New recruiting program will hire more physicians
The Northern Interior Rural Division of Family Practice (NIRDFP) is coming up with a new recruiting program to attract more nurses, physicians and other health care practitioners to northern rural and First Nations communities.
Recruitment Lead of NIRDFP Joy Davy wrote a letter to the Village of Burns Lake indicating recruitment for physicians and nurse practitioners is becoming more difficult as the pool of candidates becomes smaller.
The newly hired physicians and healthcare professionals can get personalized support from NIRDFP’s recruitment program, including city tours, relocation, planning, and house-hunting assistance. Also, enrollment assistance for childcare, schools, getting settled into the community and making connections and furnished apartments for short-term stays.
