Family Physician: Yarmouth

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 are recruiting a family physician in the town of Yarmouth. This practice is located at the Ocean View Family Practice, which is attached to the Yarmouth Regional Hospital. This clinic is also a training site for the Dalhousie Family Medicine Residency Program which provides an opportunity to work as a preceptor with medical students and residents. The expectation is to provide office-based comprehensive primary care as well as inpatient care at the Yarmouth Regional Hospital.

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. Physicians should also have an interest in working with learners. Support is available for a site visit and relocation.
