We enjoy biking, hiking, skiing, water sports, all right here in our backyard. Our community has an excellent educational system, organized sports, music and theatre.

Practice Details:

Hospitalists play a core role in Royal Inland Hospital (RIH) by providing MRP and consultative care for inpatients. The patient case load is diverse, and the work is rewarding for this reason. Of note, hospitalists do not provide MRP coverage for obstetrical or pediatric patients.

On-site hours are generally 0800-1800 with an average of 18-22 inpatients per day. There is one overnight call and one late shift per week. Scheduling is generally seven days on, seven days off for full time employment. Emergency physicians will admit patients overnight and the majority of calls are managed from home via telephone and remote computer access; it is rare to have to come in.

For those interested in teaching, RIH has 12 family practice residents, a satellite UBC clerkship 3rd year program, and visiting 4th year medical students.
