Testimonials

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+++

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.

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

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

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 J. Singbo MBCHB, FCP(SA), Endo. Cert. (SA)

“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.”

That’s way more clever than I was expecting. Thanks!

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.

Dr. Brian Simchison, CD, BA, MD, FRCPC

Michelle: You will recall that I responded to an urgent request for an anesthesia locum in Gander, NL that was put out through Canam Recruiting last summer. After an initial conversation with John Philpott, I agreed to take on the job for the month of July. There was a short timeline to get licensure and privileges organized and I found your help invaluable in getting things done in order to start in Gander on July 2. Considering that this was a fast-track application for licensure in Newfoundland, the process was still quite labour intensive and time consuming and without your help in dealing with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador, I don’t think that we would have met the deadline to get me in place for that start date. You also followed up after my arrival to ensure that things were working out. As it turned out, the month in Gander worked out remarkably well. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and was able to do some travelling in the vicinity and enjoy the many delights of that part of Newfoundland. Thank you for your help in making it all possible.

Dr. Aousi

I am very glad that I took this step and consult the CanAm team, after this consultation and reviewing the webinar, it became very clear to me what are my options as IMG in Canada. Mr. John reviewed my CV and told me exactly the best available options for me. Thank you again guys for everything..

Internist!

Even though I have never met Warren and John in person, they were always there when needed, they helped me since day 1, finding the right job, adjusting my CV, tips for the phone interview, and through the whole licensing and immigration process. Warren called me in several occasions even without being asked, he even picked up an envelope for me himself when no one was there. I Just want to thank you all for all your help, I can easily say that coming to Canada would not have happened without your help.
