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

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.

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.

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.

Leszek Swica MD, FRCPSC

My name is Leszek Swica, I am Canadian trained and Royal College certified anesthesiologist. Following completion of my residency training at the Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia I worked for 13 years at the Aberdeen Regional Hospital in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. In November 2011 administration cancelled the local anesthesia contract agreement and I decided to look for another place of employment. Following recommendation of my anesthesia colleague I contacted Mr. John Philpott from CanAm Physician Recruiting. In his recruitment effort Mr. Philpott was looking for the place that would match my training, work experience, carrier goals and would also give me financial stability. He identified a vacant position at the Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current, Saskatchewan which was not advertised in medical journals or recruitment web sites. Mr. Philpott was very efficient in his search and brought to my attention the fact that there was another strong candidate looking seriously at this place. Following his advice I went ASAP for the site visit in Swift Current. I received the job offer and I signed my present contract agreement at the time of that site visit in March 2012. Thanks to Mr. Philpott I found a great place to work and live. The Cypress Regional Hospital has a very professional work environment and friendly relations between OR staff and members of other departments. Physicians are very well looks after and enjoy good working relations with the local administration. The Cypress Health Region has the Family Medicine training programme affiliated with the University of Saskatchewan. As a preceptor of the residents having anesthesia rotations I was appointed a Clinical Assistant Professor at the College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan. I find my teaching activities to be very exciting, professionally stimulating and refreshing. Town of Swift Current has a population size, life style and all amenities very similar to Pictou County in Nova Scotia where I lived and worked until April 2012. Province of Saskatchewan has a strong and booming economy. Saskatchewan Medical Association enjoys very good working contacts with the provincial government and is able to negotiate good working conditions and competitive income for its members. It is my great pleasure to write about this positive experience and I can highly and without hesitation recommend Mr. John Phipott and CanAm Physician Recruiting. He is very professional and honest. He is also very efficient and his recruitment objectives are

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.

Dr. Babar M Hameed

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.

KHALDOON ALJERIAN

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.
