A range of job opportunities for qualified general practitioners are available throughout BC in urban and suburban communities, as well as rural and remote locations. Options range from permanent full-time and part-time work in a family practice clinic to short-term and long term locum positions. Opportunities for GPs can also include teaching medical students and residents, being part of a maternity care group, working in special clinics (mental health, youth, seniors), and residential care. Local Divisions of Family Practice can provide you with details about local job opportunities and can connect you with local GPs.
BC is moving towards a new and exciting future of primary care, with a focus on the Patient Medical Home, where family doctors work collaboratively with a team of other health care providers to provide longitudinal, coordinated, comprehensive care of patients. Opportunities to work in a team- based care setting are included in the links below.
