Jose Jota, MD

Hey, nothing’s impossible. I’m from the Philippines and am now working in Nova Scotia. If you want a strong team beside you to guide you in finding a job in Canada, then CanAm is what you’re looking for! After submitting my application, I got an email in 2 days with a possiblity for a job opening. I had a difficult visa situation but CanAm with John Philpott at the helm as well as their affiliate immigration specialists led by Ravi Jain (Green and Spiegel) got the job done. When push came to shove these guys did not back down and worked with me and my family to get us to Nova Scotia, took care of us when we arrived, and helped us settle down soon afterward. You would think they’d be done after that but no, another partner (D Marc Telfry), who with John was nice enough to welcome us at the airport, even showed up at my clinic a month after to check and see how me and my family were doing. How’s that for personalized service? That’s the CanAm advantage! Let’s see if any other recruitment group can top that. Thanks again to John Philpott and CanAm. PS: Thanks for the shirt, John!

Family Physician (IMG)

To establish/start practice in Canada as IMG is next to impossible keeping in mind the constant change in policies. I must praise John Philpott and his team for their updated, indepth and extensive knowledge in the field. The level of professional commitment is par excellence.If you need sincere advice on your position you can count on CanAm. Keep the good work.

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.

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.

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

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+++

Patrick Omotoso., MD, FRCS(Ed), FCS(SA)

I recently relocated my family to Canada through Phil Jost and CanAm. He is an extraordinarily diligent, hard-working, consistent, highly reliable and dependable and profoundly knowledgable professional. These sterling qualities come to the fore in every aspect of Phil’s work and operation. He is extremely honest and pays utmost attention to details. He has an excellent, broad and deep knowledge of every aspect of the needs of a medical recruit and his family, including immigration, banking, accounting, real estate, schooling and lots more. He has a great network and links with highly skilled and helpful professionals in all of these highlighted areas that are necessary for settling into a new job and community. He was able to link us up with solid professionals in all these aspects to ease our relocation to Canada. I would recommend him mostly highly and without reservation to any potential physician or other recruit.

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

Tom Bronaugh, MD

Dr. A. Raveendran FRCS MRCGP CCFP

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.
