Job Requirements

The majority of your time will be spent at Stanton in clinic or in the operating room for emergencies or procedures. You will have a 1:4 on call (average over the year, often done in blocks) schedule to be shared with the other permanent Otolaryngologist or a visiting locum physician. It is not an essential service, so some days the call service is not covered by anyone. Stanton has a compliment of 2 audiologists and a one full-time hearing aid practitioner, one of which will accompany you on your travel clinics.
The travel clinics are an important part of the practice and are typically 2-5 days in length depending on the location. These clinics will bring you throughout the NWT to experience the indigenous cultures of Dene, Inuit, and Metis, as well as the stunning boreal forest, tundra, and the Mackenzie Delta. You will reach all the way to the fabled Northwest Passage to see the communities of the Arctic in Nunavut. The adventurer in you will appreciate the rural and remote regions you will travel to, as well as the people you will meet in these culturally rich areas of Canada.
