Dartmouth General Hospital
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Dartmouth General Hospital is actively recruiting locum hospitalists to join the team at the Dartmouth General Hospital.  Dartmouth General is a bustling community hospital with approximately 140 beds serving the community of Dartmouth and surrounding areas.  The majority of patients within this hospital are rostered to our team of 7 hospitalists, with Internal Medicine primarily serving as a consulting service.  Most of our hospitalists work a two week on/two week off or week on/week off basis, although there is flexibility for other options.  Availability for weekend (minimum 1 in 4) and overnight call shifts (minimum 2 per month) in addition to daily rounding is essential.  Remuneration is $1300/day (plus an after-hours on call stipend and fee-for-service billings for after-hours work).  As well, we cover call for QRT, a Quick Response Team which attends a variety of emergencies outside of the Code Blue with an expected 15 minute response time. 

Candidates must be certified with the College of Family Physicians of Canada and maintain certification of competency.  They must also be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia.  Prior acute care experience is preferred.  This is a unique opportunity to practice in an exceptionally collegial and fast-paced environment at a busy and thriving community hospital!

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.
