Kamloops is a vibrant city of 100,000, at the northern extension of productive wine country in south central British Columbia. We sit in the middle of lakes, mountains, ski hills, and river systems. 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. There are amenities not often found in smaller urban centres. University affiliations provide rejuvenation and an atmosphere to keep learning.
Enjoy work in a well run, established Stroke/Rehabilitation combined unit where neurologists collaborate with physiatry and a dedicated unit MRP Hospitalist. In this position you will enjoy dedicated clinic space and admin support in the Clinical Services Building (CSB), opened in 2016. The CSB houses a modern Electrophysiology Lab for those interested in provision of regional EMG, EEG, and/or Polysomnography services.

Urgent Neurology/Stroke Clinic if you would like to do outreach work.
Subspecialty interests are an asset – particularly in MS, Stroke, and EMG/EEG/PSG – but not necessary.
The current group has certifications in Neurophysiology, Vascular Neurology, and Movement Disorders.
Our tertiary care, UBC-affiliated teaching hospital offers an excellent team of emergency medicine physicians, five neurosurgeons (four active and one consulting), two vascular surgeons, a physiatrist, hospitalists, family physicians, general internists, intensivists, cardiologists, nephrologists, infectious disease specialists, radiologists, and other subspecialists who are a pleasure to work with.
RIH has a state-of-the-art ICU, a recently renovated ER that has led the way in EMR documentation in BC, and newly developed Rapid Access Cardiology and Internal Medicine Outpatient Services that work alongside Neurology in the CSB. Be part of the action as we prepare to open a new Patient Care Tower in 2022.
