RGPLP - Family Physician Locum needed for Hope Medical Centre

Role and Facility Information

Hope is a beautiful rural community nestled in the BC mountains, but only 2 hours from Vancouver. It is a great location for outdoor enthusiasts. We are a group of very collegial and supportive young physicians who work hard and play hard. I am looking for a locum to cover my family practice and hospital patients 2-3 days/week with the option of ER work. If you are looking for 4-5 days a week in the clinic, we can accommodate this as well. No call or weekend work required. A modern apartment within walking distance of the clinic is available free of charge. The locum is for July 31- Aug 25 or any portion of this.
