RPAP uses several means to support community physician attraction and retention efforts:
- RPAP’s Community Recruitment Consultants (CRCs) are involved In supporting the development and enhancement of local physician attraction and retention (A&R) committees. This involvement includes participation in community engagement activities, such as the annual Rural Alberta Community Physician Attraction and Retention Conference.
- RPAP’s support for physician attraction and retention extends to providing grants for innovative programideas to promote the attraction and retention of rural physicians or for project ideas at the local level to encourage A&R.
- In addition, RPAP utilizes a physician newcomer contact process to support the integration ofnew physicians to Alberta.
An important aspect of the Rural Community Physician A&R Committees’ work is the effort to assist community physician attraction and retentiton committees with the work of integrating physicians and their families into the community.
