About This Opportunity

Nova Scotia Health is seeking expressions of interests for physicians to join the Central Zone Credentialing Committee. This is a 2-3 year commitment. The Credentialing Committee reviews and approves Credentialing applications, privileges and re-appointment applications and works as a subcommittee of the Health Authority Medical Advisory Committee (HAMAC). Specifically, the Credentialing Committee is looking for physicians that broadly represent the specialty demographic to ensure a diverse representation such as:

-    Physicians with Academic Roles
-    QE2/Dartmouth/Cobequid/Hants/Tri-Facilities based Physicians
-    Physicians with rural practice
-    Family Practice Physicians in the community


About the Credentialing Committee

  • There are four Credentialing Committees representing each of the four zones within Nova Scotia Health.
  • As a member appointed by the HAMAC and with the Zone Medical Executive Director acting as chair or the committee within each zone, the committee is in need of new members that broadly represent the medical staff specialty-based demographics of the zone.
  • The committee meets once a month (no meetings during summer) for 30-60 minutes


As a member of the Credentialing Committee you will:

  • Participate in monthly one-hour meetings
  • Review applications for Nova Scotia Health privileges (new applications/reappointments);
  • Review mediated resolutions arising out of the mediation processes outlined in the Medical By-Laws; (ad-hoc)
  • Be able to commit to role for three year term.

Central Zone: Halifax, Eastern Shore, and Windsor-West Hants

From the modern yet historic city of Halifax, to the rugged and wild Eastern Shore, this region of Nova Scotia is a compelling study of contrasts. The largest city east of Montreal, Halifax is the cosmopolitan centre, bursting with restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife. But just a short drive (or bike ride) out of the city, the allure of nature envelopes you. Imagine dinner and the theatre at night, surfing and hiking the next morning.
