The Neurology Centre of Toronto (NCT) is seeking a full-time Physician Assistant (PA) to join our team. This is a unique opportunity to become part of an innovative practice centrally located in mid-town Toronto.
NCT has developed a novel clinical model leveraging the advantages and efficiencies of virtual care called the Virtual Rapid Access Clinics (VRACs). These specialized clinics have a focus in epilepsy, concussion, headache, medical cannabis and, soon to be launched, stroke care. The VRAC combines novel infrastructural approaches to virtual care; a team-based, multidisciplinary consultative model; and a unique online referral pathway that permits patients to be evaluated by specialist within one week from referral. This model is unique to Canada and offers the shortest time to referral to a neurologist in Ontario. The Physician Assistant plays an intricate role in this framework acting as the preliminary assessor for all patients in these clinics. This requires a keen interest in patient consultation, a dedicated work ethic and a desire to work directly with a supportive team headed by a qualified specialist neurologist.
