Sessional Clinical ARP model

In a Sessional Clinical ARP, compensation is based on an hourly rate for the delivery of direct and indirect clinical services (i.e., program services) within an organized program to a defined patient group by a physician. The sessional model is intended for part-time participation by a physician up to an equivalent of two days per week on average over the fiscal year. This model primarily applies to small specialized Programs.
