Job Posting
full time Pediatrics at Northern Health Authority
Prince George, British Columbia
Job ID: 16548

The University Hospital of Northern British Columbia (UHNBC) Department of Pediatrics is seeking a Pediatrician with interest in Developmental / Behavioural Pediatrics and Child and Youth Mental Health. This position in Prince George includes no commitment to acute medical pediatrics, with no expectation to participate in general pediatric hospital on call coverage. The successful applicant is expected to establish a private consulting practice (payment is fee-for-service), but there is also the opportunity for sessional work with the Northern Health Assessment Network, doing assessments for Complex Developmental Behavioural Conditions (CDBC), Autism Spectrum Disorder and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder throughout the entire Northern Health Authority region. In addition, there is the potential for outreach and telehealth clinics for consulting developmental/behavioural and mental health pediatrics throughout northern BC, including appointments with children living in First Nations/reserve communities or very remote communities.

The successful applicant will work with a collegial team of General Pediatricians at UHNBC in Prince George, British Columbia. UHNBC is the regional referral centre for northern British Columbia, and is affiliated with the Northern Medical Program of the University of British Columbia (UBC). The UHNBC group of six general pediatricians serves a geographical area of approximately 600,000 km and a population of approximately 300,000.

UHNBC has a Level II B NICU, a pediatric inpatient unit and a pediatric ambulatory care clinic. In addition, there is an inpatient adolescent psychiatry unit (the attending physician is a psychiatrist). Some of the psychiatrists in Prince George see adolescents in their private practices and there is one pediatric psychiatrist in Prince George. The Prince George Child Development Centre serves children with special needs. The Child Development Centre is staffed by specialized occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech language therapists. The Northern Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect Clinic is in Prince George, and there is a community-based mental health centre for children and youth in Prince George. There are many children with developmental and behavioural challenges in the community and throughout the region. A pediatrician dedicated to this population would have a large referral base from which to draw with no shortage of work. We need a passionate, committed pediatrician with interest in developmental/ behavioural challenges and mental health issues to join our community in order to continue to improve the quality of life of the children and youth of northern BC.
