Approximately Jan 4 - Feb 26, 2021 (these dates can be flexible to some degree and would also accept partial coverage by multiple locums if unable to find a long term locum).
Flexible long term locum in a shared full service rural practice in Smithers. Supportive colleagues (great for new grads) in a wonderful mountain town (lots of summer and winter outdoor activities).
Physician is able to work with you to come up with whatever best suits your needs. You could work part time (2 office days per day) or full time (office plus ER). Hosting physician currently works 2 office days per week plus 1-2 ER shifts per week, but ER is optional (it is a well supported rural ER with a CT scanner and awesome GPA backup 24/7).
The practice is shared so there will always be someone to ask questions of. The charts are very well maintained and practice has less than 10 patients on chronic opioids. Our office staff are great. We cover our inpatients during the week and the whole office's inpatients 1 in 5 weekends (covering for 5 practices).
There is no night call! The overnight ER docs cover this for us. Practice has 5 patients in long term care (not onerous). Practice sees maternity up to 20wks but if you have an interest in obstetrics you could continue tosee these patients to delivery during hosting physician's absence. Physician sees on average 20 patients per day. In Smithers, there is a 22% rural retention premium on all billings.
Physician is somewhat flexible in terms of dates (please contact if you're interested but the dates aren't quite right).
