Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) Emergency Department sees approximately 95,000 patients per year and houses a Level 1 Trauma Centre.

VGH is located 5 minutes from downtown Vancouver.

We are seeking candidates who are interested in a full-time clinical commitment, approximately 13 shifts per month as well as those interested in part time commitment.

Vancouver is a beautiful cosmopolitan city on the Pacific Ocean. British Columbia’s mild weather makes it ideal for those that enjoy exploring nature and those that are active in sports. World class skiing is just two hours away at Whistler.

Our groups are highly collegial and, support strong research and academic educational programs. Both FRCPC and CCFP (EM) residents are trained within our regional Emergency Departments. We encourage members to pursue outside activities both medical and non-medical.
