General Practitioner in Oncology - BC Cancer Vernon

General Practitioner in Oncology

BC Cancer– Vernon

Part-Time (0.4 FTE-flexible)

Vernon, BC


The Department of Medical Oncology, based in Kelowna, partners with Medical Oncologists and team members at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, to provide collaborative cancer care to patients from the Vernon and North Okanagan area. We are looking for a General Practitioner in Oncology to join our well established and collegial team.


In BC we have some of the best cancer control results in the country, with access to more state-of-the-art drug therapies than any other province. Our provincial structure is the key to our success, and we work to achieve expert and safe cancer care, closer to home, throughout our regions. As a GPO in Vernon, you will report to the Head of Medical Oncology, BC Cancer-Kelowna for issues related to patient care, research, teaching and standards of care.


The Vernon area boasts spectacular beauty, agricultural abundance, and a wide variety of recreational options, including golf and hiking; skiing and mountain biking at Silver Star Mountain; and renowned Nordic ski trails and biathlon facilities at Sovereign Lake. The Vernon Jubilee hospital staff and North Okanagan medical community are welcoming and collegial. A medical career in this area can provide excellent academic and personal opportunities.


Applicants must be eligible for licensure in British Columbia and have Canadian certification (FRCP, FRCS or CCFP) at the time of appointment. You must also be suitable for appointment to the University of British Columbia. If you have no prior experience as a GPO, BC Cancer will support your training, involving both didactic virtual teaching, and in-clinic patient-related instruction.


We are looking to add a part-time GPO to a core group of 3 other GPO physicians and two medical oncologists, with a third medical oncologist under active recruitment. The available FTE is at least 0.4 but with some possibility of flexibility, depending on interest and other commitments.
