Covenant Health, in partnership with Alberta Health Services, invites applications for an Emergency Medicine Specialist LOCUM opportunity (approximately 8 shifts per month) at the Misericordia Community Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta from July 1, 2020 to July 1, 2021. This is an outstanding practice opportunity to work on a committed and creative team serving local and outlying communities in Alberta’s Edmonton Zone.

Covenant is Canada’s largest Catholic provider of health care, with 26 Catholic facilities in 15 communities across Alberta. As a major provider in Alberta’s integrated health system, the Covenant family (Covenant Health, Covenant Care, and Covenant Living) works with Alberta Health Services and community partners to positively influence the health of Albertans through a broad range of programs and services in our hospitals, health centres and continuing care centres.

The candidate will have exceptional communication skills and a passion for quality and patient safety. They will be considered a strong clinician by their peers. The successful applicant will have, or be eligible for, certification in Emergency Medicine with the Royal College of Physicians of Canada or the College of Family Physicians Canada (FRCPC or CCFP-EM) and be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta. ACLS, PALS, and ATLS competency are required. Residents must be eligible to write the appropriate exam at the next sitting.

In collaboration with their colleagues, the successful candidate will deliver care and consultation services to emergency patients and participate in the program’s rotating shift schedule.

Remuneration will be based on the Fee-for-Service (FFS) schedule.
