This position offers a Physiotherapist a highly dynamic caseload as in a small town you get to see a little of everything. The majority of the patient caseload is from outpatients and home health visits. As a member of the LIH healthcare team and the sole Physiotherapist, this position works independently and collaboratively providing physiotherapy services that include assessment, treatment planning and implementation, program planning, consultation, equipment prescription and education of clients and/or their caregivers.

There is flexibility in working four longer days per week rather than five shorter days. Other members of the rehab team include an Occupational Therapist from Merritt who provides regular service and a full time Rehabilitation Assistant to support rehab treatments and planning. Accommodation is available giving the Physiotherapist the opportunity to choose to live there.

Interior Health is strongly committed to staff development and encouraging growth. There are informal mentorship among Physiotherapists, education via in-services, and an educational funding via the employer.

Lillooet is an ‘adventure town’ where there is high enrollment and participation in hiking, fishing, mountain biking, kayaking and hunting. It is incredibly biodiverse with alpine areas and sagebrush valley bottoms.

If you value being in a smaller BC community with ample recreational opportunities and are a motivated Physiotherapist with a patient-centred approach to care, we would love to hear from you for this employment opening.
