A healthy working lifestyle. . .
Working along side some of the most supportive, collegial, and fun doctors on the planet, Castlegar is a place where you can do more than just exist, it’s a place where you can thrive. We are family and play orientated, with no 24 hour call, and generally only three 8AM-8PM emergency shifts per month, however, if you want more, it exists here as well.
Our Regional Hospital
With the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital only 30 minutes away you have the opportunity to expand the practice into OB, Long Term Care, or hospitalist work, but it is not required.
Working in a diverse rural practice with access to specialists including; renal, plastics, ortho, internal medicine, and general surgery only 30 minutes away, you are the specialist who ensures everyone is working together.
Realizing doctors need care too, several CME opportunities exist locally and are organized, and sometimes funded, by our strong Division of Family Practice. This, together with an easy, appreciative patient population and endless opportunities for an outdoor lifestyle, are the reasons doctors love it here.
