Community Information

With a scenic harbour setting, the City of Nanaimo is a wonderful family oriented community located on eastern Vancouver Island.  Educational facilities range from elementary through to Vancouver Island University with its full degree and vocational programs.

Nanaimo offers a temperate climate and provides ease of access to many outdoor activities including sailing, scuba diving, fishing, golfing, hiking and mountain biking.  Just one-hour north, winter skiing is available at Mount Washington.  The 800-seat Port Theatre provides a wonderful venue for a broad range of cultural events from live theatre to symphony and variety performances.  Nanaimo’s retail sector affords every shopping convenience and there is a wide selection of restaurants, fine dining facilities and tourist accommodation.

With easy access to Vancouver via ferry and to Victoria via the Island Parkway, Nanaimo offers an enviable West Coast lifestyle.

Job Summary

Bayview is a beautiful small clinic in central Nanaimo, close to the hospital and with views of the ocean and mountains.  This is an excellent opportunity for a physician or group of physicians looking for autonomy and independence in a well-established clinic.  We run an extremely efficient office with state-of-the-art electronic records.  Our overhead is currently under 25%.

The clinic provides space for two physicians working at any time, each with two examining rooms plus a personal office space.  There is flexibility for two full-time physicians, or up to four part-time physicians.  We do not currently offer hospital in-patient coverage or obstetrical care, and we do not operate a walk-in clinic.

We are looking for two or more physicians to replace retiring physicians over the next one-to-two years.  This is a very flexible opportunity, as we are willing to work with an incoming physician or group in any way that suits, to provide a successful transfer of care.  This could include one of us retiring completely as early as this year, or a gradual transition of the entire clinic over the next two years.

Come and enjoy a satisfying medical practice and the wonderful relaxed lifestyle of Vancouver Island.
