Through the lens of underemployed surgeons

Canadian Medical Association, November, 2013.

“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?”

Career counselling for Canada’s future physicians

Canadian Medical Association, April, 2013.

“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.”
