Physician Resources – Moratorium on waiver applications in specialties lifted

If a facility has applied for a waiver in its physician resource plan (PEM) for you, feel free to get in touch with Marilyn Gagnon-Huot, FMRQ Co-ordinator, Physician Resources, to find out about your situation. The Physician resource management committee for specialties (COGEMS) will be meeting in the second week of July to assess applications and make decisions. You may reach Ms Gagnon-Huot by calling 514-282-0256 or 1-800-465-0215, or emailing mgagnon@fmrq.qc.ca.
