Golden
Stunning scenery, crisp mountain air, and world revered outdoor recreation are at your doorstep. The cozy mountain town of Golden lies at the junction of the lazy Columbia River and roaring Kicking Horse River providing a wealth of outdoor adventures for every skill level and every interest. With spectacular mountain biking, ice-climbing, river rafting, and six national and provincial parks in the region, Golden is a utopia for the outdoor enthusiast. Like the juxtaposition of the two rivers, Golden’s high energy recreation is complemented by its charming downtown and arts community. Large shade trees decorate streets and film festivals and touring musicians are hosted annually by the Golden District Arts Council.

We are looking for a Family Practitioner with ESS training to join the medical team in beautiful Golden BC! This future colleague would also be interested in full service rural Family Practice that includes ER and Hospital care.

The single medical clinic in town has 14 physicians: 13 GP FTEs plus 1 experienced general surgeon (20+ years). Our surgeon has an academic background and is prepared to support a young trainee.

The Golden OR is evolving. We have local general surgery, GP C/S capability, and a robust endoscopy program. Call is frequent but light with no more than 6 call backs a week and perhaps 1 OR case a month. Please enquire to learn more about the breadth of surgical services provided in Golden and to learn how we strive to meet and maintain standards of care equivalent to any major center.

We are a close, collaborative and collegial team and we seek a colleague who is equally collaborative to help ensure that our surgical program thrives. Get in touch to learn how you can have a challenging but rewarding practice and still have an amazing lifestyle.
