Supervision of Physicians

Physicians issued a Defined licence in Nova Scotia are required to have oversight from both a supervisor and a sponsor for the duration of that licence. Physicians granted a Defined licence after January 1, 2015, must work towards full licensure, according to a pathway and timeline designated at the time of licensure.

The role of a supervisor is to monitor, assess, and support the supervised physician as they work towards full licensure. Supervisors play an important part in ensuring access to high-quality patient care for Nova Scotians.

The Supervision Handbook provides guidance to supervisors.
