Family Practice - Urban Locum Program - Greater Victoria Pilot (100-1991)

Reference Number
Closing Date

Are you interested in exploring longitudinal family practice in Urban Greater Victoria but not ready to commit long-term?

Do you want to try out different practice styles and different locations without having to search them out?

Do you want locum opportunities to come to you without having the hassles of having to set them up?

We are seeking physicians for an innovative locum program that will provide casual and short-term practice coverage to family physicians within the evolving Primary Care Networks (PCNs) in Greater Victoria. The program will reduce the hassles of coordinating locum coverage for both locums and clinics.

The new program offers locums flexibility to work short-term or last minute and to receive mentor support. Locums receive administrative support to coordinate placements and matching with physicians and clinics looking for your services, as well as paid orientation time, paid charting time, and length of service bonuses as applicable.

This is a unique opportunity for new graduates and experienced physicians who are considering longitudinal family practice in Urban Greater Victoria or looking for consistent work with no attachments.

Locums are paid $1175.80 per 8-hour day of service for the first 60 days, pro-rated for any partial day of service. The daily rate increases to $1275.80 from day one once locums complete 60 days of service (paid retroactively in a $6000 bonus). Calculation of the completion of 60 days of service will include both full days of service and any accumulated partial days of service (e.g., 55 full days of service and 10 half days of service).
