Job Description
This job can be done from anywhere as we provide exclusively virtual care, but the physician needs to be within Canadian borders, hold valid medical liability insurance and be registered with the College of Physicians of Alberta. We comply with the CPSA standard for virtual care by having all patients referred by their local family doctor, such that they can access in-person care if required.

Seeking medical doctors with a special interest and/or training in mental health.

Whittaker Wellness is looking for fellow family physicians to join our wonderful team of CPSA licensed medical doctors to provide therapy and counselling to any patient in Alberta with valid AB healthcare coverage.

Primary Duties:

Providing counselling, supportive and cognitive behavioural therapy to patients on a virtual platform or telephonically. As family doctors, we can prescribe medications if deemed necessary, but these scripts would be limited to psychiatric medications.

Benefits:

  • No investigations or lab work need to be ordered
  • Low overhead rate of 18% for the first year, dropping to 15% after 1 year with us.
  • Minimal paperwork- write notes during sessions, close the chart at the end of the hour and you are done!
  • No results to check, scripts to refill (unless you prescribe), or forms to complete.

Job Requirements:

  • Training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)- easy to access, and very inexpensive (suggested sources supplied on request), or any other psychotherapy modality such as DBT, EMDR, MDPAC medical psychotherapy training, internal family systems, emotionally focused therapy are examples.
