EOI Whitehorse Walk-in Medical Clinic Physicians

Program and Facility Profiles         

The Whitehorse Walk-in Medical Clinic provides timely access to person-centered, trauma informed, primary health care for Yukoners.

  • Services at the clinic take an integrated, team-based approach by utilizing a variety of trained professionals to provide services best suited to their scope of practice and patients’ needs. The clinic is staffed by nurse practitioners, licensed practical nurses, a social worker, medical office assistants and a clinic manager. The clinic will offer care for non-urgent conditions, especially for Yukoners who lack a dedicated primary care provider or those experiencing appointment delays.
  • The clinic has moved to its permanent location at Mah’s Point (108 Jarvis unit 102). This location includes a waiting room, reception area, private clinic rooms, and a general shared office space for primary care practitioners and allied health professionals.
  • Hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 0900 – 1200 and 1300 – 1600. The clinic is closed on statutory holidays. We are in the process of reviewing the hours and we may be providing extended hours into the evening in the future. 
  • The facility and IT components are acquired and maintained by the Government of Yukon. This includes the building, furniture, medical equipment, computers, and associated software, such as the electronic medical record (EMR). There are no overhead costs for physicians.

Client Profile

  • Clinic clients are patients that are not attached to a primary care provider who need treatment for non-urgent conditions.
  • Patients across the age continuum access the clinic for assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, the completion of medically necessary procedures and services, for referrals to other services, and for written prescriptions.

Staffing Profile

  • The walk-in clinic is staffed by an interdisciplinary health care team, including physicians, nurse practitioners, licensed practical nurses, social workers and health clinicians, medical office assistants and a clinic manager. 
  • Walk-in clinic model and physician services
  • Physicians work within a collaborative care model.
  • Allied health providers within the clinic provide triaging, preliminary assessments, and support with referrals.
  • The clinic aims to connect Yukoners who lack a primary care provider with the most appropriate health services to address their needs, while also recognizing the importance of maintaining adequate access to family medicine throughout the territory.

  • Morning shift: 830 – 1230
