By the Establishment

Expenses paid by the establishment (excluded from the agreement)

2010-07-22_Carte_du_Quebec.jpgA little over 10 years ago, the MHSS set up a program of pre‑doctoral and postgraduate training rotations. The purpose of the program is to permit the organization and performance of training rotations for medical students and residents in regions experiencing physician resource shortages, as designated by Ministerial Order 96-07 of November 28, 1996. Moreover, the government has in recent years agreed to fund rotations performed in other regions of Quebec.

The Ministry thus aims to:

  • foster recruitment by exposing future physicians to practice and life in the regions;
  • foster an academic atmosphere that will contribute to retaining physician resources by enhancing the quality of professional life and have a positive impact on quality of care;
  • enhance doctors' competency, particularly their clinical skills (case history, diagnostic examination, decision-making and judgment), by broadening the range of urban clinical experiences traditionally focussed on frequent use of high technology and faster access to highly specialized resources.

WHO IS THE PROGRAM INTENDED FOR?

2010-07-22_Cote-Nord2.jpgThis program must serve to pay the travel, accommodation and living expenses for mandatory rotations performed in the regions by residents registered in the following programs:

  • family medicine
  • anaesthesiology
  • general surgery
  • internal medicine
  • obstetrics/gynaecology
  • paediatrics
  • psychiatry

Residents performing rotations under the decentralized training program may not claim travel expenses from their association or the FMRQ.

GETTING REIMBURSED

Application has to be made to the establishment where the rotation is performed. The establishment has to pay you before the end of your rotation.

2010-07-22_Nord-du-Quebec.jpgIn addition, in about October, establishments are notified as to the budgets granted to them for reimbursement of travel, accommodation and living expenses. While the Federation does not endorse this practice, a number of establishments wait until they have their budgets before paying residents. If you are in that situation, it is essential that you apply for reimbursement before leaving the establishment and that you make sure the establishment knows how to get in touch with you (address and telephone number).

If you did not receive what you were supposed to, you must contact the establishment where you performed the rotation. If you are unsuccessful, please contact Marie-Anik Laplante, the FMRQ's union affairs co‑ordinator, at (514) 282-0256 or 1-800-465-0215.

FOR RESIDENTS PERFORMING ROTATIONS NOT COVERED BY THE PROGRAM

Please note that, if the rotation performed is not covered by the MHSS decentralized training program, it may be covered under the FMRQ's collective agreement (provided it takes place in Quebec). In that case, it will be necessary to apply for reimbursement to the Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec.
