Alberta Health Services is inviting applications from Family Physicians to join the Hospitalist Care Team at the Westview Health Centre.

Successful Candidates will have a functional knowledge of resources and challenges in Alberta’s primary health care system. This knowledge will be supported by the candidate having completed a two year Family Medicine Residency and by ongoing community Family Medicine services.

The successful candidate will join the Hospitalist Care Team at the Westview Health Centre and will be expected to provide service looking after 15 to 20 Acute care inpatients for 6 shifts (or more) per year. The successful recruit will be available for return for admissions from 8am to 7pm for each seven day shift. The successful recruit is also expected to be on call via the 24 hour phone while on shift. Shifts run Friday to Friday.

We are particularly interested in candidates who have superior interpersonal skills with a demonstrated commitment to teamwork and peer relationships. The successful candidate should be committed to fulfilling clinical and non-clinical duties as a representative of Family Medicine. Preference will be given to physicians currently practicing in the community.

The Westview Health Centre which is located in Stony Plain, 30 kilometers west of Edmonton, has 23+4 acute care inpatient beds, 40 continuing care beds and 6 hospice beds. The Westview Health Centre also has 24-hour emergency services, diagnostic imaging, lab services, day surgery, wound care, public health, environmental health, community care, rehabilitation services, preventative dental health and mental health. The Family Medicine Health Care Team (HCT) also maintains contact with community practitioners carefully protecting continuity between acute care and community care.

The successful candidate must be eligible for certification with the College of Family Physicians of Canada and for medical licensure in the province of Alberta. Successful applicants will be expected to apply for a Clinical Academic appointment with the Faculty of Medicine and Dentristry, Department of Family Medicine.

Remuneration is on a fee-for-service basis and some additional support via the Acute Care Coverage stipend.
