Vernon's small city charm melds with its year-round cultural events, festivals, and celebrations. Whether it's a morning on the greens or a day on a lake, this is the place where you become the hero of your own story. Celebrate the glorious sunshine with hiking and biking trails, lush orchards, and farmers markets galore! Once the snow flies, explore the winter carnival or strap on your downhill or cross-country skis, snowboards and snowshoes and head up to Silver Star Mountain for some of the best winter recreation around. Vernon’s unique history, diversified economy, and attractive climate offer residents a highly desirable balance of small-town charm combined with the amenities of an urban centre.
The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Emergency Room Physicians Group is currently seeking full-time emergency room physicians to join their team in 2022. Our ED sees approximately 50000 patient visits per year and encompasses a dynamic patient population reflective of our community's diversity. We are practicing in a new and spacious ER with fantastic support staff and excellent specialist services.
Full-time employment includes 12 shifts per month. Each member in our group also contributes to the non-clinical workload. Candidates must have CCFP-EM, or FRCPC. We are a cohesive group of active ERPs in a busy and varied community ED practice. Excellent local specialist services, a keen ED staff, access to tertiary care support, and a diverse patient population all make for a dynamic ED environment. As a group, we are actively involved in medical student and resident training, SIMS educational sessions, and journal club activities.
In addition to our interesting and busy ED, the North Okanagan offers amazing outdoor lifestyle opportunities that all members of our group actively participate in. Downhill skiing, nordic skiing, mountain biking, road riding, boating, paddling, and hiking are all situated in our backyard. Imagine going for a ski on our world class nordic trails, or ripping up the local mountain bike trails, prior to a shift! A healthy balance of work and life in a location with an outdoor playground for a backyard is what makes our ED practice in Vernon enjoyable and sustainable.
