“Similarities between GCMS and IMGs who have been licensed in Canada for at least 8 years were seen with respect to location, percentage who were FPs, plans to relocate and professional satisfaction. Significant differences occurred between Canadian graduates and those more recently licensed IMGs. Here there is a clear difference in work hours, location, future plans and satisfaction. As a group, they seem less settled and content in terms of their practice setting and career fulfillment.”
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.
