Process & General Information:Once a physician shows interest in providing coverage in Thompson, their CV will need to be submitted for our head of surgery and CMO to review. If the applicant suits the requirements their CV is passed along to the Recruiter and Medical Services Coordinator. The administrative team will reach out to the physician and provide them all available dates. Once a start date is decided on, the privileging package will be sent to the physician.
The region offers on-call and off-call locums in Thompson, as Thompson needs two surgeons to maintain an adequate service. There is a requirement of minimum 7 days for on call locums and a minimum of 5 days of coverage for surgeons not on call. However, the region does offer 2 or more weeks of locum coverage as well.
Locum surgeons provide elective surgeries, clinic coverage, emergent surgeries, and consults in the ER
Remuneration:Our remuneration arrangement is as follows. There is a daily stipend of $1200/weekday shift and $2000/weekend shift. If the surgeon provides on call coverage a stipend of $595.94/day is paid. The region also pays a travel stipend of up to $1000 per locum visit, dependent on where the physician is travelling from. The surgeon is also able to bill FFS for any after hour procedures performed.
