Job Overview

Interesting & diverse patients, great colleagues, in a tertiary hospital…with a community hospital feel!

As a half time FTE with us you will receive a mix of days, evenings and nights.   Your primary responsibilities include admission and management of “unattached” patients as the Most Responsible Physician (MRP), as well as supportive care for some surgical and specialty medical patients.

This job requires superior clinical and communication skills, along with exceptional bedside manner and people management abilities. As Royal Columbian Hospital is a tertiary care centre, a successful candidate should be proficient in managing not only complex medical patients, but also those requiring complex care which may not be available at other sites including but not limited to neurosurgical patients, vascular patients, and those requiring interventional radiology.  Our team members must be proficient with the range of community resources available, and work collaboratively with community-based physicians to optimize discharge planning processes and patient care planning. The successful candidate should also demonstrate a history of participation in or keen interest in teaching, committee membership and participation, quality improvement initiative, and leadership training and/or experience.  A successful candidate will not only fulfill their clinical hours but also the appropriate shift mix (days, evenings, nights) and non-clinical duties.  On-site hours are generally 7 a.m. – 5 p.m., evenings are 3 pm to 9 pm, with an overnight in hospital shift from 9 p.m. to 7 am.

 

We are also always looking for relief hospitalists who would like to pick up evening, nights and weekends.
