 Physician Opportunities

Within the Greater Peterborough Area, including the townships as well as the City of Peterborough, there are opportunities at the present time for 3-5 FTE family physicians. The opportunities range from practices in smaller communities just outside of the City to those within both small and large clinics/partnerships within the City of Peterborough.


At the present time we are planning to replace upwards to 3-5 family physicians in the upcoming year, all due to retirements. Physicians interested in locating in a medical community that is extraordinarily stable and organized in a mutually beneficial way are encouraged to act on these opportunities as soon as possible. Please see contact information further into this web site.

In the spring of 2005, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care announced that there would be five (5) Family Health Team groups implemented in the Peterborough Area. At present, all five groups are fully implemented and the infrastructure of support in terms of representation of allied health workers (nurse practitioners, dieticians, and social workers) are already working effectively in each and every group. Family Physicians wishing to increase their annual compensation would find that exploring opportunities in Peterborough would far surpass the average compensation of family physicians in other parts of the province of Ontario. 

And, because almost all family physicians are part of the five Family Health Team groups there is ample opportunity to become a member of one or the other without much difficulty. Our community also has a fully funded (by the Ministry) Primary Care Office which is staffed by personnel who assist all the groups in the ongoing operational issues of the implementation of the most effective model.

The model works! It is working most effectively in Peterborough! You will not want to miss exploring the advantages of what exists in the Peterborough medical community from a work point of view and the exceptional lifestyle from a family point of view.

The following areas have practice suites presently available and range from "turn key" to "semi-turn key" to partnerships to solo practice. There are also a variety of venues wherein electronic record keeping facilities are already in place or the infrastructure is available to implement electronic offices.

Other practice opportunities also exist or will soon exist in the Township of Galway-Cavendish and Harvey, Township of Asphodel-Norwood and individual, stand-alone practices within the area.


The hospitalist program operates as a department of the Peterborough Regional Health Centre and is led by the Chief of Hospitalist Medicine. Hospitalists work an overlapping cycle rotation following patients from admission to discharge, as much as scheduling/rostering permits. For more information contact The Human Resources Department, Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Peterborough, ON., 705-743-2121


Presently, the Peterborough Regional Health Centre is in a recruitment mode for selected specialists.
