PAEDIATRIC SPORTS MEDICINE
RebalanceMD | Victoria, British Columbia
Permanent | Full Time | 0.75-1.0 FTE
RebalanceMD in beautiful Victoria, BC continues its quest to be Canada’s foremost centre of excellence in musculoskeletal care. We are actively looking to recruit a paediatrician or sports medicine physician with expertise in the assessment, diagnosis and management of paediatric musculoskeletal issues.
RebalanceMD is a diverse, exciting clinic providing full spectrum, multidisciplinary musculoskeletal care for patients of all ages and diagnoses. It was developed out of the frustration of patients and healthcare providers alike who were tired of the chaotic nature of the current medical system. The solution was a comprehensive multidisciplinary musculoskeletal care team that unified physicians and adjunct health professionals in a single allied group practice focussed on excellence. We have physicians specializing in all aspects of Orthopaedic surgery (excluding Spine – which is regionally managed by our neurosurgical colleagues), Hand and Reconstructive Surgery, Physiatry, and Sports Medicine including point of care ultrasound assessments and interventions. RebalanceMD also boasts a full spectrum bracing and orthotics department and very active physiotherapy department all within our dynamic and lively clinic space. https://rebalancemd.com/about/#us
This new exciting position will be our first paediatric specialized sports medicine position. It will provide a creative opportunity to grow this aspect of community care including paediatric lifestyle medicine, developmental paediatrics and all aspects of musculoskeletal and sports medicine affecting children, adolescents and young adults. Victoria proudly hosts a number of national level development programs and elite level sports teams that provide huge opportunity to the successful candidate to be involved. Our physicians have a long history of involvement in all levels of amateur and professional sports medicine care.
Victoria boasts the mildest climate in Canada, where gardens bloom year-round. The city is intimately tied to both land and sea with some of the most rugged natural beauty available along the Pacific coast. The city encourages all-season adventure in the great outdoors. You can also take advantage of the diverse historical, architectural and multicultural makeup that comes from being the oldest city in the Pacific Northwest. From Indigenous Peoples history to British colonial and Asian traditions, and the landmarks, culture, cuisine, festivals and vibrant atmosphere that come with them, Victoria is one of the world’s favorite destinations.
The successful candidate will have to be eligible for full licensure by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia. Preference will be given to applicants who have completed fellowship level training in Paediatric Sports Medicine.
