Job Description

ValleyCare Medical’s group of 9 collegial physicians share a similar work ethic and enjoy the right balance between work and personal life. There is an opportunity to take over the established part-time practice of a retiring physician, expanding to full-time if you choose. No hospital required, and special interests welcome. There is a local full service hospital with excellent specialist coverage. The practice has an LPN and a full complement of office support staff.  In addition to the busy family practice we also run one of the two walk-in clinics in the area.

Each doctor is able to schedule their appointments as they choose, and do in-person as well as phone visits.  Our medical records and billing staff are able to help with some of the administrative tasks in order that doctors have more time to provide direct patient care. We use Profile, from Intrahealth, as our EMR and continue to increase utilization of features to enhance efficiency and manage patient panels.

This position is remunerated by fee-for-service.


May be eligible for additional remuneration in accordance with the Rural Subsidiary Agreement (RSA) including:

Recruitment Incentive - $10,000; Fee Premium - 6.93%; Annual Flat Fee - $7,977.42; Rural CME starting at $2,200/annum in year 3 & 4 in community, increasing to a maximum of $4,400/annum after 4 years.


Cost sharing, costs based on room usage and are usually between 25-35% of billings depending how you use the rooms.


Licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC

Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) desired
