JSC funding available for training at Rural Locum Forum
The Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues (JSC) is pleased to announce funding for physicians who are providing – or considering to provide – locum services in rural BC communities to attend the Rural Locum Forum.
All physicians who currently provide locum services in rural BC and all physicians who are considering providing locum services in rural BC communities are encouraged to attend this conference and take advantage of these courses being provided on a no cost basis. You will find this training will foster the skills and knowledge necessary to confidently provide locum services in rural BC communities.
Registration now open!
Registration is now underway for our 2nd rural locum networking conference! It will be held on Saturday February 27 at the Vancouver Island Convention Centre in Nanaimo, BC. Several pre-conference courses are being offered on Thursday February 25 and Friday February 26 – register early to secure a spot for ACLS, BLS, The CARE Course or CASTED.
Not a rural locum yet? No problem. If you are a new physician grad or semi-retiree interested in becoming a rural locum, or if you are a non-physician in community that hosts rural locums frequently, we invite you to register as well.
The 2016 Rural Locum Forum will bring together rural BC locums, recent medical graduates, experienced physicians, and rural leaders to share experiences, case-based expertise, and ideas for innovation. Discover the advantages of rural locuming, enhance rural practice skills, and be part of an unique group of rural health professionals! We hope to see you there!
Target audience: Rural locums, rural family physicians, residents or physicians interested in becoming a rural locum
