Island Health is warning the public of potential schemes targeting overseas health care professionals. The misleading postings are offering non-existent jobs within Island Health and state that in order to qualify, potential employees must pay fees for a medical exam and a two day contract orientation session or that they are offering to provide visas for applicants at Island Health. Please be advised that Island Health is not currently recruiting health care professionals from overseas and use caution when receiving any communications of this nature.
