“The 2013 National Physician Survey reveals that 6% of Canadian physicians consider themselves under-or unemployed in their chosen discipline (underemployed), but this percentage increases to 15% when looking specifically at surgeons. Who are these surgeons and how do their practices and perspectives differ from their colleagues?”
2013 National Physician Survey (NPS) results for all physicians are now available!
The 2013 NPS results for all physicians were released on October 23, 2013. The release provides the latest physician survey results at national, provincial and specialty specific levels.
The survey was available electronically to all physicians in Canada – close to 10,500 responses were received. The 2013 survey collected information on important trends in employment opportunities and challenges of physicians in Canada.

“As future physicians prepare for their careers, proper training may be key; however, some anxiety may also exist surrounding how they will go about actually finding jobs when the time comes. The 2012 National Physician Survey1 (NPS) asked medical residents and students about the various career counselling services they have used over the course of their training.”
