The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) is working to build a model of specialty care that allows the right patient to see the right care provider at the right time.
In EM, this requires a mix of clinical and administrative work comprised of ED shifts, participation on committees and attending rounds.
Shifts and duties may be at more than one ED in the zone.
Full time work in EM is considered to be 1722 direct clinical patient care hours per year in level 3 and 4 community EDs and 1344 direct clinical patient care hours per year in level 1 and 2 EDs.
This is based on 46 weeks per year with the remainder as an option for vacation time. This is a rough guideline only but is a generally accepted standard endorsed by CAEP.
Candidates must be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia. Candidates are required to have current ACLS, ALTS, AIME, BCLS and PALS.
Having the College of Family Physicians of Canada ER certification would be considered to be an asset.
Financial support is available for a site visit and relocation.
