Looking for a locum for maternity leave JUNE-DECEMBER 2021 in beautiful Prince Edward County (Picton). Our fully equipped clinic is located right beside the Picton Hospital. The roster size is ~ 1150 patients and requires 6-7 ‘half-days’ of clinic per week Mon-Fri, plus paperwork. Accuro EMR can be accessed remotely. Patient EMR charts are organized & up to date.
The position also requires some inpatient coverage at the 18-bed Picton Hospital. Inpatient billings are in addition to the base rate pay (please contact for details).
ER is totally optional; you could have our shifts if interested (approximately 6 per month) or we can keep them. There’s also an opportunity for a paid ER mentorship program which could be integrated into your locum if you want to gain for experience with rural ER.
Office space is shared with another FHO physician should you need assistance with anything, and other FHO docs in the building are always happy to help! Very collegial team! Our FHO/FHT is well funded with many services/programs: Diabetes clinic, wound care, NP home visit program, well child immunizations, mental health counsellors, dietitians, pharmacists, and several visiting specialist clinics including psychiatry, cardiology, respirology. The FHO doctors are active in clinical teaching rotations for Queen’s med students and family medicine residents (there will be no students booked during your locum period).
Please note that if you want to stay, there is the opportunity for practice takeover!
Prince Edward County is a lovely area to live, work, and raise a family, with access to world-class restaurants, over 35 wineries, artisan shops, Sandbanks provincial park, schools, and yet remains easily accessible to larger centres such as Belleville, Kingston and Toronto.
