Family Physician: Barrington

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 Western Zone is supported by three regional facilities, as well as a number of community hospitals and health centres. Specialty services are distributed among the three regional hospitals located in Bridgewater, Kentville and Yarmouth. The Western Zone encompasses the coastal beaches and fishing communities of the South Shore, the historic French communities on the Acadian Shore, and farmers markets, breathtaking apple orchards and vineyards of the Annapolis Valley. Western Zone is home to the centrally located Kejimkujik National Park and the UNESCO World Heritage recognized Bay of Fundy. There’s something for everyone in this region, all within a 1-3 hour commute to the capital city.

We are currently seeking two family physicians for the Town of Barrington, located on the southwest part of Nova Scotia. This is an opportunity to work in a collaborative manner with other physicians in the community and to be a preceptor with residents. The physicians will be expected to provide office-based comprehensive primary care as well as inpatient coverage at Roseway Hospital in nearby Shelburne. Emergency Room coverage at Roseway Hospital would be an asset. Currently, compensation is fee-for-service.

Candidates must 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. Physicians interested in practicing in emergency are required to have ACLS, ATLS, BCLS and PALS. Having the College of Family Physicians of Canada ER certification would be considered an asset.
Support is available for a site visit and relocation.
