Locum opportunity in Charlottetown, PEI October 2018 - June 2019. 

Flexible clinical locum that could also include inpatient care for general medical patients, healthy newborns, and paediatric patients. Inpatient care would include on call services which is remunerated quite well. The clinic includes a medical secretary, LPN, and collaborative nurse practitioner who has been with the practice for 5 years and knows the patients quite well.

The clinic is located in an office space shared with 7 other fantastic family physicians who are very supportive. There is also an option to provide clinic in a First Nations clinic on reserve approximately 20 minutes away part-time.

Remuneration is typically by the hour. There is no overhead.  There are options for payment relief of college and medical society dues. There is an additional locum daily stipend to help with housing costs.
