Work Environment

Office Environment

Our new clinic space has enough room to facilitate 6 clinical extender offices plus two waiting rooms, and three Medical Office Assistants. Working at the Edmonton location as a physician means that they get supported from each member of the team. Our goal is to ensure the physician can set the number of patients they wish to see. Patients get accessed by clinical extenders, if the physician chooses to work with them, before seeing the physician to do any pre charting and help with any concerns. When the physician is ready to consult with their patient and determine if medical cannabis is the right treatment option for them, all they need to do is run over their pre-set questions, sign off on the patients the medical document and send the patient to complete education with one of our patient educator team members.
You will have access to multiple medical professionals while working at NHS. In the clinic, you will have access to Medical Office Assistants (MOA) and Clinical Extenders. The MOA will ensure that both the clinic and physician schedules run smoothly throughout the day, while performing all administrative and clinical tasks. Clinical Extenders will help conduct patient appointments and assist in tasks delegated by physicians or clinic manager.

Systems

You will be trained to use our proprietary prescribing technology.
As a support system, Natural Health Services has an Education Centre at each of our locations. In Edmonton, our Education Centre is down the hall from our clinic for ease and convenience. After their clinical appointment, patients will go to the Education Centre as an extra level of support in their medical cannabis journey. There, patients have access to Patient Educators, who will assist them in registering for their medication with a Licensed Producer, as well as answer any and all cannabis related questions they may have. Patient Educators are in place to support the physicians by educating patients on accessing their prescription when it comes to ingestion and preparation.

Community/Neighbourhood

Natural Health Services is situated on 111th Avenue NW, which is close to the Edmonton City Centre Airport and Kingsway Garden Mall. The clinic is located inside of the centre, which is also home to a number of other medical facilities. The property has an abundance of parking and can be easily accessed by both pedestrians and vehicles.
