  • Triage of patients to be seen through the mobile and virtual clinics

  • Urgent primary care access for same day / next day appointments to support people who don’t have a primary care provider.
  • More specialized services to meet the needs of a particular population like immunization offerings, well woman, etc.

 As part of a collaborative team, HCPs will also participate in:

  • Cross-functional and team-based training
  • Collaboration with colleagues in person and/or remotely.
  • Creation of service definition, standards, and refinement

Education, Experience, and Licensing Requirements:

  • Healthcare provider accreditation in NS
  • Experience working in your field is an asset, but new graduates will also be considered.

  • Humble – willing to ask questions, know your own limits, leverage the skills and knowledge of others.
  • Hungry – want to create something new in healthcare, be part of a high-functioning team, learn new skills.
