Job Description

A fantastic opportunity for someone wanting only half time radiology position! Enjoy half time, or with coverage for colleagues, expand the work into something more.

The ideal candidate for this half time Radiology position will be someone with Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Royal College certification and someone who enjoys outdoor recreation and the family life that a rural community can provide. Our collaborative general radiology team provides CT (two 64 slice units), Ultrasound including echocardiography, Bone Mineral Density, Diagnostic Digital Mammography with stereotactic biopsy, and MRI services. The successful candidate would be expected to be competent in core interventional radiology and mammography. We share pro rata in the workload for each modality and our on-call rotation is 1-2 days a week and 1 in 8 weekends.

Trail is home to the regional hospital for the Kootenay Boundary area of about 70,000 people. All specialist services excluding thoracic surgery and neurology/neurosurgery are provided, affording the opportunity to build close collegial relationships with specialists from other disciplines. The hospital has a renal unit, oncology suite and 6 bed ICU.

While we do not currently take advantage of UBC Teaching opportunities, there is the opportunity to do so as the Kootenay Boundary is a UBC teaching site.

Consider a locum to check out the area! Nuclear Medicine is not needed for locum interest.
