The Specialized Geriatric Services Program (SGS – Clinical Alternative Relationship Plan), in partnership with Covenant Health and Alberta Health Services, invites applications for a Geriatrician / Care of the Elderly Physician to join the Division of Geriatric Medicine / Care of the Elderly located 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.

This position will be located at the Misericordia Community Hospital and will consist of Orthogeriatrics, geriatric outpatient clinic, inpatient consults and Emergency Department duties. The position will also provide equitable share of on call coverage for the MCH Geriatrics service. Participation in Departmental Committees is required.

This position will not support a practice readiness assessment.

This individual will take part in the teaching of undergraduate and post-graduate learners; therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to apply for a Clinical Faculty Appointment, which will be considered under a separate process through the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, University of Alberta.
