Prince George, British Columbia
Job ID: 7998

This posting is covered by the Provincial Health Officer’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccination orders and selected applicant(s) must comply.

The Department of Internal Medicine at the University Hospital of Northern British Columbia (UHNBC) is seeking a full-time Endocrinologist to join our team. The successful candidate will be working alongside an endocrinology Internist providing full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient endocrinology services.

There is a well-established diabetes centre supported by specialist nurses, which acts as a referral centre and a regional resource for diabetes education and care in Northern BC. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to further develop and expand diabetes and endocrinology services in Northern British Columbia.

The Internal Medicine Department is currently in the final stages of organizing the inpatient care module around a strong General Internal Medicine (GIM) service supported by IM subspecialties including endocrinology. The successful candidate will be required to participate in on-call Internal Medicine rotation, 1/7 or less, and teaching on the Clinical Teaching Unit (CTU).

UHNBC serves both the immediate population of Prince George (approx. 80,000) and is a referral centre for outlying communities (total population approx. 400,000). It is the main teaching centre for medical students in the Northern Medical Program and provides teaching for University of British Columbia residents in several specialties. The Department of Internal Medicine currently has 20 members, 13 of whom cover Internal Medicine. There are sub-specialties including Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Nephrology, Infectious Disease, Respirology, Neurology, Dermatology, Rheumatology and Endocrinology. It provides many specialty services including dialysis, endoscopic ultrasound, bronchoscopy, echocardiography (including transesophageal) with potential to develop new services. There is a fully equipped Intensive Care Unit which operates as a Closed Unit for physician staffing and involves many of the Internists. The BC Cancer Centre for the North is situated on the hospital site and includes radiation and medical oncology services. The ongoing development as a regional and teaching centre makes this an exciting time to join the medical community in Prince George.

Prince George is the centre of business, education, health and culture for northern BC, servicing an approx. rural population of 400,000 over an area of 600,000 square kilometers. Affordable housing, short commutes, a vibrant arts & culture community, and outstanding recreational opportunities make Prince George a desirable community to call home. A paradise for outdoor recreation; mountain biking, hiking, kayaking in the summer, and 41 ft. of powder in the winter are just a few of the options for adventure seekers!

If rewarding professional opportunities and outstanding lifestyle are your priority, we look forward to hearing from you soon!
