locum Physician - Hospital Medicine at Timmins and District Hospital
Timmins, Ontario
Job ID: 8309

The Hospitalist Program at the Timmins and District Hospital is seeking locums to fill various schedule gaps throughout the balance of 2023.

The Timmins and District Hospital is a 153-bed district hospital serving a local population of 41,000 and a catchment area of 110,000. Timmins is located in Northeastern Ontario, and is a fully accredited referral and teaching hospital and offers a full range of Medical, Surgical, Critical Care, Maternal/Child, Long Term Care, and Mental Health Services.

Details of the Hospitalist work is as follows:

• Hospitalists are on-call for their patients 7 consecutive days starting on a Friday at 0800 hours.

• Hospitalists are on-call for new admissions 1/3 of the week according to the schedule. Admissions typically come from the ER or the ICU.

• Call always starts at 08:00hrs and ends the next day at 08:00 hrs. Your patients are primarily Medical Patients. Emergency physicians do admit orders, and will also hold calls from 23:00 hrs until the next am at 07:00 hrs before calling. Admissions are divided equally among the three or four hospitalists, usually when you meet in the am. 

• Bullet rounds are held twice a week and typically last 20 minutes to review patients with the nurses and allied health providers. They typically start at 1:00 pm. The first day starts at 8:00 am with transfer rounds from the departing hospitalist (or the Thursday evening prior over the phone). This is a verbal transfer of MRP duties to you. On the Friday following your last day (or Thursday evening), you are expected to provide the next hospitalist with a verbal transfer of your patients’ care.

• You have access to consultants in Medicine, General Surgery, ENT, Psychiatry, Orthopedics, Anesthesia, GI, Nephrology and have an excellent DI Dept with state of the art CT and MRI.

• Although workload can vary, hospitalists usually carry 16-20 patients each and end up billing anywhere from 30-40 patients/week. Total remuneration ranges from $14,000-$15,000 on a 3 Hospitalist week or $10,000-$12,000 on a 4 Hospitalist week.

• We currently use Meditech and your progress notes need to be entered in the EMR. If you prefer to dictate vs type your note, there are priority codes which will ensure your note is present the following day. 

• Your traveling expenses of airfare and/or mileage, local car rental and accommodations will be covered. 

  • Approval based on successful credentialing for medical staff privileges.  Physicians require an independent practice license with CPSO and active OHIP billing number. Family Physicians/Internists with Hospitalist experience are preferred.
