Locum Opportunities

The Nanaimo Division of Family Practice has developed a Nanaimo Locum Needs List. The list centralizes multiple locum opportunities in Nanaimo and surrounding communities.

Benefits of the Locum Needs List:

  • Access to multiple locum opportunities in Nanaimo and Central Vancouver Island
  • Made for locums – developed by locums
  • No need to provide your email to multiple physicians and clinics 

Clinics: 

  • Hassle-free advertising – no charge 
  • A platform for multiple locums to see your opportunities at one time
  • Updated regularly so you can send in new opportunities when you have time
  • 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 Need List, please contact us by email or phone at 250-591-1200.

“I love Nanaimo, it is the best-kept secret on Vancouver Island –I have the best job in the world!”  Dr. Chris Collins

Nanaimo is commonly spoken of as a destination location for Vancouver Island tourism but why not make it your home to stay?

Our medical community has a variety of family practice and locum opportunities available! Clinic vacancies range from small family-run establishments to extensive complex care teaching facilities. Walk-in clinics, hospital shifts, or weekends off! Full-time, part-time, or locum shifts available - it is up to you!

Come ​for a visit to Nanaimo, and let yourself and your family decide if you ever want to leave!
