Job Description

Look no further for a place to practice medicine! Snowy Owl Medical Clinic is located just far enough from Calgary to have a small town experience with friendly schools and bright yellow fields of canola but close enough to Calgary to easily participate in big-city attractions. Our clinic was established only last year and we are striving to be a supportive multi-physician practice in the growing town of Carstairs, only 30 minutes north of Calgary.

We are a highly supportive clinic and you won’t be disappointed. We accommodate both full-time and part-time physicians. We strive to implement practices that provide quality care for patients including same-day access, friendly staff, and a welcoming facility.

We have 8 full-size exam rooms with computers in each, one treatment room, and a comfortable consult room. We stay current with technology advancements and have an online presence with social media and an updated website.

Physicians have the opportunity to work at the nearby Didsbury Hospital with ER shifts, long-term care, and hospital service.

Come have a look and join our exciting team. You won’t find a better fit anywhere in Alberta.
