Family Physician - Private Clinic


Perched on the edge of Lake Windermere, in the valley between the Rocky and Purcell Mountain ranges, Invermere is the economic hub of the Columbia Valley. Offering spectacular mountain scenery, abundant outdoor activity and nearby Fairmont and Radium hot springs, Invermere benefits from a healthy tourism industry. Recreation and culture unite with year-round recreational opportunities including heli-skiing, snowmobiling, white-water rafting, and golf. Local and international artists’ work can be found at galleries throughout the city and relaxed downtown district. Also birdwatcher’s paradise, Invermere celebrates the return of over 250 species of birds with its annual Wings over the Rockies Festival each May.

Practice Details:

Work with an experienced female practice partner in a 5 physician clinic with a well established patient panel. You would work 2-3 days in the clinic as well as share in the ER call schedule which would be 5-6 shifts per month. Day shifts on call would be 6 hrs and night shifts are 12 hours. As a FP you also have inpatient care both in the hospital and our Long Term Care facility. Your practice partners are flexible and would work with you to determine the optimum scheduling.

Through the UBC Medical School we teach Family Practice Residents and Medical Students completing the rural component of their training. They typically describe their experiences as invaluable!

Emergency call for full time is roughly 1:9, typically 1 X 12 hour shift/week and 1:4 weekends a month. The ER shifts can be challenging but our ER is modern, well equipped and well supported. GP’s also provide the hospital and long term care coverage for their local inpatients. We receive MOCAP funding and Rural Emergency Enhancement Funding (REEF).

Invermere is a terrific place to raise a family with well managed schools, many sports and outdoor opportunities, as well as art and music opportunities!
