CIRD Update
Trevor Barnes and Laurie Walters from the Central Interior Rural Division (CIRD) of Family Practice provided an update to the Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District (CCRHD) Board on their recent projects and successes. The CIRD works to recruit and retain medical professionals in the Central and South Cariboo.
Recently, the CIRD developed physician recruitment videos and created a financial calculator for prospective medical professionals to evaluate their financial situation if they moved to the Cariboo versus other regions. They also launched a locum program this year which has been very successful and well-received. Over the last year, the CIRD has welcomed an Internist and a Child Psychiatrist to Williams Lake. They also have four International Medical Graduates coming to the region by January 2017.
Trevor and Laurie also gave an overview of the CIRD's new Tick Tock Find Us a Doc regional physician recruitment campaign. This campaign, which will be funded by community sponsors, is a pro-active initiative to recruit doctors to the Central and South Cariboo. The CCRHD is a partner in this campaign. More information about the CIRD and their recruitment campaign can be found on their website www.divisionsbc.ca/cird and Facebook page www.facebook.com/CentralInteriorRuralDivision/.
