Family Physician

Consider all that a family practice in the Sea to Sky corridor has to offer, both for work and play!

With gorgeous clinics, wonderful colleagues, and access to some of the world’s most stunning recreational opportunities, the communities of Squamish and Whistler are incredible places to launch your career in Family Medicine.

Squamish has three full-service Family Practices and an additional walk-in clinic that serve a young and growing community of nearly 30,000 residents. Practices are kept busy by local weekend warriors and multi-season tourism.  Additionally, Squamish medical professionals may provide emergency treatment at Squamish General Hospital, maternity services, and assistance to regional long-term and palliative care patients. Family Physicians enjoy a diversity of practice, combining clinic, and hospital work in a way that provides patients with significant continuity of care which ensures practitioners have the support of a strong, collegial medical community.

The famous mountain town of Whistler is home to two primary care clinics and the Whistler Health Care Centre, which provides urgent treatment and diagnostic services. A year-round resort destination, Whistler’s 14,000 permanent residents and many seasonal workers keep the ski runs and bike trails operating, and local Family Physicians busy. Enjoy all that Whistler has to offer, including a vibrant nightlife, multi-season outdoor activities, and a growing fine-arts environment!

Family physicians practicing in BC have the opportunity to tailor a practice to their interests and lifestyle. Both Squamish and Whistler offer family doctors the chance to provide a wide range of longitudinal primary care services while having easy access to a variety of outstanding recreational options.           

The new BC Longitudinal Family Physician payment model offers one of the best compensation packages for Family Physicians in the country, and qualifying recent grads are eligible for a generous contract, including student loan forgiveness.
