General Surgery – Langley Memorial Hospital

The Fraser Health Authority is seeking a community general surgeon to join the general surgery group at Langley Memorial Hospital. The successful candidate will hold FRCSC certification in General Surgery and be eligible for a full license with the CPSBC. It is expected that the applicant will be able to undertake a broad range of community general surgery, including emergent endoscopy. Preference will be given to applicants with fellowship colorectal training.

Langley Memorial Hospital is part of the Fraser Health Authority, B.C.’s largest and fastest growing health authority. To accommodate the growing population of its community, renovation and expansion of the hospital are underway. General surgery resources include access to elective and emergency OR time, in addition to endoscopy clinics in ambulatory care. The successful applicant will participate in a 1:5 call schedule which includes a MOCAP contract providing an on-call stipend. The group is affiliated with the University of British Columbia which includes teaching opportunities for medical students and regular general surgery resident rotations, though LMH is not a primary residency training site.

Langley is located in one of the fastest growing regions in Canada. It is located a half-hour from Vancouver and in the natural beauty of the Fraser Valley. It is an ideal location to raise a family with a seemingly unlimited number of recreational activities, fine restaurants, and top schools. With its proximity to Vancouver, the mountains, oceans and lakes, and BC's Interior, this area is a great place to live.

Please forward letter of interest, a copy of your CV and three letters of reference. These must include letters from residency and fellowship program directors. If you have been in practice for at least four years, a letter from your chief of surgery will be accepted in lieu of your program supervisors’. Please submit all applications no later Thursday, February 25, 2021.
