Hospital NameDidsbury District Health ServicesRead more about this hospital
Family practice in a town of 5,000 people, approximately 45 minutes north of Calgary. Includes the opportunity for inpatient coverage, Lodge/Assisted Living coverage, and potentially ER work depending on current staffing needs. Current ER schedule consists of 10-hour day shifts and 14-hour night shifts.
In addition to clinic-based practice, this position also offers an opportunity for hospital work. Local physicians provide weekday inpatient coverage for their own patients, and also any unattached patients admitted during their ER shifts. Weekend inpatient coverage is provided by the ER on-call physician. The ER roster is currently full, but should a spot become available, physicians practicing in the community would be eligible to apply. In the meantime, there would be occasional opportunities to provide ER coverage for vacations or other absences on the part of the regularly scheduled physicians. The current ER call schedule consists of 10-hour day shifts and 14-hour night shifts, with an average of one shift per physician per week.
We also have a long-term-care unit at the hospital site, in addition to two Assisted Living facilities in Didsbury. Applicants would not be obligated to provide coverage at these facilities, but would have the opportunity to do so.
Our clinic belongs to the Highland PCN, which provides us with an excellent multi-disciplinary team, among other valuable services. These include practitioners embedded in the clinic on a rotating basis, in addition to centralized services at the Didsbury hospital and at the PCN office in Airdrie.
We are not eligible for an AHS sponsorship position, so candidates must already possess a valid CPSA practice permit for Alberta.
Overhead terms to be discussed directly with qualified applicants. We look forward to hearing from you!
