Locum Opportunities

The Nanaimo Division of Family Practice has developed a Nanaimo Locum Needs List centralizing multiple locum opportunities in Nanaimo.

Benefits of the Locum Needs List:

  • Access to multiple locum opportunities in Nanaimo
  • Made for locums – developed by locums
  • No need to provide various Physicians and clinics with your contact details

Clinics: 

  • Hassle-free advertising at no charge 
  • A platform for multiple locums to see your opportunities at one time
  • Updated regularly
  • Ability to post multiple listings for an entire year
  • Locums know locums – the more opportunities we have, the more locums we attract.

If you would like to receive the regular distribution or advertise an opportunity on the Nanaimo Locum Needs List, please contact us at 250-591-1200 or by email.
