Contract medical investigator opportunity



The College is inviting applications from registrants with experience in family medicine to conduct on-site practice investigations on a part-time basis (one to two investigations per week).

Under the direction of the deputy registrar, complaints and practice investigations, medical investigators carry out the mandate of the complaints and practice investigations department using predefined assessment tools to review physician practices.  

The primarily role of the investigator is to document deficiencies and provide a report to the Inquiry Committee. It is the Inquiry Committee, not the investigator, that is ultimately responsible for determining whether the subject physician is meeting the expected standard.  

Most investigations are completed within a day and are often completed by a single investigator.  Training will be provided as part of the orientation process; however, experience in conducting assessments would be beneficial.

Candidates must:

  • be in good standing with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC
  • have certification from the College of Family Physicians of Canada
  • work collegially and communicate effectively with College staff and other registrants

Interested candidates should submit a letter of application, with a resume, to the director, complaints and practice investigations by August 28, 2020.
