New Rural Programs Guide available, updates to RCME and rural locum provisions

TheĀ  Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues (JSC) issued a new version of the Rural Programs Guide on April 1, 2018. The latest guide reflects updates to Rural Continuing Medical Education benefits, as well as changes to the rates for locums participating in the Rural GP Locum Program, the Rural GP Anesthesia Locum Program, and the Rural Specialist Locum Program.

Download an online version of the guide on the Doctors of BC website, or pick up a print copy of the guide in Nanaimo at either the Rural Locum Forum or the BC Rural Health Conference (May 11-13). Representatives will be available at the BC Rural Health Conference to discuss the updates – visit the JSC’s booth at the conference and bring your questions!
