Remuneration would be fee for service with a competitive overhead rate and no on call requirements.
Hinton is a town of about 10,000 people but serves as a hub for a larger catchment area of surrounding communities to serve as a referral base. There is a stable and collegial group of 15 local family physicians to support this transition to a new community. We are located just outside Jasper National Park and have numerous outdoor recreational activities including a well-maintained Nordic centre in winter and a mountain bike park in summer. There are also active arts and theatre programs.
