The position offers a unique blend of community practice and academic opportunities. Interested candidates have flexible opportunities to develop their practice while still having plenty of time to take advantage of the great outdoors.

The successful candidate will be required to participate in on-call Internal Medicine rotation, 1/7 or less, and teaching on the Clinical Teaching Unit (CTU).

The Department of Internal Medicine currently has 20 members, 13 of whom cover Internal Medicine.

It provides many specialty services including dialysis, endoscopic ultrasound, bronchoscopy, echocardiography (including transesophageal) with potential to develop new services. There is a fully equipped Intensive Care Unit which operates as a Closed Unit for physician staffing and involves many of the Internists. The BC Cancer Centre for the North is situated on the hospital site and includes radiation and medical oncology services. The ongoing development as a regional and teaching centre makes this an exciting time to join the medical community in Prince George.

Prince George is the centre of business, education, health and culture for northern BC, servicing an approx. rural population of 400,000 over an area of 600,000 square kilometers. Affordable housing, short commutes, a vibrant arts & culture community, and outstanding recreational opportunities make Prince George a desirable community to call home.
