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.

The Dr. G. B. Cross Memorial Hospital recently worked with CanAm Physician Recruiting Inc. to secure 2 positions for our hospital. CanAm worked with the candidates to ensure that they were aware of the immigration processes and the licensing process of our province. They answered all of our questions and facilitated a good communication link with the potential candidates. Since hiring the 2 physicians, CanAm has followed up with our office to ensure that the physicians are meeting our needs.

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

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

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.
