Specialty Family Practitioner/General Practitioner

Subspecialty Emergency

Role and Facility Information

Come join the collegial Emergency team in Williams Lake! In this rural community, you can still practice emergency medicine without CCFP-EM. We see a broad range of interesting cases involving numerous procedures and we are well supported by specialists in Internal Medicine, Ob/Gyn, General Surgery, Pediatrics and Psychiatry. Emergency experience would be an asset but we have the capacity to mentor new Canadian graduates or international graduates.

The Cariboo Memorial Hospital serves a population of approximately 16,000, and we see ~22,000 ER visits/year. Our 24/7 Emergency Room is staffed with six full-time emergency physicians. GPs who want to also have community work will be considered but preference is for full time GP ER interest. Candidates are free to choose whether or not to later challenge the CCFP EM exam. You would have 11-12 shifts/month (hours vary from 8-12 hours) with an option to pick up extra shifts as they become available. We schedule overlap during particularly busy times. The successful applicant can expect a highly collaborative and interactive medical setting as well as involvement in teaching medical students.

Williams Lake has all amenities, including a local college, an airport, and a variety of fitness and outdoor opportunities. You can’t beat the lifestyle as a family physician whether in your practice or for your family.

Williams Lake

Set in the heart of the Frontier, amid lakes and rolling ranch land, Williams Lake has been the focal point of the Cariboo and Chilcotin regions since the turn of the century. Here you will find a relaxed friendly atmosphere and ample opportunity for fishing, hiking and mountain biking. Explore pristine forests, lakes and rivers in the temperate summer, and experience snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Williams Lake has retained its magical western frontier character while becoming the modern commercial centre and transportation hub of the Cariboo. Hometown hospitality mixed with high-quality life style make this an ideal place to raise a family, start a business or retire.
