Family physicians (including those who work as hospitalists, within a Primary Maternity Care service, within hourly and sessional arrangements and emergency departments), regional and community specialists who serve as preceptors or assessors will earn an annual retainer of $5,000, plus a 5% premium on fee-for-service billings. In addition, the current daily teaching stipends ($90 per day) may be billed when working with a learner. Here are the details:
- $5,000 in annual funding, now payable to Dalhousie-approved preceptors (logistics and timing of this payment are still being sorted out).
- Note that the 5% on billings when working with a learner does not take effect until Sept. 15, 2023.
- Physicians working in the fee-for-service academic departments and divisions are now eligible to bill the $90/day stipends as outlined in the March 19, 2021, MSI bulletin (page 5)
System partners have committed to work with DNS in fall 2023 to review those stipend values.
