As a contract or fee-for-service practitioner, the Family Physician will collaborate with a multi-disciplinary team in providing health care services to the Region, including inpatient care, clinic services, emergency department work and care in personal care homes in the surrounding communities. The Physicians will participate in the Region’s Nurse Managed Care initiative, as well as in the delivery of primary care and PCH services on a part-time/as-needed basis in Whitemouth, Manitoba. The Physician will maintain full-time Clinic hours and be available on site not less than four days per week. In keeping with the philosophy of care that has been established within IERHA, the Physician will promote and expand primary health care with a focus on the delivery of a continuum of comprehensive and coordinated services in response to the needs of the community. As such, the Physician is a key member of the networks and teams of health professionals responsible for providing an integrated system of health services accessible on a 24/7 basis, complete with admitting privileges and where on-call coverage is shared on a rotational basis requiring the Physician to provide 24-hour ER coverage up to 6 times per month. The Physician also has the opportunity to play large leadership roles, including participation on the Community Health Committee; to engage in continuing medical education activities and mandatory training; to participate in special projects; to provide clinical advice in such areas as standards of practice and care, and; to lead the education, supervision and evaluation of medical students and other health care professionals.

IERHA is deeply patient-centered, in an environment of mutual respect, courtesy, collegiality and strong community support and engagement. As a result, the successful candidates are confident physician leaders with strong clinical and acute care skills developed over several years (minimum 3 years) in a GP environment, who value practicing in a team-based environment, and who are interested in contributing to the creation of new delivery models. The Physician will be required to work independently and will be solely responsible for the full range of patient care in the Emergency Department and on the wards during on-call shifts or in the absence of other on-site providers. As such, relevant and sufficient emergency and minor surgery experience is required. The successful candidates must hold a medical degree and hold, or be eligible for, immediate certification with the Medical Council of Canada. They must also be members of, or be eligible for immediate membership in, the College of Family Physicians of Canada and hold, or be eligible for, CCFP certification. As well, the successful candidates must hold, or be eligible for, immediate registration and licensure with the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Manitoba and satisfy the appropriate requirements for Medical Privileges with the IERHA. They must also have, or obtain, CMPA or equivalent coverage. The IERHA expects the chosen candidates to commit to reside in the surrounding area.

Compensation is derived from fee-for-service income.

At the option of each selected Physician, the position will be compensated on either a Contract or Fee-for-Service basis. In either case, the Physician will remain self-employed and no employee benefits will be provided by the IERHA. If the Contract option is selected, the mechanism of payment will be in accordance with the Rural, Brandon & Northern Independent Contractor GP Agreement. Under this arrangement, it is expected that the Physician will see approximately 20 patients/day.
