Dawson City, Yukon: Vibrant northern town seeking two full-time family physicians and URGENT SUMMER LOCUM NEED - July 18 to Sept 9
The tight-knit and collegial Dawson City physician group is looking for two full time family physicians to join us! Full time contract is 38 weeks/year, housing is provided, and pay/retention bonuses are extremely competitive. There is also locum need at times throughout the year, with URGENT SUMMER LOCUM NEED from July 18th to Sept 9th, 2022.
Dawson is a fun, healthy town of about 2,300 (much higher in the summer with tourists and gold miners) with amazingly active outdoors and arts scenes and a vibrant First Nation. We are located in West-central Yukon near the Dempster highway and beautiful Tombstone park, 600km North of Whitehorse.
There is a six inpatient bed hospital with 24h ER, and basic lab/X-Ray services. Docs do 24h call for ER; the on-call doctor sees ER and clinic walk-ins, but can be at home outside of clinic hours. Call is on average 1-in-4.5. Nearest OR and basic specialty services are in Whitehorse.
Weekdays 9-5 in clinic and/or ER are remunerated by contract at a generous daily rate while after-hours and weekend billing is fee-for-service, plus an ER call stipend, all paid at 100%. Housing and licensing costs are provided in return for a 38-week commitment to the community annually, along with very competitive retention bonuses.
To work here, you should be comfortable working in a rural, remote ER and have had ACLS and ATLS training. PALS, though not necessary, would also be an asset. We support one another with difficult cases, complex procedures, etc. Physicians also have the option to provide occasional support to EMS for helicopter extractions at remote sites. Licensure with the Yukon Medical Council and Hospital Privileges are required. A taste for wild mushroom and berry foraging, live music, mountain biking, hunting, canoeing, cross-country skiing or hiking are not required but will likely develop when you’re here!
