Summerland
Summerland (population 10,828) is an agricultural community with a location that makes it a natural tourist destination. The town centre is situated in a flat area above Okanagan Lake with fertile valleys defined by forested ridges. People come to Summerland to buy fruit from local farms, taste the vintages of Bottleneck Drive wineries, ride the Kettle Valley Steam Railway, see the work of artists in galleries and studios, play golf and to make the most of the town’s gardens and parks with hiking, cycling, water activities and wildlife viewing.
Facility Details — Rosedale Medical Clinic:
Rosedale Medical Clinic is a private clinic supported by 7 physicians that work with the Penticton Regional Hospital.
Practice Details:

This opportunity is in the heart of sunny Okanagan wine country, where lifestyle and rewarding medical practice combine perfectly. Summerland is a lovely town on the western shore of Okanagan Lake with a rich agricultural history, fabulous wineries, sandy beaches, and so much more.

One of our partners has plans to retire in the near future, so we are searching for a replacement to take over his practice in the Rosedale Medical group clinic in downtown Summerland. We are a friendly and flexible group practice of eight family physicians, sharing an office with 5 sets of exam rooms, and it is a fun place to practice medicine. We have a well-equipped procedure room, and light-filled office space on the second floor of a dedicated medical building, with wonderful support from both nurses and medical office assistants.

Each physician has her/his own patient panel and clinic schedule, which is negotiable, but we help each other out. We share hospital rounds (one week out of seven) and after-hours clinic work (one evening every other week), and help cover each other for leaves if needed, though we have always enjoyed good locum support. Obstetrics and emergency are not required, but there may be opportunities for those interested. Surgical assists and addictions/mental health clinic work is also available to qualified applicants.

The practice available has 400-500 patients and has well maintained and updated electronic records (Med-Access since 2008). It has traditionally been run with 4 half office day per week, and provides a historical income of $185-220,000 per year. Office overheads are shared fairly with the other members of the group.

Interested applicants would be offered a 6 month 'locum' where they would bill, and pay overhead, as if a full part of the group but get to try out the practice, see if it is a good fit for them and vice versa, before signing on as a full partner when they are ready.

We admit to Penticton Regional Hospital (area population 40,000) 15 minutes south of us, and see patients in Summerland's residential care facilities. The hospital has excellent specialist services which are very supportive of family practice, and there isan active local "Division of Family Practice" engaged in improving community primary care systems.

Our clinic is one of four primary sites for the UBC Southern Medical Residency Program, so you will have opportunity to teach and mentor, if desired. We also regularly host medical students and pride ourselves on providing learners a good experience in Summerland.

Recreational activities abound, from the lakes and hike/bike trails to the nearby world-class ski hills. We also have excellent educational & cultural resources available, and--for those wanting more traffic or an urban fix--Kelowna (metropolitan area population 180,000) is under an hour's drive away, and Vancouver less than an hour's flight. We are not too big or too small- just right.
