Providing care for recent immigrants.

Canadian Family Physician, Fast Fact, June, 2012.

“The provinces with physicians reporting the highest proportions of those caring for recent immigrants are Saskatchewan (76.2%) and Manitoba (76.1%); proportions are lowest in Quebec (40.8%) and Newfoundland (43.7%). Comparing demographic characteristics of FPs and GPs who have recent immigrants as a considerable part of their patient population with the general population of FPs and GPs reveals that the first group is more likely to be female (43% vs 40% overall) and consists of slightly younger physicians (average age of 47.5 years vs 49.7 years overall).”
