Family Physician / Hospitalist

 

The Royal Ottawa Health Care Group (ROHCG), a fully affiliated teaching site for the University of Ottawa, is seeking Family Physicians with training or a special interest in mental health.  This academic center provides clinical service, teaching and research opportunities.

The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Center is seeking to recruit a Family Physician with exemplary credentials, and a demonstrated proficiency in working collegially and respectfully within medical and multidisciplinary teams. There is opportunity for active teaching and research, and the anticipation of participation in the administrative functioning of the hospital, either through committee work or leadership opportunities.  Specifically, The Royal provides specialized care to individuals with moderate to severe mental health disorders, complicated physical health issues, and psychosocial vulnerabilities.

The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre is composed of a 2-site facility located in Eastern Ontario and is comprised of:

  • A 190-bed state-of-the-art mental health facility and one 96-bed facility (32 recovery beds and 64 long-term care beds) located in Ottawa, and;
  • The Brockville Mental Health Centre which is a specialized mental health facility located in Brockville, has 161 inpatient beds (61 Forensic Treatment Unit, 100 Secure Treatment Unit) and 183 beds in the community (Homes for Special Care);
  • Two satellite facilities, one in Arnprior and one in Kingston for the Operational Stress Injuries (OSI) Program.  These facilities provide care for clients of Veteran Affairs Canada (VAC) and eligible members of the Canadian Forces (CF) and RCMP who have an OSI, and to their families.

Services are tailored to the unique needs of the individuals and communities we serve in Eastern Ontario and beyond.  Family Physicians work as a member of dedicated and enthusiastic interdisciplinary teams that also include psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, addiction counsellors, dietician, and recreation therapists.  We provide innovative services.  Our physicians are actively involved in teaching medical students and residents.  Program evaluation is integrated into service delivery and we have an established program of research.

Candidates should be knowledgeable and comfortable with a harm reduction, evidence based, trauma informed, motivational communication approach to care.    

The ideal candidate will have a passion for working with individuals with mental illness. The successful applicant will be encouraged to develop areas of specific interest including academic presentations and research opportunities.  Interested applicants should be excited about participating in the education of medical students and residents.  Ability to communicate effectively verbally and in writing is essential.  Bilingualism is an asset but not required.

The successful candidate will possess:

  • Current CPSO licensure and CMPA
  • Demonstrated medical/clinical leadership skills, a completed working knowledge of psychopharmacology and experience in mental health service delivery to a broad-based individual and multi-cultural patient population
  • Effective verbal and written communication skills.
  • Bilingualism preferred.
