Supervisors for Provisionally Licensed Physicians

The Supervisors of Provisionally Licensed Physicians Program provides compensation to supervising physicians who are assigned by a health authority to assess the knowledge, competencies, and clinical skills of provisionally licensed physicians who reside and practice in Rural Practice Subsidiary Agreement (RSA) communities.

Programs objectives:

  • To help alleviate the financial and related burdens experienced by physicians who travel and/or forego their own practice time to provide supervision to provisionally licensed, rural physicians.
  • To assist health authorities in recruiting and retaining physicians, including provisionally licensed physicians, in rural B.C. communities.
