The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology currently has opportunity for a 1.0 FTE, 6 month locum starting September 2024. Start and end dates flexible.

This locum opportunity is a great opportunity to “try on” the practice to see if we are a good fit.

We are on a generous AFP (guaranteed income with fee-for-service top-up so you can always earn more if you want to work more). We are a very collegial and supportive group with a shared OB practice. We value and are able to achieve an excellent work-like balance.

Currently 1:6 call (from home if desired and <20 min from hospital); well-equipped dedicated call-room available. There is the option to pick up more call if desired. There is no expectation to work post-call.

Average 2 OR days/month (often with a chance to pick up more time if needed), with advanced laparoscopy available. We often assist each other in the OR. Colposcopy time available.

About the Area

Owen Sound is right on beautiful Georgian Bay, with much lower cost of living compared to most of southern ON, and just 2 hours from Toronto/Hamilton. We are right on the Bruce Trail with its beautiful all-season hiking trails, and lots of quiet country roads make for excellent road biking. Summer brings beautiful sandy beaches along both Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, with spectacular scenery and hiking on the nearby Bruce Peninsula. We are very close to Collingwood/Blue Mountain for skiing in winter, with a variety of XC ski trails nearby.
