Family Physician: Baddeck

Calling Nova Scotia home means ocean views, active living and welcoming communities. Practicing here means working with passionate colleagues, providing world class care, and helping people be healthy and stay healthy, for generations. The Nova Scotia Health Authority provides health services to Nova Scotians and some specialized services to Atlantic Canadians. We operate hospitals, health centres and collaborative community-based programs across the province.

The Eastern Zone is supported by the two regional hospitals and a host of community hospitals and health centres. Specialty services are distributed among the two regional hospitals located in Sydney and Antigonish, serving a population of over 180, 000 people with a network of over 330 physicians.

Located on the very Eastern point of Nova Scotia is the stunning scenery of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park where the road climbs along the edge of Nova Scotia and it is a regular occurrence to hike among moose in their habitat. The trail winds around some of the most breathtaking views, beaches and golf courses in the province. Enjoy the port city of Sydney and see the World’s Largest Fiddle on the friendly waterfront boardwalk. Cape Breton Island (connected by a causeway to mainland Nova Scotia) is known for a music scene that has prompted international attention for its deep Celtic and Gaelic roots. Take in one of many summertime festivals and hear the best music from across the world and right here in the province.

The community of Baddeck is looking for family physicians to join their collaborative practice of four family physicians.  Office is set up at the Victoria County Memorial Hospital, which is a 12 bed facility located in the heart of Baddeck.  Remuneration is via Alternate Payment Plan.  Deliverables include running family practice office/clinics, providing call coverage, servicing a five bed emergency room, and caring for inpatients.  Family physicians may also participate in teaching through the family medicine residency program based in Sydney, and/or with medical students through Dalhousie University.

Candidates must be certified or be eligible for certification by Canadian College of Family Physicians and must be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia.

Support is available for site visits and relocation.
