Virtual Exhibit Hall


PracticeNWTPracticeNWT is here to attract health and social services professionals, including allied health professionals, midwives, nurses, physicians, and social workers, to the many outstanding career and lifestyle opportunities available in the Northwest Territories.

Our Internists have a fulfilling general practice working out of the Stanton Territorial Hospital in the capital city of Yellowknife. We offer unique 1, 2, and 3 year salaried contracts for Internal Medicine Physician Specialists. Our Internists travel throughout the NWT and the Kitikmeot region of Nunavut on vital travel clinics allowing you to experience the indigenous cultures of Dene, Inuit, and Metis.

Located above the 60th parallel, the Northwest Territories awaits with seemingly endless lakes and unmatched vistas. The opportunities available in these communities are perfect for the outdoors enthusiast looking for adventure and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, with some of the shortest commutes in Canada – often no more than five to ten minutes walking, biking, or driving. Physicians will find everything they, and their entire family will need here in the Northwest Territories!

On the shores of Great Slave Lake lies the city of Yellowknife (population 21,000). The ‘urban’ centre of the territory, the Northwest Territories’ capital city boasts all the amenities of a big city, while maintaining its small town charm. Whether you want to catch the latest movies, enjoy delicious dining opportunities ranging from Korean to Ethiopian to Japanese food, get in some shopping, or explore the surrounding wilderness just minutes away, Yellowknife has you covered.

Live, Work, Expand your Opportunities in a Territory like no other.
