Physician Recruitment & Retention

Physician Recruitment and Retention is a member-identified priority of the Nanaimo Division of Family Practice (NDoFP) in their Strategic Plan. 

With an unattached patient rate of 11% (11,880 residents) of Nanaimo's total population and over 25% of the family physicians planning to retire or leave practice by 2017, our primary care needs far exceed our family physician resources and we want you!
