Job Description

Primary Care Family Practice Physician

 Parental Leave Coverage – 7 months (Quinte West Location)

Commencing ~ May 2024


The Organization

BQWCHC opened in 2010 and is one of 75 community health centres in Ontario. We boast a range of services and initiatives designed to respond to the health needs of our clients and local community. With a health equity focus, we emphasize services to populations who face barriers to accessing health services.


The Community

Located on the 401 and rail line between Toronto and Ottawa, the Belleville & Quinte West area offers the best of both worlds – access to urban communities and services with the affordability and lifestyle benefits of a smaller community.

Outstanding services and 4-season recreation!


The Opportunity

As part of an inter-disciplinary team BQWCHC offers opportunities for physicians who are seeking a challenging, rewarding position providing comprehensive primary care services to clients at all ages and stages of the life cycle with an emphasis on those who are high risk and/or are experiencing barriers to accessing services. Our health equity focus brings together population health and the social determinants of health within an interdisciplinary primary health care model.


BQWCHC offers a salaried model for compensation. Distinct from a fee-for-service or capitation model, a salaried model mitigates the challenges of dealing with a shrinking schedule of benefits, managing overhead costs and salaries. Benefits include bi-weekly pay (with deductions made at the source). As a salaried model, physicians are not required to do billing, manage staff or maintain responsibility for overhead.

Physicians work as members of a team that includes nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, pharmacist, dentist, dietician, Certified Diabetes Educator/COPD nurse, housing worker, community resource worker and a host of other programs, groups and services to clients of BQWCHC and community members.
