Watson Lake - TWO Full-Time Permanent Physicians


Watson Lake Community Hospital is a 6 bed hospital with a 24 hour ER as well as lab and xray services. Our clinic, Parhelion Medical Clinic, is conveniently located within the hospital and makes for an easy commute between clinic and hospital duties.

Docs will work in the clinic M-F, except when they are on call for the hospital. Call shifts are for 24 hours and are typically 1 in 4, occasionally 1 in 3.

Inpatients are cared for by the admitting doctor on call. Clinic is booked 9-5 with mostly 30 minute appointments.

We area collegial group of physicians who rely on each others support and experience during critical scenarios and its often a team approach during these times. With that said, ACLS, PALS, ATLS and other critical care experiences and training are highly recommended.

Our pharmacy is operated as part of Parhelion Medical Clinic and there is no pharmacist on site, so doctors are expected to obtain a rural pharmacist permit and also carry out that role while in clinic/on call.

Clinic days are paid by contract at a generous daily rate and on call is paid a 24 hour stipend plus FFS billing in addition to the stipend.

Excellent retention incentives are offered.
