Demand for skilled physicians is high

The demand for physicians in Peterborough is high. An estimated 11,000 people in the region are without a family physician, and 20% of the population is at risk of not getting the healthcare services they need. The city, along with Peterborough County and the Peterborough Family Health Team (PFHT), is actively recruiting, which means skilled physicians seeking full-time, fulfilling work will find plenty of opportunities.


Working Here

Our practitioners have earned the reputation of providing both high-quality care and being innovators in the healthcare field. 

Mentorship opportunities

Queens University has collaborated with the Peterborough medical community to provide opportunities for medical students to learn in a real-world setting. The Queen’s Peterborough-Kawartha (PK) program allows residents to gain clinical experience in a variety of clinical settings such as the emergency department, palliative care unit/community team, and the Partners in Pregnancy Clinic.

Strong support system

Being part of Peterborough’s medical community comes with access to a strong support system. Peterborough is home to 90 family physicians and 400 physicians overall.

The medical community provides physicians with a variety of Continuing Medical Education opportunities to enhance knowledge, which keeps primary care providers current on best practices.

Urban Cottage Community

Ditch the commute and join the fastest growing city in Canada, for good reason! Peterborough offers a vibrant urban scene amidst a stunning natural setting.

Professionals are flocking to the area and our city is transforming before our eyes. This has made for exciting times both culturally and economically – but there is an elephant in the room: we are in desperate need of physicians.

Living Here

Peterborough Ontario, a 90-minute drive north-east of Toronto – has an urban-like community with a “slower pace and more space” way of living. You can enjoy the perks of a city balanced with cottage and country lifestyle.
