“Michelle and the team at CanAm recruiting have been fantastic to deal with. They assisted us in recruiting several specialists successfully to our group practice. From ad posting to recruitment to interviewing, Michelle was there every step of the way. Would recommend highly to anyone looking to recruit physicians in Canada.” F.S. London, ON

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.

John Philpott and his staff have the finger on the pulse of current physician recruitment throughout the world. They helped us find 2 highly qualified physicians that we could not find via “traditional” recruitment methods. If you are looking for qualified physicians or you are a physician looking for the best recruitment specialists available then look no further than John Philpott and CanAm Physician Recruiting. You won’t be disappointed.

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.

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

Rob Casserley, MD, MRCGP, CCFP

I’d just like to thank CanAm recruiting, and in particular Phil Jost, for securing my first job in Canada. What seemed like an impossible task when I set out trying to do things on my own, rapidly took shape with the guidance from Phil. I talk with particular perspective as an IMG and the difficulties that we can face trying to break in to the workforce of Canada. However, he’s helped with finding a potential employer, making me an “acceptable’ candidate – helping to resolve issues such as work permit, PCRC, CMPA, MCCEE. He gave clear, easy to follow advice, which when looked at altogether seemed like a mountain to climb but with CanAm’s advice, became a tangible process that took, from start to finish, in the order of 3-4 months, a genuinely remarkable turn-around. This, bearing in mind, I was starting right at the beginning/from scratch. Thanks Phil and CanAm recruiting. I look forward to working through you guys for the ongoing future. Rob Casserley

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.

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

Tatiana Slivko. MD, CCFP

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.

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

Kevin Wasko, Cypress Health Region

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.
