Canada’s future physicians make choices to ensure personal – professional life balance
Data released today from the medical student and resident component of the 2010 National Physician Survey (NPS) shows Canada’s future physicians want to work smarter to meet the growing and increasingly complex health care needs of Canadians.
Canadian Collaborative Centre for Physician Resources, September, 2011.
“The 2010 results showed that less than 1% of physician respondents indicated that physician assistants were among the three main health care providers that they regularly referred patients to and/or collaborated with. Of these physicians, 73% were family physicians and the remainder from other specialty disciplines.”
