This is a great opportunity to take over a full-time, established, varied practice in a private clinic. This three-physician clinic has very friendly and supportive physician colleagues, excellent staff and very low overhead. Emergency Department shifts are available if interested. Obstetrics is desired but not essential. Physicians are responsible for their own inpatient coverage at Cariboo Memorial Hospital on weekdays, and one-in-four weekend coverage. Office overhead is approximately 15 – 20 per cent of gross earnings.
Family Physicians in this community are strongly encouraged to support IH services, including rural ER, LTC, OAT, Maternity, etc., as part of their community practice. For more information on what IH services are provided in this community, please contact your IH or Division recruiter.
