Family Physician: Weymouth

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 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.

There is an opportunity for a full-time family physician at the Weymouth Medical Centre located in the historic village of Weymouth, approximately 20 minutes from the Digby General Hospital with the prospect to be part of the collaborative family practice team at the Digby & Area Health Service Centre.
The clinic is fully equipped with furniture and computer system. The Village Commission offers one year of free rent and the Municipality funds the services of one full-time administrative staff person.

The Village itself is near St. Mary’s Bay, on the border between the Municipality of the County of Digby and the French Acadian Municipality of Clare with its rich Acadian Culture. Schools provide access to an English, French or Bilingual education. The Université Sainte-Anne is 15 minutes away which offers amenities to the public.

Candidates must be certified or be eligible for certification by College of Family Physicians of Canada and maintain certification of competency. As well, candidates must be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia.
