Yukon Locum Opportunities

Interested in Yukon Locum Opportunites?

There are ongoing locum opportunites in the Yukon. We would like to facilitate a match between your locum interests and our physicians' needs. We have a short Locum Profile Questionnaire (pdf), that you can  complete and return to carly.cox@yukondoctors.ca. We will distribute to Yukon physicians on a private listserv and Yukon physicians seeking a locum can contact you directly in follow-up.

Office Locums - Locum Support Fund

The Locum Support Fund (LSF) is supported by a Contribution Agreement between the Yukon Medical Association (YMA) and the Yukon Government (YG). It provides finanical assistance to Yukon physicians for usual and reasonable locum physician expenses, to cover their office practices.

Please read the Locum Support Fund guidelines (pdf) carefully.

If any questions arise contact the Fund Manager for clarification before starting your locum.

Reimbursement of any expected and reasonable expenses is not guaranteed under this program. The locum physician and Yukon physician must negotiate which expenses will be reimbursed. Signing the Locum Contract Checklist indicates that both parties are in agreement with the terms.

Once your locum is completed please submit your eligible receipts and application form to the Fund Manager
