Full time

Zone 2-Northern (Colchester-East Hants, Cumberland, Pictou)

Family Physician
Closing Date

Elmsdale Medical Centre has an immediate opening for a full-time physician wanting to start up or relocate their current practice.

The Elmsdale Medical Centre is a Collaborative Practice wherein physicians and supporting licensed healthcare professionals collaborate on general healthcare outcome targets, meet to discuss patient care and cover each other’s patients while a physician is not scheduled in the clinic. The Clinic also works to provide locum coverage to support vacation times. We welcome and encourage physicians who choose to provide health care services at local hospitals, nursing homes etc. Candidates must be eligible to be licensed by CPSNS and Credentialed with the Nova Scotia Health Authority.

The Ravines Medical Group takes care of the business of medicine for you such as billings, administrative staffing, management of referrals, management of vaccines, ordering of supplies. Your exam rooms and office space is fully equipped including EMR and computer hardware. Attractive overhead model with no minimum monthly amount and scaling incentives based on yearly billing thresholds.

The incoming physician will have the choice of either the fee-for-service or alternative payment plan models as the Ravines Medical Group accommodates both. Although the Elmsdale Clinic is considered rural, the clinic is only located 20-30 minutes outside the city of Halifax. 

In collaboration with the existing team of eight physicians and a family practice nurse the incoming physician will be a part of a collaborative clinic serving the patients of the Elmsdale Medical Centre.  We pride ourselves on providing the support for our physicians to provide medical services outside of the clinic to diversify and complement their family practice.

This position can be filled by two physicians seeking to share a practice should it be desirable. Days of the week, hours and number of patients scheduled per shift are tailored to the physician’s preference. The Elmsdale Medical Centre offers after hour care coverage seven days per week.
