Highlands Medical Clinic / Buchanan Memorial Hospital

Locum, full-time or part-time opportunities available in Neils Harbour, a small fishing village surrounded by ocean, forest, and mountains, nestled in Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

We’re a rural hospital, providing clinic, ER, and hospitalist care in our 10-bed facility, with x-ray, basic lab, POC ultrasound, and a fantastic group of nurses and support staff. FFS, APP contract, or locum program, with a generous on-call stipend.

At this time, we’re particularly looking for summer locums – flexible dates, and housing provided.

Our physician group is two women (in their first five years of practice) and two men (nearing the end of their careers), looking to welcome new faces to our practice and community. It’s a great spot for those newly out of residency, for someone looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, or simply wanting to explore this beautiful corner of the world.

In the summer, explore our myriad of hiking trails, sandy beaches, rocky cliffs and fresh seafood, along the world-famous Cabot Trail. Winters offer cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and the newly re-opened Ski Cape Smokey ski hill. In autumn, the mountains come alive with fall colours and the sound of fiddles and ceilidhs.
