Role and Facility Information

The Department of Internal Medicine at the University Hospital of Northern British Columbia is seeking a General Neurologist to join our team. We currently have two full time clinical Neurologists.

In addition to clinical practice (hospital inpatient consults, on-call, and ambulatory care), there are excellent opportunities to become involved in teaching, as we are closely affiliated with the Northern Medical Program (University of British Columbia), based in Prince George.

We have state of the art Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging facilities. As well, we have an excellent and well-established neuroelectrophysiology lab with experienced technicians who work closely with our two neurologists who currently provide these services, a sub-specialty Memory Clinic, and sub-specialty Multiple Sclerosis Clinic. There will be opportunities to develop stroke and epilepsy programs.

The successful applicant will be expected to participate in an on-call schedule and provide hospital consults in addition to ambulatory care.

It is the main teaching centre for medical students in the Northern Medical Program and provides teaching for University of British Columbia residents in several specialties. 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.
