We are looking for a part-time to fill-time physician to take a cohort of patients waiting for a family doctor in our community as we have an alarming shortage of family physicians with several thousands of unattached patients always wondering if we can take on more patients. The clinic is already carrying over 8000 active patients for comprehensive care with a team coverage approach and the most responsible family doctor. We see patients of all ages and ethnicities with various complexities. Average patients per day depends on how physicians book their patients but generally 25-35 or more patients per day
Our current panel of patients per doctor is around 800-1200 patients but the clinic as a whole has over 6000-8000 attached patients with easily another 1000 patients needing to join a practice waiting to be attached. The average patients per day will depend on how the physicians book their patients but generally it will be around 25-35 (or more) patients per day.
The chosen candidate would take on their own cohort of patients and be able to grow their practice to a full practice in less than 3-6 months by taking patients from our own patient referrals, from retiring physicians in our community, from VCH clinics and hospital discharges, as well as other unattached patients in the community.
