- 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);

Physicians are increasingly attracted to practices that offer team-based care to their patients and allow them to consult with their peers. The size and scale of Nova Scotia allows for better connections across the health care system. Your practice of medicine and your life is richer here. Nova Scotia is more than medicine.
