Located just 30 minutes east of Toronto, in Beautiful Durham Region, Lakeridge Health is looking for a Geriatrician to join our team. The successful candidate will participate in our on site multidisciplinary Geriatric Assessment and Intervention Clinic (GAIN) and will assist in performing inpatient consultations, as requested by our team of General Internists and Hospitalists. The Geriatric consultation service is also staffed by two Nurse practitioners to assist with initial inpatient assessments.
