RGPLP - General Practitioner needed for Agassiz Community Health Centre

Role and Facility Information

Agassiz is a small farming town located 20 minutes West of Chilliwack.

This practice is a predominantly elderly practice. Approximately 70% that are seen in a given day are over 70 years old.

A typical day at the clinic starts at 10AM, and end at 5PM. Visits are 15 minutes in length.

In total, there are approximately 850 patients in the practice. Because of their age and comorbidities, though, approximately 20-25 of them are seen in a given day. Fortunately, the wait to see the physician in this practice has been exceptionally short (usually less than a day), so patients' problem lists tend to be very manageable.

I do offer hospital services in Chilliwack. If a locum were willing to cover this, this would be ideal. It is not a necessity for this position, though.

What training is provided for the EMR System

Our MOAs will provide the locum with the essentials on how to work profile. The system is fairly simple, so a 30 minute demonstration would likely suffice to show a locum the vast majority of what they would need for their tenure.
