Vancouver Aboriginal Health Society Clinic is located on the unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territory in Vancouver’s downtown eastside and is looking to grow their team. They are a full-scope family practice that is supported by a psychiatrist, mental health counsellor, elders, a dietician, a social worker, and a nurse who does blook work, immunizations, wound care, pap smear screening, and STI treatments. The clinic has 8 physicians working in the clinic and conducts appointments both virtually and in person. The clinic serves a predominantly urban Indigenous population, although not exclusively so. Many of the patients struggle with chronic illnesses (HIV, HCV, Diabetes, COPD) in the context of poverty, homelessness, substance use disorders, and mental health issues.
