About this job

Due to clinic expansion has arisen a great opportunity to join this established medical clinic with experienced and supportive staff. This practice offers both a fee for service and Family Health Group (FHG) model.

Here's an overview of how the FHG model works:

1. Group Practice: In the FHG model, Family Physicians typically work in a group practice. This group can include multiple Family Physicians, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare providers.

2. Enrolled Patient Roster: Family Physicians in FHGs have an enrolled patient roster, which means they have a set number of patients assigned to their care. This approach allows for continuity of care and more personalized patient-doctor relationships.

3. Capitation-Based Funding: The FHG model is based on capitation, which means that physicians receive a set monthly fee per enrolled patient. This fee covers a range of primary care services, including office visits and certain medical procedures.

4. Comprehensive Care: Family Physicians in FHGs are responsible for providing comprehensive care to their patients, including preventive care, chronic disease management, and acute care services.

5. Flexibility: While the FHG model provides stable and predictable income through capitation, it also allows flexibility in terms of how Family Physicians organize their practices. They can decide on the specific services they offer and how they manage their patient rosters.

6. Incentives: The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care provides incentives for Family Physicians practicing in FHGs to deliver high-quality care, including bonuses for preventive care and managing patients with chronic diseases.

7. Interprofessional Care: FHGs often incorporate a team-based approach to care, with healthcare professionals like nurses, dietitians, and social workers working together to provide comprehensive services to patients.

With Ontario removing the requirement for the MCCQE examination for GP's with any of these qualifications; MRCGP, MICGP, RACGP, ACRRM or DABFM, now is the perfect time to consider this wonderful opportunity.
