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.  This opportunity would be open to both new graduates and experienced physicians. 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).  

The Miramichi area consists of the city of Miramichi, and surrounding villages, and provides health care services to the Northumberland county area, with a local catchment of over 45,000 patients. The shortage of ophthalmology services in Northern New Brunswick has expanded our services to cover a population of approximately 90,000.    The Miramichi Regional Hospital is a 161-bed hospital with a full range of primary care and specialty services. The medical staff of about 75 members includes primary care physicians, surgeons, internists, anesthetists, pediatricians, radiologists, pathologists, ob/gyns and other specialties.
