Doc-Side Medical is looking for family doctors to join their interdisciplinary team of health care professionals. There is currently a FP, Psychiatrist, Infectious Disease Specialist, and other physicians practicing Addiction Medicine. The patient population serviced by this clinic has a lot of mental illness and addiction cases, with many of the downtown eastside patients being homeless and/or on social assistance. The FP currently at the clinic focuses on Primary Care and Addiction Medicine, and there are usually two to three physicians working at a given time. Any interested FP can choose to establish their own panel of patients focused on general or addiction medicine and service the walk-in portion of the clinic as well. The office features one counselling room, one physician office space, and four to five exam rooms. There is ample staff available to support the daily flow of patient, including one office manager and MOAs. There is free gated parking available for physicians underground, and they are open to both fully and provisionally licensed physicians.
