Come for networking, tips at the 2019 Rural Locum Forum

The 2019 Rural Locum Forum has something to offer everyone interested in rural locuming in BC. For those who are experienced locums, it offers the opportunity to network and connect with peers, colleagues, and medical leaders to share information and learnings. For physicians new to rural medicine or who are transitioning from full-time practice, it’s an opportunity to learn more about the joys and challenges of rural locuming, and to connect with those who are already experienced.

This year’s gathering – being held Friday, May 24 from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm in Nanaimo – will discuss a variety of topics relevant to rural locums, including:

  • RGPLP: How It Works
  • First Locum Toolkit
  • Program Support for Rural Locums

The fee for the forum ($75 for physicians, $25 for residents) includes a networking lunch with your colleagues.

Accredited for 4.0 Mainpro+ credits.
