Physician Employment Opportunities

Port Colborne is actively seeking family physicians to join the existing medical community. We are in need of family physicians because of continued growth in our practices and the retirement of several physicians in the coming years. The family physicians in Port Colborne have a range of practice interests, and participate fully with teaching medical students from several medical schools in Ontario, including McMaster University, University of Toronto, and University of Ottawa. Port Colborne is proud to host a Rural Medical Week every year through the Rural Ontario Medical Program (ROMP). We host students, and our physicians are preceptors in all areas of family medicine.

Port Colborne is committed to finding and retaining quality physicians for the community. We are offering an exciting, lucrative incentive package for new physicians coming to the community, and will ensure your arrival is as smooth as possible. Relocation expenses are included as part of our exciting package. We would be happy to showcase our community and the surrounding attractions on a site visit that we will arrange and fund for you and your spouse.

Please contact the City of Port Colborne's Health Services Coordinator at the number listed below to further discuss exciting employment and lifestyle opportunities for physicians in our community.

Medical Education Opportunities

Port Colborne is a vibrant community on the shores of Lake Erie that are minutes away from many major centres but surrounded by water and green space.   We have an active medical community and our family physicians are involved in a wide range of clinical activities including office practices, ER work, office procedures, counselling, addictions/methadone clinic, eating disorders treatment and birth control clinics.  Many of our physicians in town have been active in teaching medical students, clinical clerks and residents for years.  They have faculty appointments through McMaster University and we are a community who is active with the Rural Ontario Medical Program in teaching students and hosting an annual Rural Medical Week to showcase our opportunities for medical students.  We are also involved in teaching through the Niagara Campus of the DeGroote Medical School at McMaster University.

Port Colborne is actively seeking medical professionals to come to our community for locums, learning, lifestyle and long-term opportunities.  We are also committed to excellence not only among our existing physicians, but also by working to teach future doctors in our community. We have an enthusiastic medical staff that is eager to welcome students for elective rotations or core family medicine rotations. The community is eager to welcome learners both professionally and personally in work settings and on the street downtown.

If you are interested in coming to learn in Port Colborne, please contact the Rural Ontario Medical Program or our Health Services Coordinator. We look forward to learning with you and showing you all that medicine in a small community can be.
