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

John Philpott has provided an excellent service to my Institution in Rural Newfoundland with respect to the recruitment of Family Physicians/Specialists. John has an intimate appreciation of the Licensing Requirements, Immigration Protocols and local site nuances and he applies this knowledge to ensure an excellent Physician compatibility as well as judicious and well thought out support and back up plans. I would strongly recommend CanAm for all your Physician needs and would be happy to hear from you should any questions arise.ravalia@personainternet.com

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.

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.

“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.”

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

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.

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.

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.

Peter Stubbs MD, D.A.B.A

Throughout the process of returning to Ontario to practice medicine Hedi Cameron of CanAm Physician Recruiting was without a doubt the most professional, knowledgeable and compassionate person I have ever worked with. Hedi was available to offer insight, guidance and determination to succeed at every step. I can honestly say I would not have been successful if not for the hard work and skill Hedi demonstrated for myself and my family from the moment we were introduced. Thank you Hedi and CanAm for all your hard work, you have made a difference in my life and I will forever be in your debt. Peter

Dr. Tewogbola Ajisebutu, FRACGP, CCFP

At the time I made up my mind for a move to practice in Ontario, I first contacted Phil Jost who directed me to call Hedi Cameron who is in charge of Canam Recruiting operations in Ontario. I am glad he did because right from the time I gave Hedi a phone call about my plans to get registered in Ontario, she immediately got the ball rolling and made what was a difficult process an easy one. Hedi worked and guided me through the application which was quite demanding, by her numerous pieces of advice and tips through e-mails and phone calls. She never for once kept me waiting for answers to questions I raised during the process. E-mails were responded to and phone calls were promptly returned. While guiding me through the registrations with CPSO, she also helped me in looking for practices from which I eventually picked one. She stood by me up to the point of signing the contract with the owners of the practice I chose to work from. All through the process, Hedi was very professional and she demonstrated a deep knowledge of the issues involved in helping physicians get registered with the CPSO, relocate and practise in Ontario. It is without reservation that I recommend Hedi to any physician with plans to register and work in Ontario. Many thanks to you Hedi.
