Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to work as a physician in your province. Who should I contact first?

The first contact should be with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick (info@cpsnb.org) to inquire if you are eligible for medical licensure in the province. In general, any such inquiry would need to be accompanied by a current curriculum vitae (CV.)

If I want to apply for a position with your health authority, what should I do?

The first step is to submit your complete curriculum vitae (CV) with references to a physician recruitment office within Horizon.  Once the Clinical Head of your specialty has reviewed your CV, you will be notified if the Department is interested in you as a candidate.  If there are no openings in your specialty, your CV may be referred to another area in the province which may have current vacancies.

What type of licensure do I need to work as a family physician in Horizon Health Network?

In order for a family physician to set up a community based practice in our region, the physician must be eligible for a full unrestricted or defined license by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick http://www.cpsnb.org/

If I have a restricted license, may I work as a family physician in Horizon?

Does your hospital pay for foreign medical students who want to enroll in a Canadian residency program for a return of service?

Would you buy out a return of service contract to another province to employ me as a physician in your region?

A return of service agreement is between a specific physician and province. Horizon would not buy out such a contract from another province to employ a physician.
