Covenant Health, in partnership with Alberta Health Services and the University of Alberta, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, Department of Pediatrics, invites applications for a General Pediatrician to be based primarily at the Grey Nuns 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 candidate would join a group of 7 private practice pediatricians with admitting privileges to the Grey Nuns Community Hospital. The applicant would engage in a full range of community pediatrics with duties including:

  • Being on the call roster for the GNCH with newborn admitting privileges and consultation to NICU for neonates transitioning to home care. The on call physician is expected to round on all non-assigned newborns the morning following being on call (averaging 12-20 newborns) and each day until discharge. On call duties would also include being available for consultations to GNCH ER and pediatric service calls while on call. The GNCH call group includes 8 general pediatricians. On call would be three to four days per month.
  • Other teaching activities would include in-office teaching of students and residents and teaching of trainees on the pediatric service at the GNCH. Office teaching would be compensated by the EPSC as per established rates.
  • Private office clinical services 3 days per week at the Pediatric Clinic at 9803 – 34 Ave as organized with your private practice clinic colleagues (Dr. Bowman, Dr. Sperka, and Dr. Berry).

The successful candidate must be eligible for registration with the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta and must be appointed to the Edmonton Zone Medical Staff. The successful candidate will be eligible to be certified by the RCPS of Canada in the specialty of pediatrics. An interest in community pediatrics or subspecialty training in areas aligned with community pediatrics activities is preferred.

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

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

Interested applicants should apply online through the posting, with a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and names & contact information of three references to:

Dr. Michael Bowman
