Role and Facility Information

The Clinic provides specialized mental health services

to clients and their families referred by Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), Royal

Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Department of National Defense (DND)

who are experiencing problems due to work-related psychological trauma and

stress (e.g. post-traumatic stress disorder and other anxiety disorders; depression;

chronic pain; addiction etc.).

The services of the Victoria BC OSI clinic are provided by an interdisciplinary team of

psychiatry, psychology, nursing, social work and external contracted specialists. The

clinic is funded by VAC and is operated by VCHA which provides services across

BC and in the Yukon.

As a psychiatrist you will be expected to provide direct patient care including

diagnostic assessments, assessments for disability, and ongoing treatment within

the context of a multidisciplinary team/program. Most care is provided virtually

at present due to COVID restrictions. Use of our electronic medical records

system and computer skills are required. You are expected to attend staff

meetings, quality improvement reviews, and comply with VCHA medical staff rules,

by-laws, and policies. Occasional outreach travel will be required within BC once

travel is deemed safe again.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to our goals of creating a great place to work and delivering exceptional care. We acknowledge and accommodate unique differences and ensure special measures are in place so that all prospective and current employees are given an opportunity to succeed.

We are committed to building a representative workforce and encourage applications reflecting diversity of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization or ancestry, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person.
