Attracting GPs

Successful recruitment of physicians for your community is an ongoing process that involves many integral components and a methodical, collaborative approach.

A recruitment process based on best-fit for the practice and the community has proven to result in long term retention of physicians to help maintain adequate supply in the area.

This section contains processes and tools to help you:

  • Identify GPs needed for your community.
  • Search for and screen candidates for best-fit.
  • Negotiate and finalize agreements.

Note: Some processes may take place at the same time. When recruiting international medical graduates and out of province candidates, pay special attention to the pre-assessment section in addition to the other sections under “Attracting GPs.”
