The hospitalist group at the Foothills Medical Centre is the largest admitting service at the site. We pride ourselves in providing excellent patient-centered care through the continuum of hospital care: seeing patients in the ER and following them onto our inpatient units and organizing post-acute care. We are responsible for ordering treatments, tests, and consulting with specialty physicians and primary care physicians where appropriate. Addiction, mental health and social issues frequently complicate the medical issues; advocacy at the patient and system level will be a key part of this role.

We are looking for clinicians who are highly receptive and seek regular feedback. We expect that clinicians who are hired be involved with various quality improvement initiatives and be actively involved with other non-clinical activities (i.e. Attending business meetings, medical education sessions, and fundraisers/socials to "committee work of their interest").

There are 2 positions available starting on July 1, 2021. There are no regularly scheduled shifts or rounding. Rather, we are seeking a permanent line composed solely of locum work. This is expected to be irregular. The purpose is to fill in for hospitalists who are away on vacation, parental leave or leave of absence. A physician filling this position would be assigned locum work consisting of shifts and rounding patients. We expect the amount of work available to make up to an anticipated 0.2 - 1.0 FTE. There is an accompanying probationary period with this position.

Time Requirement:

0.2 - 1.0 Clinical FTE is anticipated. This will include up to 1-2 night shifts per week, as well as at least 1 weekend per four weeks. Additionally some evening shifts can be expected. Successful candidates will also be expected to round daily and act as most responsible physician for a group of admitted hospital patients.
