Since 1997, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia (CPSNS) has encouraged Dalhousie University post-graduate trainees, during their residency training, to provide locum tenens in areas of physician shortage in their province; and to assist post-graduate trainees in their career advancement. Effective October 14, 2005, the College amended its policy to include post-graduate trainees in other training facilities (medical schools) in Canada.
