Careers at ACFP

How We Work

Like many non-profit organizations, our staff carries out the mandate of the board. We are a small group of individuals who are dedicated and passionate about what we do. We are proud to promote the discipline of family medicine to advance excellence in health care for families and communities in Alberta.

Current Opportunities

Are you interested in working with a fast-paced, energized, passionate group of health care leaders? Do you want your work to mean something at the end of the day and contribute to the improvement of health care for Albertans? Do you want to enjoy going to work every day because your new-found camaraderie with your co-workers just can’t be replaced? If you answered yes to the above questions, then we may have the position for you.

We are looking to add two individuals to join our small-but-mighty staff team. You must be apt at multi-tasking, have strong communication skills and a keen eye for details, and work well in teams.

My name is Smitha Yaltho and I feel privileged to work as a family physician. Why? I believe that being a family physician has been the best job any physician can hope to have. I have personally grown in my own abilities and skill-sets with diverse opportunities in ambulatory practice, acute care and work in Facility Living.  Working in primary care has been exciting and has also afforded me tremendous opportunities for growth while still remaining stimulating in its complexity.  I believe that Family physicians are trusted partners in patient care –  every step of the way. 

Why are you volunteering to serve on this committee?
I currently have an interest in Physician Leadership and  trauma informed care.  I have served as a director with the Board of Directors with the Edmonton North PCN, Edmonton’s largest PCN. Thereafter, I have worked as the Director of Medical Services with CapitalCare (also based in Edmonton) for almost 6 years. It is my express wish that my contribution on the ACFP board of directors will highlight the excellence of family medicine that exists right here and now within the Alberta health care system. 

What about the ACFP’s work do you find most valuable?
Ability to highlight and further support the excellence of primary care right here in Alberta.
