Subspecialty General Internal Medicine

Role and Facility Information

The University Hospital of Northern British Columbia (UHNBC) is seeking four suitably qualified General Internal Medicine (GIM) specialists to join our department of internal medicine. With the recent redesign of its service delivery model, the department of medicine is establishing a division of General Internal Medicine, with four new positions including the opportunity to serve as Division Lead (0.2 FTE). The department of internal medicine at UHNBC currently has over 20 members including subspecialty divisions which all participate (with the exception of ICU and neurology) in shared internal medicine call and the inpatient Clinical Teaching Unit (CTU). The ICU operates as a closed service and its call is provided by ICU fellowship trained physicians on a separate rota.

The responsibilities of each GIM physician will include:

- Rotate as most responsible physician on the CTU and GIM inpatient services (16 weeks per year)

- Rotate on the inpatient internal medicine consult service (1 in 4 weeks, approx. 12 weeks per year)

- Participate in rostered hospital based GIM clinics including a rapid access clinic, peri-operative assessment clinic and other general medicine outpatient clinics (12 to 15 weeks per year)

- Participate in rostered clinical teaching with the opportunity for a UBC clinical faculty appointment

- Participate in the general medicine call schedule (approx. 1:7 )

GIM division members will have access to the following:

- hospital based shared clinic space with no overhead fees, including EMR access and clerical support

- cardiac lab with exercise stress testing, MIBI stress testing and Holter Monitor Interpretation

- participation in the ECG interpretation rota for the hospital

- support on CTU with housestaff including a GP clinical associate, senior resident, clinical pharmacist, family practice residents and medical students.

- support on the GIM inpatient unit with two GP clinical associates and a clinical pharmacist

- division operational administrative support.

The GIM Division Lead will be a paid administrative role (0.2 FTE) for one of the four members of the division.
