Come join us to live in one of the best places in the world while contributing to growing our referral centre…

‘One of the best places in the world to live?!’ we hear you say! – the ‘lifestyle’ bit!:

British Columbia is renowned for its stunning scenery and unparalleled outdoor pursuits – come join us so you have all this and more in your backyard…

Tri Lake is located in Lake Country, two hours’ drive from the US border and a few hours’ drive to Vancouver which has been voted one of the best cities in the world.

Lake Country is situated between three stunning lakes surrounded by beautiful mountains providing waterfront living and watersports at their best. Lake Country is in the heart of the Okanagan Valley home to Lake Okanagan, a 100mile long lake. The Okanagan is consistently voted one of the best places to live in Canada. The Okanagan Valley has a rare combination of long, warm summers (35C/95F+) along with relatively mild winters; this affords an unusual combination of local world-class wineries (yes, really! – Canada does wine and does it well!) alongside two world-class ski resorts within one hour’s drive! All this in addition to the stunning scenery and boundless opportunities for outdoor pursuits for which British Columbia is so well known!

The work bit!:

Tri Lake has been serving the Okanagan Valley and beyond for over 35 years and houses expanding specialty services including surgery, rehabilitation and dermatology along with a bustling general practice. Our caseload is rapidly rising thanks to referrals from throughout BC and a sustained increase in population within our referral area.

We have an opportunity for a board-certified internal medicine specialist or board-eligible internal medicine clinician (ACVIM or ECVIM) to join our team – join us to make our internal medicine service whatever you want it to be with proven potential for rapid and sustained growth!

More about the lifestyle!:

Lake Country is 20 minutes north of Kelowna which is a vibrant city and provides rich options including mainstream and boutique shops, boundless coffee shops, abundant nightlife, various entertainment venues and a large variety of eateries.

Kelowna International Airport is less than a 10 minute drive from Lake Country and has direct flights throughout North America, Central America and further afield such as Hawaii and the Caribbean; transatlantic flights are due to become available in the near future…

Kelowna is variously known as “where Canadians go for their holiday” and “Kelownifornia” – come and find out why…

Once you move to the Okanagan, you’ll never want to leave!

All of the above is evidenced by Kelowna being the fastest growing city in BC!
