referral Clinics at both sites to see referrals from our Emergency Departments as well as urgent referral from Primary Care with a wide array of medical issues.

We are a dynamic and rapidly expanding group of physicians and are enthusiastic to welcome new ideas from new members.

We are seeking two 1.0FTE physicians to join our group to replace colleagues who are moving into full time community practice. New recruits will be asked to cover at least 18 weeks of in-patient work spread between both hospital sites between July 2020 and June 2021 along with at least 4 weeks of coverage at one of the UMAC clinics.

For more information on the positions, please do not hesitate to contact me (brian.mcardle@viha.ca). We are very open to facilitating a brief locum or elective for those who would be interested in experiencing our work environment.
