Quick access to New Brunswick and PEI make this location a small town charm with regional access to the larger centres of Halifax and Moncton in less than 2 hours.

    The Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow is a regional hospital providing a full range of health services. There are currently two ophthalmologists on staff. One ophthalmologist is retiring at the end of 2018 and the other is reducing to three days a week and will stop surgery. The surgical ophthalmologist currently has one full day of surgery a week and this surgical time will be available for an incoming ophthalmologist. 

    The ophthalmology practice is located in a large suite in the hospital where the two ophthalmologists share space. Each ophthalmologist has two fully equipped examining lanes. In addition to the four examining rooms, there is a shared waiting room, separate but shared reception areas, a pre screen room (shared), and SLT, YAG & diode lasers. Rent is very reasonable and includes cleaning, electricity, maintenance and one phone line through the hospital switchboard.

    Elsewhere in the hospital there is an ophthalmology unit staffed by one full time and one part-time (half-time) assistants who are both certified as Orthoptists and COMT and who both work exclusively on behalf of the ophthalmologists. In the eye unit there is a variety of equipment including a Humphrey Field Analyzer, Zeiss Cirrus OCT, Retina Camera with Fluorescein capability and a minor surgical suite. 

    The retiring ophthalmologist is looking for someone to take over his patients. He personally owns the equipment in his two examining rooms and he is interested in potentially giving the equipment away or disposing of it at a very reasonable price. The lasers, OCT, and all other equipment is owned and maintained by the hospital for the exclusive use of the ophthalmologists. 

    Start date is flexible but would preferably be at the end of 2018, however for summer of 2019 is possible. 

    The OR has a new Zeiss microscope, an Alcon phaco machine and an outstanding surgical support staff.

    The Ophthalmologist should be certified or eligible for certification by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (FRCSC) and must be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia.

Our hospitalist program currently covers 45-70 hospital inpatients split evenly among three hospitalist lines/physicians. Coverage is divided into seven day stretches, with full time coverage being seven days “on” followed by seven days “off”, with an understanding that physicians can have two “on” weeks off per year for vacation.

    We have a young hospitalist program at the CEHHC and are looking for engaged and collaborative physicians who can help flesh out and develop our program along with our current members. Some current areas of interest are developing morbidly and mortality rounds, generating an online repository of educational/reference materials specific to hospital medicine, and regular peer-led education sessions. More ideas are welcome.

    The setting for our program is the CEHHC, which is a friendly and collegial workplace where everyone actually does know your name. The hospital is the newest in the province, having been opened in 2012. In addition to several outpatient clinic spaces, the hospital houses a full time Emergency Room, 7 bed ICU, four Internists, four General Surgeons, three Urologists, three Paediatricians, and five Obs/Gynes.

  • General Internist or Gastroenterologist: Antigonish

    Physician Category: Specialist
    Employment Term: Full-time

    We are seeking a full-time internist or gastroenterologist to join our group, based out of St. Martha's Regional Hospital in Antigoish. Our team currently includes a cardiologist and three general internists with expertise in cardiology, rheumatology, and endocrinology.  Inpatient call is equally shared and includes coverage of a 6-bed ICU.  St. Martha’s specialists enjoy collegial relationships with family physicians who often cover their own patients in hospital, and with our complement of specialists including general surgery, ophthalmology, obstetrics/gynecology, psychiatry, pediatrics, plastic surgery, anaesthesia, and otolaryngology. Our radiology department is extremely supportive and includes all imaging modalities from MRI to nuclear medicine.
    Strong supports for internal medicine care include a nurse practitioner-led heart function clinic, a cardiac rehabilitation program, and an excellent diabetes education program.  Clinic space is available in continuity with the hospital at low cost, with physicians having autonomous outpatient practice according to the schedule of their choice.  

    A gastroenterologist (or internist with GI endoscopy training) would be offered 6-8 days of endoscopy per month, with the opportunity to take over the GI practice in a seamless transition if desired. A general internist with training in stress testing would also be most welcome. Call is equally divided among department members, and outpatient scheduling is at the discretion of the individual physician.

    Antigonish is nestled among the rolling hills of Nova Scotia, and is home to St. Francis Xavier University – including the Coady Institute for international development. Students, farmers, fishermen, academics and artists of all stripes rub shoulders at the farmer’s market, the annual Highland Games and numerous community events throughout the year.   The local school system includes French, English, and French immersion options, as well as an international baccalaureate program.  Outdoor and indoor recreational facilities are excellent, partly due to the university presence.  Whether you choose to live in town or in the country, you’re never far from the ocean and Halifax is just two hours away.

Speaking of hockey, this area is home to Sydney Crosby and the Halifax Mooseheads Quebec Junior League Hockey and the centre for many sports programs for adults and young people. Let’s not forget the world class surfing and kite surfing scene in one of the area’s many white sand beaches.

This area is also home to a large fresh seafood industry and rolling wine country, and the quaint town of Tatamagouche. Truro is home to industry and a modern town located on the famous Bay of Fundy and a short drive to the Five Islands Provincial Park with beautiful shores of red clay and fossil finds.
