“According to the CMA Masterfile (members and non-members), as of January 2012, there were 4,426 licensed psychiatrists in Canada. This number excludes residents but includes licensed non-clinicians. Psychiatry has a disproportionately large number of older physicians compared to most disciplines; over half (51%) are age 55 or older. This compares to 40% of all physicians of a like age.”
The National Physician Survey is produced by the CFPC, the CMA, and the Royal College. Our data is drawn from surveys sent to every licensed physician in Canada as well as to all Canadian medical residents and students.
