Family Medicine Physician - PCHT

Misericordia Community Hospital


Covenant Health, in partnership with Alberta Health Services and the University of Alberta, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, Department of Family Medicine, invites applications for a Family Medicine Physician to join a dynamic PCHT team at the Misericordia Community Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta.

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 successful applicant will have an MD with existing community-based practices, will have or be eligible for certification by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and must be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a Family Physician with an existing community based family practice to work with our PCHT Teams to deliver care and consultation services to patients at the Misericordia Community Hospital. Scheduling would entail 1:8 or approximately 6 ½ weeks per year. The successful applicant should be comfortable with acute care of the elderly patient with multiple co-morbidities. An interest in participating in various hospital committees and sharing some hospital administrative duties would be a definite asset. Remuneration will be based on the Fee-for-Service (FFS) schedule.

The successful applicant will be expected to apply for a Clinical Faculty Appointment in the Department of Family Medicine, University of Alberta, which will be considered under a separate process through the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry.

This position will not support a practice readiness assessment.

Interested applicants should forward a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and names & contact information of three references to:

Dr. Kimberley Watson

Facility Chief, Department of Family Medicine

Misericordia Community Hospital


Applications will begin being reviewed on November 21, 2019; however, the competition will remain open until the position is filled.
