    As one of two Senior Physician Recruitment Coordinators, Dom is responsible for sourcing and recruiting residents and practicing physicians to available opportunities across Prince Edward Island in family medicine, emergency medicine, and other specialty areas in collaboration with the Recruitment and Retention team and Chief Physician Recruiter. Dom is passionate about improving the health care system for the current, and future generations of Islanders.

    In his words, “Practicing medicine on the Island offers a whole other experience, one not seen within larger metropolitan centers. Physicians who practice here can truly get to know their patient compliment, connect with close knit communities, magnificent beaches, and our world renown hospitality.”

    Fun Fact: Dom’s favorite beach is Basin Head, names top beach in Canada, Basin Head is also known globally for its “singing sands” phenomenon. In addition, known as Canadas Food Island, he loves to take part in the many culinary festivals across Prince Edward Island.

    Alison McQuillan (she/her)

    Recruitment Assistant
    Recruitment & Retention Secretariat Department of Health and Wellness


    Alison McQuillan grew up in Vernon River, PEI, but began her career in Alberta where she lived for six years. She moved home in 2017 to raise her children here and be close to family.

    As the Province’s Recruitment Assistant, Alison is the first point of contact for physicians who reach out looking for opportunities on the Island or who are applying to a specific position. She coordinates site visits, interviews, recruitment conferences, and financial incentives. While she says recruitment is a long game and there are many steps to finding the right physician to offer care to fellow Islanders, it’s rewarding to be part of the process and help others discover all of the wonderful things about Prince Edward Island.

    In her words, “PEI has so much to offer within its welcoming communities. It’s a safe place to raise a family with excellent sporting programs and a lot of year-round activities to choose from. Within our healthcare system, we have amazing staff and great facilities to work in.”

    Fun Fact: Outside of the work she is passionate about, Alison can be found either coaching her two children in sports or enjoying PEI’s beaches in the summer. In the winter, she’s at the rink either playing hockey herself or watching her kids play.
