AHS is recruiting for this position.
AHS Sponsorship for CPSA Practice Readiness Assessment is not offered for this position.

The Tertiary Neurorehabilitation Unit is a 45 bed inpatient unit located at the Fanning Centre. It provides client-centered specialized rehabilitation to individuals with impairments and activity limitations resulting from a neurological condition, predominantly strokes. Family physicians are part of the expert team in the rehabilitation of survivors and other neurological conditions. The Team provides assessment, individualized and group treatment, consultation, education and home assessment services to facilitate client's recovery of function and reintegration to their community.

The Family Physician works closely to support patients through the course of inpatient rehabilitation. A physiatrist is available regularly for consultation. This consultation generally involves assessing spasticity, pain, function and recommending investigations or treatments. There is an expectation of on-call coverage 1 in 5 weeks throughout the year.

The Family Physician is the most responsible physician for the patient. The Family Physician admits the patient and provides daily scheduled care including response to any changes in patient condition which require urgent attention. After inpatient rehabilitation is completed, the Family Physician provides a timely and full discharge summary communicating the course of inpatient care, patient status and required follow up for successful reintegration into the community.
