Family Physicians -
The Eastern Zone of the Nova Scotia Health Authority has family practice opportunities in a number of communities within the Zone. These opportunities vary in scope of practice...

Calling Nova Scotia home means ocean views, active living, and welcoming communities. Practicing here means working with passionate colleagues, providing world class care, and helping people be healthy and stay healthy, for generations. The Nova Scotia Health Authority provides health services to Nova Scotians and some specialized services to Atlantic Canadians. We operate hospitals, health centres, and collaborative community-based programs across the province.

The Eastern Zone is supported by the two regional hospitals and a host of community hospitals and health centres. Specialty services are distributed among the two regional hospitals located in Sydney and Antigonish, serving a population of over 180,000 people with a network of over 330 physicians.

Located on the very Eastern point of Nova Scotia is the stunning scenery of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park where the road climbs along the edge of Nova Scotia and it is a regular occurrence to hike among moose in their habitat. The trail winds around some of the most breathtaking views, beaches, and golf courses in the province. Enjoy the port city of Sydney and see the World’s Largest Fiddle on the friendly waterfront boardwalk. Cape Breton Island (connected by a causeway to mainland Nova Scotia) is known for a music scene that has prompted international attention for its deep Celtic and Gaelic roots. Take in one of many summertime festivals and hear the best music from across the world and right here in the province.
