RGPLP - General Practitioner needed for Tonquin Medical Clinic

Role and Facility Information

Hi fellow GPs, looking to host you in my beautiful waterfront home in Tofino between August 26th and Sept 10th, 2023. Soft top surfboards, fireplace and firewood provided. My schedule leaves plenty of time to enjoy the west coast. 2 scheduled clinic days and 1 scheduled ER day per week. Inpatient care and additional ER shifts are possibly part of this - our ER schedule is pending, but it would be no more than two additional ER shift for the duration of the locum. Thanks for considering.
