Locum Needs: January 2 to 31, 2020
Permanent Need: Ongoing need 1-2 days/week, and looking for a GP to take over practice within 1 year
A doctor at a well-functioning dual group practice in the Oakridge area is looking for locum coverage in January 2020, and is also retirring within the next year in hope that someone to take over their practice. This opportunity does not require on call, hospital visits, or obstetrics, but the current GP does perform a lot of prenatal care as most patients are female. There are no patients in residential care homes, and the total patient panel size is around 2,000 patients, half of which speak Cantonese. The practice is located at the Oakridge Centre with easy access to transit, ample free parking and great shopping. The clinic has 2 GPs and 3 exam rooms. They are a full service family medicine clinic and Oscar EMR. The retiring GP practices in English and Cantonese, so experiences with these languages would definitely be an asset. The GP is open to mentor and train any interested GP on how to practice in Cantonese.
On-Call/After Hour Requirements
The clinic has 2 GPs and 3 exam rooms.
As a relatively young community, Oakridge is constantly evolving and growing in terms of its features and makeup. The Oakridge Centre mall - Vancouver's first shopping centre - is perhaps the largest draw bringing people into the neighbourhood. Langara College, which delivers a number of educational services to more than 23,000 students, is also located in Oakridge on West 49th east of Cambie. Oakridge has expanded even more with the construction of the Canada Line along Cambie Street, which was completed in August 2009. Two stations, Oakridge – 41st Avenue Station and Langara – 49th Avenue Station. The city is conducting a "master planning" process for the Oakridge Centre area, potentially increasing retail, residential, commercial, office and community uses on the site.
