How Locums Work

The MLTP will on adequate notice supply locum tenens physicians who are suitably qualified to fill family practice rural physician’s vacancies. Exact timing will be dependent on locum availability. Locums are ordinarily allocated between 5 and 28 days.

The operation of the program requires contractual agreements between the various parties involved.

Processes

Recruiter Registration

The MLTP is designed to provide support to rural and remote Manitoba communities with four (4) or fewer permanent physicians to obtain locum coverage so resident physicians may take time off for vacation or CME leave with the assurance that their patients will have continued medical care.
