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.
A dynamic, collegial and lifestyle oriented 29 person group is looking to add additional team members, and encourage both full time and part time applicants.
We work under an APP contract for emergency and a MOCAP contract for our Trauma Team Leader (TTL) program, working 14 shifts a month between the two programs (if you are full time). This leaves plenty of time to take advantage of the outdoor wonderland that surrounds Kamloops. Enjoy skiing at Sun Peaks or the back country, mountain biking year round (if you dare), beautiful lakes, golf courses and world class sports facilities in the Tournament Capital Centre. And you instantly have 29 friends to do these activities with!
Royal Inland Hospital is a one of the two tertiary care hospitals in the interior of British Columbia. Our department sees approximately 75,000 visits per year and is the third busiest trauma centre in BC. The hospital has just added a new clinical care tower and our department is going to be fully renovated and expanded in the next two years.
Our group maintains current practice standards by holding monthly journal clubs, quality rounds and trauma rounds often at our homes, combining learning and socializing. Our learners include 3rd year medical students doing their core rotations in our hospital, 4th year students on electives, a family practice residency program with 8 residents per year, and starting in 2023 a third year CCFP EM program with 2 residents per year.
In addition to seeking permanent members we are looking for short or long terms locums immediately, until we have completed our hiring.
Candidates with their CCFPEM, FRCPC or ABEM are encouraged to apply.
