Experience the rewards of teaching at our 337-bed general hospital with responsibility for tertiary and high-level acute care services for the entire province. A teaching hospital, the General is physically connected to Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Faculty of Medicine. Teaching opportunities that extend into all facilities are available for you, including our modern surgical and emergency departments and our 78-bed child friendly in-patient unit at the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre. If your skills are suited to Mental Health and Addictions, our program provides 200 in-patient beds and a range of out-patient and community-based services.
Work with leaders in technology, especially in the field of clinical communications and distance education. With the large number of rural and remote communities in Newfoundland Labrador, Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) has become an essential skill for our health care staff. This computer system enables diagnostic images (X-rays, MRI, ultrasounds and CT scans) to be digitally captured, viewed, stored and transmitted from one site to another. Physicians practicing throughout the entire province benefit from these technological advances.
As a member of our medical staff you have the opportunity to influence policy and contribute at every level. Our physicians present issues of concern to the Local Medical Advisory Representatives who report to the Chief Executive Officer of the authority. Issues from physicians at both the program and institutional level have a way of being openly discussed and resolved. You will soon notice that our Board members are committed to active involvement and are very conscious of the need to talk with the communities we serve. They conduct comprehensive community health needs assessments using a population health approach as a means of ensuring that we continuously improve how we deliver health care in Newfoundland and Labrador.
