General Practitioners for Alberta Hospital Edmonton
Alberta Health Services’ Clinical Department of Addictions and Mental Health, is to expand our complement of General Practitioners which provide non-psychiatric medical care.
Alberta Hospital, Edmonton sits on a self-contained campus of 275 acres in northeast Edmonton. It is a 304 bed facility offering Adult Rehabilitation and Forensic Psychiatric inpatient and community services. The facility is currently undergoing a 15 million dollar redevelopment which is due to be completed in 2014 that will add an additional 80 inpatient beds.
Our General Practioners tend to the various medical needs of our psychiatric patients. From baseline physical assessment to day-to-day management of chronic illnesses including: hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, pulmonary and gastroenterological issues. Minor procedures such as sutures may be done on site. In situations requiring more emergent or complex treatment, patients are transferred to other facilities as appropriate.
These physicians work days Monday to Friday seeing patients in clinic and providing treatment. They may also see patients on the unit as necessary. On call service is typically not required. Remuneration is on a fee-for-service basis.
The successful candidates will have an MD, preferably with a CCFP designation and will be eligible for licensure in the province of Alberta. Experience with psychiatric patients is an asset as well as an ability to deal with patients in crisis.
