Oliver

Surrounded by picturesque orchards, and vineyards framed by forested mountains, Oliver is known as the “Wine Capital of Canada”, and an ideal location for outdoor recreational pursuits. Oliver’s abundance of agriculture makes it easy to enjoy fresh local produce from fruit and vegetables stands. Opportunities for water sports, including windsurfing, canoeing and fishing, are almost limitless given the abundance of lakes in the area. Life in Oliver also offers activities such as cycling, wildlife viewing and horseback riding. The friendly multicultural community of Oliver is set apart by its unique story-book buildings that line the down town area and its upbeat arts and music community.

Practice Details:

We are looking for a 3rd Physician to join our practice.

We are a friendly and flexible group practice of two looking for a third, sharing the office with 6 exam rooms. Our office is on MedAccess as our EMR and we are paperless within the office. We have a light filled, new office located on a ground floor for easy access with a small staff room.

Our exceptional MOA team is able to work in a very fast paced environment; our MOAs handle our daily tasks efficiently and on time with ease, and maximize each day with very efficient booking and workflow systems. Our MOAs assist our patients and physicians so that everyone’s needs are taken care of in a timely, compassionate manner.

Our Office Manager bills for us as a private and separate arrangement and oversees all CDM billing/reports to make sure we maximize our billing potential.

Each physician has their own patient panel and clinic schedule, which is negotiable, but we help each other out when on leave, though we have always enjoyed good locum support as well. We care for our patients in two residential care facilities. We are 30 minutes from Penticton Regional Hospital with excellent specialist services which are very supportive of family practice and there is an active local “Division of Family Practice” engaged in improving community primary care systems.

Additional Opportunities: rural emergency room at South Okanagan General Hospital, Walk in Clinic Shifts at Osoyoos Indian Band, and Doctor of the Day rotation (approx. 1 weekend every 5 months).
