The word “Kawartha” was given to this area by the Mississauga First Nations people meaning “bright waters and happy lands.” It’s the perfect metaphor for this medical practice opportunity, rich with possibility. It’s a world apart from city congestion and crime rates.
In fact, the Kawarthas boast the best of all worlds. The region is a Mecca for recreation, sports, arts and culture, and diverse dining opportunities. The community is nestled in nature, yet urban centres such as Peterborough and Toronto are within easy reach.
But don’t mistake the idea that choosing to settle in tranquility means “settling” for a sleepy medical career. For the practising physician, nurse practitioner, or healthcare professional, the Kawarthas promise a vibrant future.
Many physicians today are choosing to practice within a family health team setting given its many advantages. The Kawartha North Family Health Team is no exception, offering:
- Extremely competitive, salaried compensation that includes paid vacation, paid sick leave and personal development time, malpractice/liability insurance coverage, and a supplementary extended benefits allowance
- Ample opportunity to a full patient rosters and maximize compensation levels
- A turnkey practice with complete ongoing administrative and nursing support, allowing for a more healthy balance of work and lifestyle and more time to focus on your patients
