    Practice details: Practice with one other physician at present. Practice size currently 500 but may be up to 750 patients by the time of the locum period. Although relatively small patient load at present, average day has 18 patients booked. My current office hours are Monday to Wednesday 9:00 – 4:30 and Thursday 10:45 – 8:30. Typical family medicine practice including office based visits (all age groups although large geriatric population), inpatient coverage at Soldier’s Memorial Hospital (1 week in 6 approximately with home call), and minor procedures. Office will be located in a recently renovated, state of the art family practice building set up to be run as a collaborative practice in the near future (possibly by the time of locum start). Nightingale is the EMR used and physicians do their own billing through this (quite easy to learn and good skill to have) for office visits and reception staff doing inpatient billing. We have one full time receptionists and 1 part time receptionist. I am currently on an APP contract and there is a good possibility for a locum physician to continue with a similar short term contract for the locum period.

The Nova Scotia Health Authority provides health services to Nova Scotians and some specialized services to Atlantic Canadians. We operate hospitals, health centres and collaborative community-based programs across the province.

    The Western Zone is supported by three regional facilities, as well as a number of community hospitals and health centres. Specialty services are distributed among the three regional hospitals located in Bridgewater, Kentville and Yarmouth.

    The Western Zone encompasses the coastal beaches and fishing communities of the South Shore, the Acadian and Cajun historic French communities on the Acadian Shore, and breathtaking farmers markets, apple orchards and vineyards of the Annapolis Valley. Western Zone is home to the centrally located Kejimakujik National Park and the UNESCO World Heritage recognized Bay of Fundy. There’s something for everyone in this region, all within 3 hours commute to the capital city.

    An additional Radiologist is needed to join our dynamic group at the Yarmouth Regional Hospital. The remuneration is above average and the 12 plus weeks of vacation/conference time per year are particularly attractive. Our high quality practice is fully PACs integrated and comprised of general radiology (including DR), digital fluoroscopy, mammography (regional center for breast screening with a fixed Digital Mammographic unit and one mobile unit), ultrasound (four units), 64 slice GE multi-detector CT, GE 1.5T MRI, nuclear medicine with SPECT-CT, and bone densitometry.

    We are looking for an individual who will participate in breast imaging and who has skill in stereotactic biopsies and ideally MRI breast imaging. The successful applicant ideally would also be experienced (or willing to be trained) in MRI breast biopsies. Interventional procedural skills for our Hemodialysis Unit and basic non-vascular interventional radiology skills would be an asset.

    Opportunities are also available to individuals interested in providing locum coverage.

    Candidates must be certified or be eligible for certification by Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and must be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia.
