Physician Opportunities


Our community offers many different opportunities for primary care physicians. Whether you prefer the large, bustling clinics that incorporate a variety of specialist, or the small, quaint clinics located on the outskirts of the city; Peterborough has it all.

The Family Health Team Model

In spring 2005, the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care announced Peterborough’s success to become a Family Health Team (FHT). Compared to other FHTs, we are in the unique position to have majority of primary care physicians practicing in one of our five Family Health Organizations (FHO).

Primary care physicians working within a FHO have access to allied health professionals that bolster the traditional family practice. These professionals include mental health clinicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistant, registered dietitians, registered nurses, and registered practical nurses.


Primary care physicians wishing to increase their annual compensation will see that the opportunities in Peterborough far surpass the average compensation of primary care physicians in other parts of the province.

More information can be found by visiting Health Force Ontario: Family Practice Model.
