The Canam team seems to have a very good grasp of what it takes to get IMGs practising in Canada. The staff are hands on and are well placed to advise on steps required to eliminate any deficits capable of making it difficult to get employment as a physician in Canada. The assessment fee is well worth it.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to John Philpott and his team for establishing a recruiting firm that has helped numerous physicians navigate the complexity of Medical licensure in Canada. I practice in a rural demographic where IMG’s are a crucial element in ensuring an adequate physician supply. John’s team have the experience and expertise that have allowed many of my colleagues to attain licensure and settle comfortably into the Canadian medical milieu. The attention to detail,a personal touch and close follow up are a testimony to the high standards that John Philpott has set as a foundation of his company. I would advise any physician wishing to set up practice in Canada to take full advantage of this outstanding firm. You will not be disappointed.

Tharsan Sivakumar, MD, MPH

Phil Jost – Having recently graduated from post-graduate residency and fellowship training in the United States, I was not looking forward to the arduous task of applying for medical licensure nor the challenging necessity of seeking employment in my specialty in Canada. I initially pursued these endeavours independently but soon became frustrated with the number of administrative and other hurdles I faced. When I contacted CanAm Physician Recruiting, I was pleasantly surprised with the promptness of their response (I received a phone call the same day), and with the eagerness of the staff to assist me. The advisor with whom I spoke referred me to you (Phil Jost) stating your expertise in obtaining positions in New Brunswick and surrounding areas. I wished to express my heartfelt gratitude for your assistance with both finding an ideal position for me , as well as your advice and help in procuring my New Brunswick medical license. In these regards, I found you to be attentive to my particular needs and extremely resourceful as well. I also believe you went beyond the call of duty to ensure my smooth transition to licensure, as well as in assisting me find an ideal practice setting within one day of my initial contact with you. Thank you again for your help, and please note that in addition to using your services in the future as needed, I will highly recommend you personally as well as CanAm Physician Recruiting to colleagues seeking practice opportunities in Canada.

I have nothing but good words to say about the CanAm team who provided excellent services above and beyond my expectations. CanAm is very professional and transparent and I would recommend them to any of my colleagues. I am an international medical graduate and CanAm has accommodated my family and I, and I am very thankful for their services. They treated us as family and they are the best recruiters.

Dr. Bikash Chowdhury

Mr. John Philpott spent hours with me on the telephone to explain the pros and cons of international and Canadian medical licensure. The information was of enormous value to me to plan my future Canadian medical practice career strategy. He responded quickly after my initial registration and clearified my options in Canada. I am very impressed with CanAm’s services. I strongly believe no other agency could provide such reliable information.

I am a Neurologist who has recently relocated from West Virginia (USA) to Toronto Canada. I want to especially thank my recruiter Hedi Cameron, CanAm Physician Recruiting, who helped me through this move. Getting credentialed through CPSO (College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario) was a long process requiring a lot of patience. Hedi was very helpful and informative during this period. Hedi was a delight to work with. She was professional, responsive and exhibited a great deal of attention to detail. She responded to my calls promptly. She not only helped me in getting licensed, but also went the extra mile to help me with my immigration paper work, fiinding a residence and other related matters. I want to express my deep appreciation and admiration for her highly efficient, professional, and personable help. I would strongly recommend Hedi of CanAm as a physician recruiter for anybody who is planning to move to Canada. Samina Kazmi, MD

Dr. Kormos

I have to say that it was worth dealing with all the paperwork to get the Sask License. The last 7 weeks was fantastic. I have sooooo many great pictures that it is difficult to make a photo album without making it boringly long. I am on call now, so I am not travelling anywhere this weekend, but I drove more than 7000 km in the area already. The Rockies are amazing, the local flora and fauna is wonderful, fishing is great. Two days ago I caught a pike weighing 6 pound seven ounces in addition to a 2 pound walleye, a couple weeks earlier another walleye and a few perches, so I did not have any difficulty supplying my kitchen with fish. The job was pleasant, with the exception of one bad weekend I never felt tired. I would not mind coming back here if they happen to need locum services in the future. I plan on staying in Cyprus till about mid December, but plans do change.

IMG working in USA

Very impressed with the service at CanAm Physician Recruiting. I was in a very difficult job situation (and visa situation) and John Philpott helped me to get a job in a few days in Nova Scotia. I had million other questions besides the job (visa, insurance, who to call..) and John was always available, and give me the info in a timely manner (within hours!). I never experienced similar exceptional service before with any of the job recruiter agencies in the US. I would rate him as AAA+++

From the moment I contacted Canam I received expert, knowledgeable advice and ongoing professional, proactive support that resulted in a smooth transition to my new physician practice in Newfoundland. The guidance I received from CanAm got results in a much shorter time, and with fewer of the worry and hassles experienced by many of my colleagues who didn’t have the CanAm advantage. I am very happy with my choice of CanAm and highly recommend their services to any physician seeking the opportunity to work in Canada.

Dr. Fayyaz Khan

Its a pleasure to discuss the professional and personal merit of CanAm Physician Recruiting, Inc. I have known them for more than 6 years. I came to Canada from Australia in 2004 and I had the worst experience of my life as the recruiting firm that I was dealing with didn’t know the licensing of physicians in Canada. But thankfully my CV was represented by Mr John (CanAm)and my career got on the right path. The professional approach of CanAm is in my opinion the BEST in Canada. Their dealing with physicians is excellent, in true words they are the people who know the criteria to be licensed in Canada for a physician who is not trained here in this country. Keep up the good work guys. FayyazKhan,MD. Staff Anaesthesiologist &B.P.H.C.C.

Michael Howlett, MD CCFP(EM), Clinical Head Department of Emergency Medicine

Our Department recently underwent a major transition with the opening of a new ED structure, a new Medical School, implementation of a new academic funding plan, and significant augmentation of clinical staff. We have been successful in recruiting over a dozen new emergency physicians, several of whom were direct referrals from Mr. Jost and CanAm. CanAm services have been exemplary through an approach that involves extensive research, careful matching of clients and physicians, an intimate knowledge of the health care industry both locally and internationally, and a work ethic that simply does not quit. I have found Mr. Jost to be forthright, professional, and reliable, an excellent communicator, and willing to adapt to our needs and requests. Our new physicians hired through his services have fit in extremely well on the medical, interpersonal and family life fronts, and are among the best in the field. I certainly would recommend the services of CanAm Physician Recruiting Inc., and Mr. Phil Jost without reservation.

Tatiana Slivko. MD, CCFP

It is my great pleasure to provide this professional reference for Mr. Phil Jost of CanAm Physician Recruiting. I can confidently say that if it were not for the extraordinary efforts of Phil, I and my family would never have even considered PEI as a career destination. Phil’s careful research of my specific professional and family needs, and his ability to find the ideal job match was exemplary. I contribute our family’s success to his sincerity, a sound knowledge of all aspects of the Canadian healthcare system, boundless energy, a seemingly endless network of colleagues that enable him to find a solution for almost any problem, and a willingness to adapt to our needs â no matter what time of the day. Through his efforts our immigration, licensing, contract negotiations, legal advice, banking, and real estate needs were all resolved efficiently and effectively. He also proved that he can go the extra, extra mile by ensuring that my son was able to apply and get accepted to the business program at the provincial college, and even arranging for a snow plow to clear my driveway during an early snowstorm. If you are considering a medical career in Canada, and simply want the very best – someone who is a true professional with integrity, energy, intelligence, has an in-depth knowledge of the industry, and is an expert solutions provider, it is without any hesitation that I recommend that you contact Phil Jost and the CanAm team.
