Physician Relief Fund

The Relief Fund is designed to support physician coverage in situations when a rural physician leaves a community for a short period of time, such as taking additional medical training. A team of alternate care providers, including a PA, Nurse Practitioner and a midwife, will provide medical services to the community served by the Physician’s practice on an itinerant basis. The initiative is modelled on the current Manitoba Locum Tenens Program (MLTP), and is administered by the Department of Community Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, and the Northern Medical Unit (NMU).
