Any members of the practitioner staff requesting a copy of the review may contact Steve Chard ( in Practitioner Staff Affairs to request a copy of the report via email.

Specialist Selection Work Standard

The Work Standard for the Specialist Selection Process was developed to help guide the region’s physician leaders and administrative dyad partners in promoting consistent practice in recruiting and retaining physicians within the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region (RQHR).

A standardized process improves the reliability of the specialist selection process, provides credibility to the successful candidate and provides a consistent process that can be reproduced.

It is important for RQHR to recruit the right physicians the first time to maintain a work environment that maximizes the contributions of the organization as a whole.
