Registered Dietitian

Transforming lives and communities through excellence in care, discovery, and learning.

Metamed is a new internal medicine practice that will cater to patients seeking weight loss. We are looking for a qualified, compassionate, and energetic dietician who will grow with our business and be a team player. Our concept is to promote a healthy lifestyle with aggressive dietary intervention and coaching to help patients achieve their health-related goals. We will be offering in-person as well as virtual consultations to patients. Each consultation requires assessing eating habits, screening for eating disorders, assessing the lifestyle, and providing mindset coaching through acceptance commitment therapy.

This is a unique opportunity to work with an MD in establishing a new health and wellness center (metabolic clinic). The opportunity is entrepreneurial in nature, and a successful candidate can help formulate and shape a practice vision and lead an aggressive expansion plan across GTA and surrounding areas.

Lifestyle coaching through mindfulness and acceptance commitment therapy will be provided throughout the program to support and motivate the participating individuals. Ongoing training will be provided to the candidates by the supervising MD at the clinic regularly.

The applicant must be passionate about learning and collaborating with the physicians. Additional responsibilities may include creating content for online use, implementing pertinent medical directives, completing administrative responsibilities, supervising assigned personnel, conducting practice-based research, and performing other functions consistent with the job classification to ensure excellence in the provision of care and knowledge.
