Job Description

The Northern Zone of the Nova Scotia Health Authority is seeking family practitioners! The Northern Zone is supported by three regional facilities, as well as a number of community hospitals and health centres. Specialty services are distributed among the three regional hospitals located in Truro, New Glasgow and Amherst.
The Northern Zone is located in the hub of Nova Scotia where all roads meet in the middle of the province. This is the part of the province where people come to play on the shores of the Northumberland Strait that offer the best beachcombing and warmest swimming in the Province. This area is also home to a large fresh seafood industry and rolling wine country, and the quaint town of Tatamagouche. Truro is home to industry and a modern town located on the famous Bay of Fundy and a short drive to the Five Islands Provincial Park with beautiful shores of red clay and fossil finds.The zone is also home to Ski Wentworth, one of the ski resorts in the province and Fox Harb’r the legendary golf course enjoyed by celebrities from all over. Quick access to New Brunswick and PEI make this location a small town charm with regional access to the larger centres of Halifax and Moncton in less than 2 hours.
We have family physician collaborative practice opportunities to join the North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC), All Saints Springhill CEC and the South Cumberland CEC. These practice opportunities are located in Pugwash, Springhill and Parsborro, NS. The full time Primary Health Care/ED Collaborating Physician income is based on the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness Family Practice-Nurse Practitioner collaborative practice contract. These are turn-key practices supported by an EMR.
These communities offer a small town atmosphere in a rural setting, and would be an appealing practice opportunity for nature enthusiasts seeking a rewarding work/life balance! The Northern Zone also has APP and FFS Family Medicine practice opportunities in Pictou, New Glasgow, and Truro.
Nova Scotia Health Authority incentives include the Site Visit and Relocation Programs. NS Department of Health & Wellness has a Tuition Relief and Bursary Program incentive, as well as a Debt Assistance Program. Benefits are available through Doctors NS.
