Employment & Volunteering Opportunities
The word “Kawartha” was given to this area by the Mississauga First Nations people meaning “bright waters and happy lands.” It’s the perfect metaphor for this medical practice opportunity, rich with possibility. It’s a world apart from city congestion and crime rates.
But don’t mistake the idea that choosing to settle in tranquility means “settling” for a sleepy medical career. For the practising physician, nurse practitioner, or healthcare professional, the Kawarthas promise a vibrant future.
In fact, the Kawarthas boast the best of all worlds. The region is a Mecca for recreation, sports, arts and culture, and diverse dining opportunities. The community is nestled in nature, yet urban centres such as Peterborough and Toronto are within easy reach.
Many physicians today are choosing to practice within a family health team setting given its many advantages. The Kawartha North Family Health Team is no exception, offering:
- Extremely competitive, salaried compensation that includes paid vacation, paid sick leave and personal development time, liability insurance coverage, and a supplementary extended benefits allowance
- For physicians, ample opportunity to build full patient rosters and maximum compensation levels
- A turnkey practice with complete ongoing administrative and nursing support, allowing for a more healthy balance of work and lifestyle and more time to focus on your patients
- Improved continuity of care through an integrated multidisciplinary treatment model
Nurse Practitioners & Other Health Professionals
At the Kawartha North Family Health Team, we embrace a multidisciplinary approach to health care. Our medical team also includes nurse practitioners, registered nursing staff, mental health workers, certified diabetic educators, clinic coordinators, and other allied health providers who work with us directly and to whom we refer in the community. We are a great choice for anyone searching for a rewarding career opportunity serving the medical needs of our northern Kawartha Lakes communities.
Volunteers & Board Members
We are always looking for members who can help us organize events and workshops, fundraise, and assist by donating needed skills and services. We’re always in search of enthusiastic volunteers for one-time and ongoing needs.
Or, are you someone with a strong sense of vision and leadership who is keenly interested in shaping healthcare in our community who might be interested in volunteering to serve a term on our Board of Directors. By volunteering to be a member of our board you’ll be making a meaningful and lasting contribution to health care in our community. Experienced professionals in the legal, accounting, and medical fields are always an asset to our team… but any residents of our community who are passionate about the future of health care are truly welcome.
Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d be interested in volunteering in some capacity on our team.
