Should you have any questions after reviewing the notice and our updated FAQ section, please reach out to the clinic directly: 403-609-8333, ext 1.


July 2021 - PHYSICIAN RECRUITMENT!

Ridgeview Medical Centre is a busy family medicine clinic based in the spectacular mountain community of Canmore, Alberta. Our multi-disciplinary team includes 7 x Family Physicians and 2 x Licensed Practical Nurses. In addition to our Family Practice, we also offer evening and weekend walk-in clinic hours; and are members of the Bow Valley PCN.

Ridgeview Medical Centre is looking for a dynamic physician to join our team. The schedule is negotiable; however the expectation would be an ongoing schedule of 3-4 shifts per week, including 1 x evening shift per week (offering same-day / walk-in clinic services) and rotating weekend walk-in / hospitalist coverage. Clinical privileges with Canmore General Hospital are a requirement of the position.

We offer a strong administrative team, excellent PCN nursing support, competitive overhead, and a supportive, collaborative environment in which to grow and nurture your practice.

With all that our spectacular mountain community offers, we of course encourage and support a healthy work/life balance for all team members.

Ridgeview Medical Centre is primarily a family practice during the week; however we do offer a weekend walk-in clinic on Saturday, from 10am-4pm.  Rules apply:

  • Appointments are booked same-day only and cannot be booked in advance. 
  • Unassigned patients who do not return at their assigned appointment time will lose the ability to book ahead in the future and may be required to wait in clinic for any future appointments.  Additional missed appointments will result in dismissal from the clinic.
  • New patients must complete a New Patient Form and provide a copy of their Provincial health card at the time of booking. Photo ID may also be requested. 
  • Please note: If you cannot provide a valid copy of your Provincial Health Card, or if you have Quebec Healthcare, you will need to pay for your appointment.  We are unable to confirm coverage for visitors from other Provinces. 
  • Some services such as travel related appointments or third party medical forms, are not covered by Alberta Health Services and may incur a fee.
