The Nova Scotia Health Authority has launched a new doctor recruitment website.
The health authority says the site will provide an enhanced visual sales pitch about what makes Nova Scotia a great place to practice medicine and a great place to live.
It will also aim to make it easier for physicians and specialists to see what opportunities are available in the province or express interest in future opportunities.
Health Minister Randy Delorey says a key element of recruiting health care providers is showing what our communities have to offer, from employment opportunities to social and cultural experiences.
The site also includes contact information for local physicians in each zone who act as recruitment officers.
The site was developed using feedback from physicians about their decisions to work and live in Nova Scotia.
