VRCI is a group of 29 radiologists providing Radiology and Nuclear Medicine services with multiple partner organizations in the Greater Victoria area, British Columbia, including Island Health, BC Cancer and West Coast Medical Imaging.

Our referral base exceeds 800,000 people, and we provide all the diagnostic imaging services for the greater Victoria area in British Columbia, Canada. This includes image interpretation and image guided interventional procedures at 6 Island Health sites, 2 private imaging facilities, and BCCA Victoria.

We are also an active teaching site for the UBC Island Medical Program, and occasionally host senior Radiology residents for one month community rotations.

Prospective radiologists should be comfortable providing a general radiologist level of interpretation in radiography, ultrasound, CT, and MRI.
Basic procedural competence in non-vascular image guided interventions is an asset, or a willingness to retrain in some of these skills on the job.

Scope of procedural skills expected of a general radiologist (some of these could be retrained on site):

  • Ultrasound guided biopsies and drainages
  • CT guided soft tissue biopsies and drainages.
  • CT guided lung biopsy
  • Basic MSK Fluoroscopic Interventions
  • Hysterosalpingograms
  • Basic GI Fluoroscopy

All successful candidates must have:

  • FRCPC Certification in Diagnostic Radiology
  • Eligible for full licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC

Work expectations:

  • Participation in after-hours call coverage (approximately 12 weekends per year and 20 weeknights per year)
  • 10 weeks annual vacation for associate members
  • Participation in a subset of multidisciplinary clinical rounds targeted to an area of subspecialty expertise.

Fellowship Training:

Candidates with subspecialty fellowship training are preferred, however experienced general radiology candidates without fellowship training may be considered. We are a growing group and will consider candidates with a wide variety of subspecialty training.

Areas of identified need in our practice:

  • Nuclear Medicine (only candidates dual FRCPC certified in both Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Radiology will be considered for a Nuclear Medicine role)
  • Chest Radiology
  • Breast Imaging
  • Neuroradiology
