|Orientation for New CAPP Physicians Deemed Eligible for Licensure|
In June 2006, the CAPP formally introduced a mandatory 5-day orientation program for new CAPP physicians before they begin their mentored practice.
The program, which is primarily funded by Health Canada, is intended to address a number of important aspects of medical practice in Nova Scotia.
The program will be held in the last week of September. Immediately afterward, new CAPP physicians will undertake site visits to communities in need of new family practitioners that have been identified by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness and the District Health Authorities.
Please be advised that the Health Canada funding for the CAPP New Physician Orientation Program has now ended. All successful CAPP candidates will be required to cover the costs of their hotel accommodations, evening meals, transportation and miscellaneous expenses while attending the program. Eligible expenses incurred for the subsequent practice site visits will be covered by the Nova Scotia Department of Health.
