Seeking a Full-Time Optometrist to Join our Practices in Banff & Canmore

FYidoctors Banff & Canmore Suite 101, 220 Bear Street


Job Type: Full Time

Are you looking for a great opportunity in a rural practice? We have an immediate need for a full time Optometrist to join the current ODs at our practices in Canmore and Banff, Alberta.


Join our practices in these two towns in Southern Alberta, known as the Bow Valley, with the opportunity to grow your practice next door to beautiful Banff National Park. These practices are positioned to grow! We are looking for an individual to join our team, who enjoys private practice and is interested in providing complete services to the patients in this area. Our Canmore Clinic is located right on Main Street with a large walk-in population. Banff is located on Bear Street and is the only Optometrist in town. Both clinics have a well-stocked dispensary. The Canmore location is equipped with diagnostic equipment that include: Zeiss OCT, Optomap, and Visual fields. As we grow, we continue to add further diagnostic equipment to support the ODs in these locations.


Banff and Canmore are both within a stone's throw from Banff National Park, and a gateway to the outdoors for many summer and winter activities, including hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, skiing, and cycling. Both towns have populations of approximately 10,000/14,000 people, however, the draw into these communities are in excess of 35,000 combined.


Rural practices offer loyal patients and allow for Optometrists to see a varied population of patients, including those that need management of ocular disease (like glaucoma and diabetes), trauma, and patient care not always readily seen in patients seen in a larger center. The scope of practice in Alberta allows for good remuneration for management of disease and full-scope care, versus other provinces. Calgary is about an hour away from both offices. Our FYidoctors practices in these larger centers offer support to our ODs in both of these locations, to help with day-to-day practice and coverage for holidays.
