Physician Locum Services® (PLS) Job Board

Use the PLS Job Board (an Alberta Medical Association member benefit) to find a locum physician or to post your availability for a locum position. You will also be able to list more general opportunities for employment on this board. Locum coverage opportunities listed on the PLS Job Board are generally not eligible under the AMA Physician Locum Services program; in most cases, these listings are private locum opportunities.

Please contact AMA Physician Locum Services staff to access the list of PLS family/general practice and specialist locum opportunities, or to apply to work as a PLS locum physician. More information is available on the Locum physicians page.

Important notes

  • The AMA does not screen physicians who list with this service.
  • The physician hiring the locum/associate is responsible for seeking references and taking the necessary steps to determine the suitability of the locum/associate for the particular practice.
  • It is a contravention of the Alberta Human Rights Act to discriminate against an individual with respect to employment on the following grounds: ancestry, age, color, family status, gender, gender expression, gender identity, marital status, mental disability, physical disability, place of origin, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or source of income.
  • In addition to areas and grounds discussed above, the Act protects Albertans in the area of equal pay. When employees of any gender (female, male, transgender or two-spirited) perform the same or substantially similar work, they must be paid the same rate. 
  • In preparation for providing private locum coverage, you may wish to review the CMA Practice Management modules.

AMA members may also request postings by email, phone, fax or mail. Contact:
