In addition to our regular recruitment needs, the NWT is looking for physicians ready and willing to work in the coming months as we manage Coronavirus. As a small system covering vast geography and vulnerable populations, we are fragile. If even a few of our physicians are unable to work due to illness or isolation, or our current locum pool becomes unavailable, we may rapidly need to call upon our colleagues in other parts of Canada to help us continue to deliver necessary medical services to residents of the NWT.
Of course, it is also a fantastic place to live and work, and with benefits such as paid travel and accommodation and competitive daily rates, you may just decide you want to keep coming back!
