full time Physician - Family Practice at Clinic
Summerland, British Columbia
Job ID: 4663

Family Physician

Imagine having Summerland on your address line. It is as it seems – a rewarding place to work, recreate, and enjoy all that life has to offer.

Work – In a collegial and flexible group clinic that is fully electronic (Med Access EMR), has extremely capable and supportive staff, and appreciative patients. You can choose to work part-time or full time in the clinic. There are opportunities to practice Obstetrics, Emergency, Addictions Medicine at an innovative MHSU clinic, or acute in-hospital medicine. There is opportunity to be involved in improving community primary care systems through a very active Division of Family Practice. Teaching and mentoring opportunities are available through our UBC Okanagan South Family Practice Residency program. In fact, two of our clinicians are integrally involved with the Residency program and would be happy to mentor and support you in any way necessary as you settle into a new community of practice.

The Family Physicians in Summerland/Penticton work very well together and our Specialists are excellent. Our clinic shares hospital rounds at Penticton Regional Hospital (approximately 1 day/week and every 6th weekend) and Summerland has an after-hours community clinic (2.5 hours every second week). We care for our patients in two residential care facilities. Evening and weekend hospital call receives enhanced remuneration but is completely optional. We enjoy good locum support but also help each other out so that we all have ample time to recreate.

Recreate – and live in the heart of sunny Okanagan wine country where pristine lakes and mountains provide endless opportunity to explore and enjoy water sports, road cycling, mountain biking, one of the top rated climbing destinations, three world class ski hills and two world class cross-country ski areas 45-90 minutes away. Alternatively, sit and relax at your home, a restaurant or winery and sip on a local wine while enjoying a delectable locally produced meal. Culture and opportunities for creativity abound – music, markets, painting, pottery, theatre, dancing. For those wanting more, Kelowna – a thriving metropolis playground – is 45 minutes’ drive away and Vancouver is 3.5 hour’s drive away. For those with children, Summerland offers highly reputable and high achieving schools to which your children can bicycle or walk.

Enjoy – what we have been fortunate to be able to enjoy – a well remunerated, satisfying career with limitless recreational opportunities. Come and join us as we would love to share this great life with you.
