RPAP | Health Workforce for Alberta supports AMA Physician Locum Services®, providing short-term locum service to rural physicians practising in communities with four or fewer physicians.

The Weekend Locum Program was initiated in 1995 to provide relief to ensure that weekend call for rural physicians was no greater than one in four weekends. A Senior’s Weekend Locum Program was added in 1999. Both programs are funded by the RPAP and administered by the Alberta Medical Association on its behalf.
