Rural Specialist Locum Program

The Rural Specialist Locum program supports health authorities to recruit specialists in designated or eligible communities. The program pays the locum physician a guaranteed daily amount and travel time honorarium. Each host physician, through their health authority, must submit a request form to Rural Practice Programs, Ministry of Health, for consideration.

For information on eligibility for host and locum physicians, responsibilities, locum requests and payment see the Rural Specialist Locum Program Policy (PDF, 174KB).
