Role and Facility Information

As part of the integrated system of primary care across BC, Urgent Primary Care Centres (UPCC) will provide access to primary care for patients currently without a family physician or nurse practitioner and will work to attach those individuals to primary care providers within a Primary Care Network.

You would be joining a multidisciplinary team of social workers, nurse practitioners, and mental health clinicians to address urgent community care needs pertaining to psychiatric services: urgent frail elderly care; complex disease management; and longitudinal/urgent care for the unattached patient population, in collaboration with local clinics to attach individuals to a Primary Medical Home. Hours of work are negotiable, with the flexibility to design your schedule. 8-4, 9-5, 10-6 are examples of schedules that would be considered. Bring your ideas!

We welcome NEW to practice physicians and have several supports available to ensure that your transition into the community and practice is as smooth and as enjoyable as possible.
