Ophthalmologist
 
Position Description:
Horizon Health Network is actively seeking an Ophthalmology specialist for Miramichi, New Brunswick. We would have particular interest in an Ophthalmologist with interest in the broad spectrum of general ophthalmology including intravitreal injections. Miramichi’s current service is comprised of two full time ophthalmologists who, in addition to comprehensive care, provide subspecialty expertise in the areas of glaucoma and advanced anterior segment surgery as well as Oculoplastics. Patients requiring vitreoretinal or orbital surgery are presently referred to neighbouring Nova Scotia. Corneal surgery would be a valuable adjunct to our existing services. 
 
The successful applicant will be expected to provide professional services as determined by the Dept of Ophthalmology, and the RHA.  The core responsibilities of this position are a comprehensive full-time community-based practice in ophthalmology providing both inpatient and outpatient services, and participation in the on-call rota with Ophthalmologists in both Miramichi and other regions, as needed. 
 
Royal College certification is preferred, but consideration will be given to other comparable qualifications.  Candidates must be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick, and would need to be in possession of adequate credentials to obtain medical staff privileges. Candidates must have acceptable liability coverage (eg. CMPA). 
 
Financial Details:
Remuneration would be on a fee for service basis with an expected income of no less than $500,000 in the first year. Expenses have traditionally been in the 30% range dependent upon office structure. 

Incentives: 
The Horizon Health Authority offers a relocation incentive. The New Brunswick Medical Society offers a retention program and generous CMPA and CME reimbursements.
 
The government of New Brunswick currently offers a rural recruitment incentive to those who meet the eligibility criteria. Incentives are reviewed annually.
