We are recruiting a full time general Hematologist to join our team in Kelowna.
This position is quite unique with respect to the flexibility it offers: daytime hours/vacation allocation and potential for hybrid home office/clinic work.
There is a large catchment area serviced by the Hematology Department – we are responsible for the referral population of approximately 1,000,000.
The position is challenging with a focus on collegiality and team wellness. The work-life balance is paramount to the retention of our group so looking for someone who is willing to do 1 in 4 rotation for consults/outside call coverage (weekday time only) …this is a team approach that gives everyone ample time to focus on family and lifestyle.
The successful candidate will have a flexible, growth minded vision and excellent consultative hematology skills. We do both benign and malignant – this is not a niche role so looking to find a candidate who will embrace the full scope of Hematology work, including chemotherapy privileges at our BC Cancer Center, which is attached to the KGH.
We are passionate about what we do and work closely with our team of skilled and dedicated health care professionals, support staff, and physicians.
Our affiliation with the University of British Columbia (UBC) creates an opportunity for teaching new grads and residents if that appeals to you. This is an opportunity, but not a pre-requisite.
If you are interested in pursuing a future with us, we would consider a 1 year locum opportunity to establish that we are what you are looking for and want to stay indefinitely!
We hope to engage in a more in-depth conversation about the details of this opportunity if you are interested. We want to know what is important to you and how this would be a good fit for both of us.
For those interested, Leadership Development Opportunities are available with Interior Health’s NAVIG8 Program. The NAVIG8 Emerging Physician Leaders Program is a comprehensive leadership development program designed specifically for physicians to address the practical leadership knowledge, behaviours and skills that high potential, emerging medical leaders require to step into leadership roles early in their careers.
