ACADEMIC FAMILY PHYSICIANS
The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba welcomes applications for three Academic Family Physicians.
Two unique positions are being offered collaboratively by the Department of Family Medicine and the J A Hildes Northern Medical Unit. These vacancies have arisen from the creation of a Northern/Remote residency training stream within the Department of Family Medicine which prepares graduates to practice in northern and remote communities. We are seeking family physicians with northern experience, an interest in teaching, and a desire to combine northern and urban practice. Each position will work half-time as an academic Family Physician in a Winnipeg-based teaching clinic, and half-time with the J A Hildes Northern Medical Unit providing care to Manitoba First Nations Communities.
Additionally, the Department of Family Medicine is seeking a full-time Academic Family Physician to work in Kildonan Medical Centre, a Winnipeg-based teaching clinic. The teaching clinics, and the hospitals they are associated with, operate under the umbrella of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (for more information go to www.wrha.mb.ca).
All three positions will have the opportunity to provide interesting clinical care (including primary care, inpatient medical care, and obstetrical care). Each will also teach and supervise Family Medicine residents, and have the chance to engage in scholarly activity and administrative work as negotiated.
Winnipeg is the vibrant capital of Manitoba, and a diverse multicultural city known for its friendly and welcoming spirit. A mid-sized city of over 740,000, Winnipeg offers a wide array of world-class arts, culture and festivals, globally inspired cuisine, professional sports teams, and breathtaking prairie scenery throughout the seasons. Northern Manitoba is majestic, rugged, unspoiled, rich in tradition, and a living portrait of the Aboriginal way of life.
Candidates must be eligible for licensure in the Province of Manitoba. Preference will be given to candidates who hold or are eligible for certification by the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
The University of Manitoba encourages applications from qualified women and men, including members of visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples, and persons with disabilities. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
