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 thank John for his efforts in recruiting physicians to St. John’s, NL. The main reason I accepted the job in St. John’s is the because of the great family atmosphere. I believe that John Philipottâ choice of his local agent Natalie Davis, could not be better. She was absolutely amazing. She managed to bond with my family immediately…and I mean at the airport arrival section! She took care of us like family (and this was what I was looking for). I had no problem after that to convince my wife that St. John’s was the place to be. I felt like she was my own personal manager. She accompanied me to the places I needed to be and paved the usually slow process of employment and registration with the different required agencies in record time. Natalie showed us around town and took my wife to the malls, shops, schools, parks, etc. In addition, she went the extra mile many times including taking my child on a play date and helped us with the purchase of our new home. She really was a great ambassador for St.John’s ; John Philipott is even greater for choosing her, because doing a great job might be tough but , to get someone else to do the same job takes outstanding skill and confidence . In reality this is what a manager is.

CanAm Recruiting has been great to work with from day one! I can alway rely on a quick response regarding my recruitment needs. We have recruited three full-time permanent physicians in a 6 month time period from CanAm, as well as one locum physician, all in different specialties. These physicians were very well qualified and have worked out nicely. Unlike other agencies, CanAm seems to really understand the recruitment process and builds a relationship with both the physician and the health authority. Such a relationship does not often exist in other agencies.

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 am a Family Physician from the UK and got interested in relocating to Ontario. Not to anybody’s surprise, the process of getting licensed by CPSO was so very complicated – requiring endless paperwork, finding a supervisor and satisfying many criteria. While I was hunting for jobs in Ontario, one morning, my wife accidentally came across Hedi Cameron’s ( of CamAm Physician Recruiting) details and I emailed her with my queries. She replied within minutes and that was the start and she kept her promptness, professionalism and courtesy all the way till I finally got the license. It was a particularly difficult journey for me as I required a clinical supervisor for a certain period and this really posed a stumbling block to the progress. Hedi was very prompt and efficient, she was on the phone with the college numerous times to clarify matters, also chasing behind the supervisors to keep the paperwork ready within target time. What impressed me particularly was that Hedi genuinely looked after my welfare as much as she cared for the employer all along the difficult and protracted journey. Never was there a time that she tried to cut corners just for the sake of finding me a place. We had to move between many employers in order to satisfy the College regarding the arrangements for my supervision at work. Hedi made herself available in the weekends and at unsocial hours as I had a tight schedule. She was very friendly, honest and I find her extremely knowledgeable in her field. She is outspoken, genuine and does not give false hopes. I was extremely lucky to have met Hedi Cameron and I am absolutely certain that without her in the scene, I would never have obtained my license from CPSO. I find Hedi Cameron one of the most efficient professionals that I have ever met and I would strongly recommend Hedi Cameron of CanAm Physician Recruiting to any physician who is considering relocating to Canada.

Mr. Philpott was referred by a family member whom he helped over 15 years ago land a great hospitalist job and help transition from USA to Canada. He is well-mannered, prompt and VERY knowledgeable. He took the time to guide me through the process and the requirements I need in order to practice in Canada.

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.
