full time Physician - Family Practice at Clinic
Barriere, British Columbia
Job ID: 5179

Family/General Practitioner

Come and join us in Barriere and experience the difference you have been searching for, both personally and professionally. Local physician with young family wanting to work part time creating a lovely .5 position with opportunity to pick up additional work. Locums welcome during recruitment period!

Serving the community of about 2600 residents, the health centre offers emergency and ambulatory care as well as diagnostic and laboratory services. The health centre shares its space with reception, public health, home and community care, lab & xray, as well as the physician’s office and staff. Open Monday to Friday daytime hours, the emergency department sees approximately 1500 visits annually in its 4 stretcher bays providing emergency services, urgent treatments, and care for patients with booked procedures. Patients requiring a higher level of care are stabilized and transferred to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. There are no overnight holds or inpatient beds.

Most of the staff in Barriere live in the local community. It is clearly demonstrated in their day to day work that they care deeply about the services they provide back to the community through their work in the health center. Knowledgeable, friendly, and supportive is the atmosphere. Here is your opportunity to experience it for yourself!

The clinic and private physician’s office offers 2 exam rooms, very supportive MOAs and a low overhead model. The pace can be leisurely or hectic with ED patients being seen between regular office bookings. Whether you are interested in full time, part time or locum opportunities, if you are a physician who is flexible and enjoys working closely with an integrated team in a rural environment, this could be a great fit for you!

Barriere is a place where you can truly appreciate a slower paced lifestyle and the strong sense of community that rural living offers. Enjoy a relaxing home town environment to raise your family, an affordable and safe community and abundance of recreation at your doorstep. Nestled in the North Thompson Valley and reminiscent of Swiss alpine scenery, the town of Barriere hosts one of the most exhilarating outdoor activities – whitewater rafting. For more easygoing paddling, the North Thompson River is perfect, as the current gently pulls paddlers downstream all the way to Kamloops; although, you will need several days to cover the entire distance! Or take pleasure in the close proximity to lakes for swimming and fishing, as well as exciting ski hills nearby for snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

Apply today to live work and play where others only vacation! It’s better here!

Candidates with a BC or Canada student loan may be eligible for BC or Canada loan forgiveness programs.
