Jobs in Nunavik
Family physicians and specialists can practice in hospitals or CLSCs.
Practice in a hospital (Puvirnituq on the Hudson coast, Kuujjuaq on the Ungava) includes hospitalization, emergency, consultations with or without appointment, on-duty service in the hospital including medical evacuations (medevac) from the communities and obstetrics to support midwives. The practice in CLSCs (points of service) is similar but does not include hospitalization or in-person attendance of medical evacuations from the communities. Team work is a cornerstone of northern practice. All the communities can count on nurses with a broadened role who provide all front-line care: consultations without appointment, emergencies and on-duty service (assessment over telephone and in person). They can call a physician as needed.
