The RCF was established to assist RSA communities with recruiting
expenses where the difficulty in filling a vacancy is, or is expected to
be, especially severe and where the failure to fill the vacancy in a timely
manner would have a significant impact on the delivery of medical care
required by the health authority’s Physician Supply Plan.
The funds may be used for the following purposes:
- Health authorities may use the funds to cover recruiting expenses
(i.e. advertising and interview visits).
- Physicians may use the funds to cover relocation expenses.
- Physicians recruited to fill a vacancy or pending vacancy in an RSA community.
- Physicians must be recruited from outside an RSA community.
