Dear Family Health Team,
The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care has announced that applications for employment supports for Ontario’s 2012 Physician Assistant (PA) graduates are now available. Please see the attached documents for further information.
Opportunities for 2012 Ontario PA graduates will be supported in high priority settings where the focus will be on meeting the goals of the ministry’s Action Plan for Health Care. Consideration will be given to employers who are able to demonstrate how the integration of a PA in their setting will support the priorities of the Action Plan (e.g. chronic disease management and prevention, seniors care, increased access to health services, etc).
In order to receive financial supports, eligible FHTs must confirm full-time employment of a 2012 PA graduate by October 31, 2012. Graduates from McMaster University must begin work by November 15, 2012, and graduates from the Consortium Program (The University of Toronto/The Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences/The Northern Ontario School of Medicine) must begin by January 31, 2012.
Please note that applications are due by 5 P.M. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15TH, 2012
Should your Family Health Team wish to submit an application please email a completed FHT application and job posting to FHTINQUIRIES.MOH@ONTARIO.CA.
