Come on rural Alberta—show us how it’s done!  RPAP | Health Workforce for Alberta is pleased to announce a call for proposals for rural Alberta communities, with or without community physician attraction and retention committees in place, to host the 2016 RPAP Rural Alberta Physician Attraction and Retention Conference

The CPAR conference is an opportunity for representatives of rural community physician attraction and retention committees, as well as interested community members from around Alberta, to come together and share experiences, learn about new initiatives and discuss best practices related to physician attraction, retention and recruitment.

The 2016 conference will be held in a Central Alberta community on either September 29-30, 2016 or October 13-14, 2016 (both are Tuesday & Wednesday).

As a community interested in hosting, it is asked that you please consider and explain why your community would be a good place to hold the 2016 Conference:

Maybe your community has gone above and beyond, successfully attracting and retaining physicians from Canada and around the globe?  Perhaps you live in unique geographic setting, or your community has first class facilities you would like to show your fellow Albertans?

To view the Call For Proposal Document in its entirety, please visit www.rpap.ab.ca/CFP2016

Please submit your application covering the information above by November 1, 2015 to recruitmentconsultants@rpap.ab.ca.

A decision will be made by December 1, 2015, and all applicants notified the week thereof.

If you have any questions relating to this event, please contact Rebekah Seidel at rebekah.seidel@rpap.ab.ca or 780-423-9911 ext. 117.
