Alternate Funding Plans

The 2000 and 2004 Physician Services Agreements between the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) together provide more than $225 million in new annual funding to support AHSC physicians.

AHSC AFP Template Agreement

The Academic Health Science Center (AHSC) Alternate Funding Plan (AFP) Template Agreement is intended to: 1) provide funding that recognizes the unique contributions of academic physicians; 2) increase the capacity of AHSCs to provide Clinical Services and Academic activities in an integrated manner; 3) improve the coordination and integration of the interests of the medical staff, teaching hospitals and universities; 4) facilitate the successful recruitment and retention of academic physicians; and 5) ensure that the funding reaches academic physicians in an open and transparent manner

TOHAMO receives AFP Funding and allocates these funds to departmental practice plans who participate in the AFP.  The departments include:  Anaesthesia, Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, Family Practice, Medical Imaging, Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, Psychiatry and Surgery.
