Specialty Internal Medicine

Subspecialty Nephrology

Role and Facility Information

This is a full-time full spectrum nephrology practice including in-centre dialysis, community dialysis, PD, HH, and general nephrology clinics including multidisciplinary CKD, private office, and renal transplant clinics (all kidney transplants in BC are done in Vancouver with the patients transferred back to their home sites for chronic follow up once they are stable post-transplant). We follow several hundred post-transplant patients with excellent support from the Vancouver transplant nephrologists. We are set in a tertiary hospital with an excellent vascular access program, a full spectrum interventional radiology and cardiology program, and a CV surgery program. The hospital is a teaching hospital attached to the UBCO medical school and there are regular opportunities to work with medical students and residents. Nephrology fellows intermittently visit from Vancouver. We are looking for a general nephrologist but additional training in transplant or GN would be considered an asset as would leadership skills. We are a small group of 5 nephrologists who get along well and are easy to work with. We share a private office with a central referral system where the referrals are triaged to the first available nephrologist. Come enjoy the beautiful Okanagan climate and geography with us in Kelowna.
