Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority

Located in central Canada, slightly north-east of the city of Winnipeg, and in the heart of Manitoba’s scenic lake country, the Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority (IERHA) covers an area of 61,000 km2. One of the largest health regions in the Province of Manitoba, IERHA extends east to the Ontario border, north to the 53rd parallel, west to the eastern shores of Lake Manitoba, and south to just past Winnipeg. The Region serves a population of approximately 135,000 residents, including 17 First Nations and 24 Metis communities representing 27% of the area’s population. The population grows extensively in the summer months with cottagers, campers and others who come to enjoy this ‘cottage country’ and its abundance of lakes, beaches, forests and other natural areas.

Job Duties (same for each of the two positions):
The physician will perform all duties associated with a busy family practice, including coordinating primary patient care, examining and advising patients, ordering diagnostic procedures, prescribing and administering medications and treatments, providing inpatient and outpatient care, and Personal Care Home services.

As a contract practitioner, the Family Physician will collaborate with a multi-disciplinary team in providing health care services to the Region, including inpatient care, clinic services, and care in personal care homes in the surrounding communities. The Physician will maintain full-time Clinic hours and be available on site not less than four days per week.

In keeping with the philosophy of care that has been established within IERHA, the Physician will promote and expand primary health care with a focus on the delivery of a continuum of comprehensive and coordinated services in response to the needs of the community. As such, the Physician is a key member of the networks and teams of health professionals responsible for providing an integrated system of health services accessible on a 24/7 basis, complete with admitting privileges and on-call coverage shared on a rotational basis in the ER coverage rotation.

The Physician also has the opportunity to play large leadership roles, to engage in continuing medical education activities and mandatory training; to participate in special projects; to provide clinical advice in such areas as standards of practice and care, and; to lead the education, supervision and evaluation of medical students and other health care professionals.

The Candidates (skills/education requirements):

IERHA is deeply patient-centered, in an environment of mutual respect, courtesy, collegiality and strong community support and engagement. As a result, the successful candidates are confident physician leaders with strong clinical and acute care skills, who value practicing in a team-based environment, and who are interested in contributing to the creation of new delivery models.

The Physician will be required to work independently and will be solely responsible for the full range of patient care in the Emergency Department and on the wards during on-call shifts or in the absence of other on-site providers. As such, relevant and sufficient emergency and minor surgery experience is required.

The successful candidates must hold a medical degree, and hold, or be eligible for, immediate certification with the Medical Council of Canada. They must also be members of, or be eligible for immediate membership in, the College of Family Physicians of Canada and hold, or be eligible for, CCFP certification. As well, the successful candidates must hold, or be eligible for, immediate registration and licensure with the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Manitoba and satisfy the appropriate requirements for Medical Privileges with the IERHA. They must also have, or obtain, CMPA or equivalent coverage.

Qualified candidates who currently have a Return of Service in another community or with another Regional Health Authority, will be considered ineligible.

Compensation:
This position will be compensated on a IC Contract basis as Per the Doctors Manitoba Physician Agreement. The Physician will be self-employed and no employee benefits will be provided by the IERHA.

A competitive rate of overhead will be charged by the IERHA.
