Duffus Health Centre is seeking a full-time family physician to join this collaborative care clinic located on Bayers Road in Halifax. The clinic has 11 Family Physicians, a community based Psychiatrist, 3 Family Practice Nurses and a full-time Social Worker. Additionally, the clinic holds collaborative partnerships with Pediatric Mental Health and the IWK Woman’s Health Clinic. Composed of a group of dynamic and skilled individuals, the physicians working at Duffus Health Centre are highly collaborative and actively engage in cross referrals of patients within the group (IUD insertion, joint injections, accutane treatment, obesity counselling, HTN and cardiac assessment, minor procedures, etc.) This provides a diversity of services for the patients and enables physicians to explore specific areas of interest. There is a walk-in clinic for patients of the clinic every weekday morning and the physicians rotate coverage of this clinic. There is no call requirement and physicians are free to set their own clinic schedules to best suit their needs (evening and weekend clinics can be booked at the discretion of the physician). Typically the physicians cross cover for one another so it is not necessary to secure locum coverage for vacations/conferences/short term illness. The remuneration is through an APP with a competitive overhead rate. All administrative services are provided along with all necessary practice infrastructure (furnished examination rooms, computers, etc.). The clinic has been on an electronic medical record since 2007 and is using the MedAccess EMR.

Candidates must be certified or 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.

Central Zone: Halifax, Eastern Shore, and Windsor-West Hants

From the modern yet historic city of Halifax, to the rugged and wild Eastern Shore, this region of Nova Scotia is a compelling study of contrasts. The largest city east of Montreal, Halifax is the cosmopolitan centre, bursting with restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife. But just a short drive (or bike ride) out of the city, the allure of nature envelopes you. Imagine dinner and the theatre at night, surfing and hiking the next morning.
