General Internist

Opportunity to experience both a fulfilling professional life and the ideal lifestyle in a full-time general internal medicine practice in beautiful Williams Lake, BC. CMH is currently expanding the IM team and further developing the service with a goal of growing a more critical service for the community. Enjoy working with a supportive medical community, a thriving surgical team and a busy ER (~ 22,000 visits/yr). The ideal candidate will be eager to collaborate in building our general internal medicine program and would be confident with inpatients, emergency room consults, and ICU management/ procedures such as stress testing. Our ICU offers 3-4 beds and while not as intensive as some with no ventilation services, Williams Lake is a hub for the area and as such, experiences a broad variety of cases.  Subspecialty interests such as respirology would be welcomed. Local on-call responsibilities are quite flexible and will be determined with incoming physician. In addition, this position offers a teaching component with locally placed UBC students and residents.

Cariboo Memorial Hospital is a 31-bed hospital offering emergency, an intensive care unit, operating rooms, medical-surgical and obstetrical units, and ambulatory care services. Other services at the hospital include stress testing, lab and diagnostic imaging (including echo and CT scanning), out-patient hemodialysis and a five-bed psychiatric crisis stabilization unit.
