RGPLP - RGPLP - Locum Assignment (Filled)

Role and Facility Information

I am looking for a locum to cover this week in September while I take another week of paternity leave to be home with my wife and newborn son! My clinic is well run, modern, efficient and fun. The patients are wonderful and the staff are great. Hours are flexible and I'd love to establish an ongoing locum relationship for future vacancies. September is a great time to visit the Midway area: the outdoor scene is second to none.

I am happy to coordinate ER shifts (12hour) in Grand Forks, and you are welcome to see my inpatients if I have any... however the hospital is 30minutes away and this is 100% optional.

Please contact me with any questions or interest.

Dr. Jesse Thompson MD CCFP

*** As of April 1st 2018, the daily rate for Midway is $1,093. ***
