Family Physician: Canning/Wolfville

Calling Nova Scotia home means ocean views, active living and welcoming communities. Practicing here means working with passionate colleagues, providing world class care, and helping people be healthy and stay healthy, for generations. 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 historic French communities on the Acadian Shore, and farmers markets, breathtaking apple orchards and vineyards of the Annapolis Valley. Western Zone is home to the centrally located Kejimkujik National Park and the UNESCO World Heritage recognized Bay of Fundy. There’s something for everyone in this region, all within a 1-3 hour commute to the capital city.

We have an opportunity for a family physician that not only offers flexibility of a 0.5-1.0 FTE but also the location. Canning, is a rural practice with one other physician who works in close affiliation with the Wolfville physicians at Mud Creek Medical.  This opportunity will allow a physician the best of both worlds of having a rural practice in a picturesque farming community and an ability to practice in a busy university town, home of Acadia University.

Depending on your professional interests, physicians may shape their practice to include: nursing home coverage, obstetrical services and ER coverage to name a few services available to participate. The Kentville Regional Hospital, a training site as part of Dalhousie University’s Family Medicine Residency Training Program, is only 15 minutes away. Physicians may have an opportunity to work with residents and learners.
Candidates must be eligible for certification by Canadian College of Family Physicians and must be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia. Support is available for a site visit and relocation.
