Dawson City - July, Clinic + ER

The tight-knit and collegial Dawson City physician group is looking for two full time family physicians to join us!

Dawson is a fun, healthy town of about 2,300 (much higher in the summer with tourists and gold miners) with amazingly active outdoors and arts scenes and a vibrant First Nation. We are located in West-central Yukon near the Dempster highway and beautiful Tombstone park, 600km North of Whitehorse.

  • There is a six inpatient bed hospital with 24h ER, and basic lab/X-Ray services. Docs do 24h call for ER; the on-call doctor sees ER and clinic walk-ins, but can be at home outside of clinic hours. Call is on average 1-in-4.5.
  • Nearest OR and basic specialty services is Whitehorse, 6h away.
  • Weekdays 9-5 in clinic and/or ER are remunerated by contract at a generous daily rate while afterhours and weekend billing is fee-for-service, plus an ER call stipend. Private billings paid at 100%.
  • Travel, Accomodations and Licensing reimbursed.
  • To work here, you should be comfortable working in a rural, remote ER and have had ACLS and ATLS training. PALS, though not necessary, would also be an asset.
  • We support one another with difficult cases, complex procedures, etc. Physicians also have the option to provide occasional support to EMS for helicopter extractions at remote sites.
  • Licensure with the Yukon Medical Council and Hospital Privileges are required.

A taste for wild mushroom and berry foraging, live music, mountain biking, hunting, canoeing, cross-country skiing or hiking are not required but will likely develop when you’re here!

I've been coming to Watson Lake to do locums for years now. I keep coming back because it's a great group of people and setting for rural medicine. You just can't find this type of medicine in a city. – Dr. Morgan Brache
