Job Description

The Saskatoon Community Clinic requires a part-time/full-time family physician for its innovative consumer sponsored primary health care centre. Our inter-disciplinary team setting enables practitioners the time, support, and access to services they need to provide quality family and patient centered care. Our team includes counsellors, lab and diagnostic services, nurses, nurse practitioners, dieticians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and pharmacists. We place a strong emphasis on health promotion, disease prevention, quality improvement, and support for persons with special needs. The Clinic operates with an Electronic Medical Record (Med Access).

This position is available specifically to provide extended hours (evening and weekend services), with the possibility of working week days if this is of interest. The successful applicant will primarily work out of our Westside location as part of the Connected Community Care Phase II strategy, an initiative focused on reducing the reliance on emergency department visits, and establishing a more robust interdisciplinary primary health care team with our partner organizations (Saskatchewan Health Authority, Saskatoon Tribal Council, and Central Urban Métis Federation). The Saskatoon Community Clinic Westside is a mix of booked appointments, community outreach, and quick access to primary care for residents in the community. Westside Community Clinic is open 7 days a week, year round, except for statutory holidays. Evening and weekend services improve access to care for residents living in Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods of Riversdale, Pleasant Hill, Caswell Hill, King George and Westmount.

We offer competitive remuneration along with excellent benefits, vacation and study leave provisions.

Job Qualifications

Applicants must be able to obtain a license to practice in Saskatchewan and obtain family medicine privileges with the Saskatchewan Health Authority. Preference will be given to applicants with certification in family medicine.
