Position(s) available for obstetrician/gynecologist(s) with: FRCSC qualifications; with Obstetrical and/or Gynecologic privileges at an site Edmonton Zone site for 0.1 FTE clinic work at the Women’s Health Clinic at NECHC.

The Women’s Health Clinic has been running since the opening of NECHC in 1999 and continues to have active OB-GYN physicians who work primarily at a variety of sites within Edmonton Zone. The original clinic was funded and operated in order to address needs of women in the Northeast quadrant of the city who were underserviced, who had limited access to medical and specialist care and had obstetrical and gynecology concerns. There was a strong focus on building a team that particularly focused on Indigenous, Refugee and Immigrant Women’s Health concerns who are often underserved in the mainstream health system. The NE area of the city also has needs as demand from local practitioners and from the NEHC Emergency Department. The clinic aims to support all of these constituents.

Because of complex concerns of many of the patients, the funding arrangement for physicians is by a Clinical ARP which reimburses physicians with sessional payment as outlined in the AMA agreement. This payment system allows physicians to be compensated for extra time that they may need to spend. New recruits will need to apply to be a “participating physician” for this program. Advice and help to do this will be provided for successful applicants.

A colposcopy service has been provided by our clinic, and is another important need, but now requires one or more dedicated colposcopists to build the program. Specialists with colposcopy training are also welcome to apply and need not be active in obstetrics.


Interested applicants should apply online.
