Testimonials

Mohammad H Ghafari

I was impressed by the time and effort John Philpott of CanAm Physician Recruiting generously spent on giving the information and describing my options for practicing in Canada. After attaining their assessment, I am very optimistic that I have come to the right place in order to get integrated to the medical system in Canada. Thank you.

I have found CanAm Recruiting real experts in the field of matching good jobs with excellent candidates. John Philpott is a true professional. One will find he has a true interest in the client/candidate finding the appropriate match and all the accompanying contacts to make a smooth transition possible.

Tawfiq ZeidanSchwiri, MD, Cardiology

I met Phil Jost from CanAm Physician Recruiting during a Canada wide job search for a staff cardiologist position. An initial telephone conversation introduced us to a polite, well-mannered gentleman willing to help and guide me on our journey of securing a post as an International Medical Graduate (IMG). Phil proved to be anything but a typical recruitment consultant. He called, frequently followed up, and took the time to ask all the relevant questions in relation to our needs on both the professional and personal fronts. Phil’s skills and experience are exceptional, and he was very helpful in initially refining our job search by identifying the best and most appropriate hospitals, in the most suitable Canadian locations. His persistence, drive and dedication were remarkable, and of great help in emphasizing my unique skills and experience to his clients. His advice in preparing for the interview was also remarkable. He met me at the airport, and took care to discuss details of the position that ensured I was well prepared to perform in the interview. Once an offer for a job was made Phil contacted the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the province to ensure that my license to practice was issued on time.Phil guided us through the privilege documentation needed by the hospital and was accurate and precise in all details. After I started my new job, Phil again contacted us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Phil also organized for an immigration lawyer to arrange a work permit. He introduced us to realtors, mortgage brokers and other service providers required when you’re a foreign worker moving with a family. His guidance on the personal front was excellent. We bought a house in the suburb that was best for our family through a realtor he recommended, and with five months hindsight, it has proven an excellent choice. We couldn’t be happier. He remained in contact throughout our move. Recently we faced a new obstacle with our health insurance because of our status as foreign workers, and one call to Phil had it resolved within 24 hours (our health insurance was reinstated without a gap). During the time we have worked with Phil, he has always responded and returned our calls promptly, even while he was on vacation. His commitment, dedication and loyalty to his clients are exceptional. His knowledge of the Canadian Health Care System is extensive

The CanAm team clearly have the experience and expertise to assist physicians seeking licensure and employment in Canada. It is well known that Canada remains one of the more challenging countries for IMGs who are looking to practice, despite the country’s well known huge demand and shortage of qualified physicians. The route is paved with obstacles often deemed insurmountable. I am glad to say that my initial 2 hour long phone consultation with Mr Philpott, allowed me to elucidate some of these obstacles. The team offer a case based approach which is probably the most valuable aspect of the service they offer. The website offers a webinar, entitled ‘How to Practice in Canada’, which outlines the process. The cost of this was kindly waved in addition to the 2 hour phone consultation with John. The complexities of the process wouldn’t allow for a generic pathway. CanAM physician recruiting are clearly very knowledgeable and sufficiently resourceful to offer a tailored, individualised passage through the Canadian licensing labyrinth. I have no reservations in strongly recommending John Philpott and his team of experts to all International Medical graduates, and Canadian graduates alike, who have made the educated decision of wanting to practice their craft in Canada.

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+++

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.

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.

Firas Elias Douri, MD

I was recently referred to Mr. Phil Jost by a trusted physician colleague who highly recommended him as a knowledgeable professional capable of providing professional advice to help me find a successful career pathway to finally enter Canadian Family Medicine practice. Mr. Jost contacted me be telephone, carefully assessed my current career situation and was able to provide me with several options, both verbally and in writing, for me to follow to get my career back on track. Mr. Jost was indeed very professional, patient and knowledgeable and I found the information he provided to be very valuable when making my future career decisions. I truly wish I had contacted him before I left my home in Iraq to come to Canada, and I am sure I would have avoided many of the career obstacles that I have encountered since arriving in Canada in 2011. I highly recommend Mr. Jost’s counsel to any physician considering a move to Canada. Firas Elias Douri, 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.

“Dear Michelle, It was great experience working with you. After completing my training 2016, I had tried so many times to work in Canada. I must confess it was quite challenging and discouraging to integrate into the healthcare system in Canada as a foreign qualified physician. I finally gave up. Michelle, since I was introduced to you, it is unbelievable how easy the whole process became. Your advice and guidance throughout the process, from interview to physician job offer, CPSNL licensing process, and immigration process, was so helpful and very supportive. I would like to say a special thank you for being patient and supportive during the delay of my certificate of good standing and also for information and advice provided on the registration process for my wife. I am really grateful, thank you very much. You made it very easy and successful.”

Dr. Raid Abousriwiel

Michelle helped me all the way in my journey from offering me job in Canada to overcoming all obstacles during relocation to the new country. Michelle is very responsive and resourceful and such a great help on many aspects. I highly recommend Michelle for any physician looking to relocate to North America.
