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

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.

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.

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.

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.

One will find he has a true interest in the client/candidate finding the appropriate match and all the accompanying contacts to make a smooth transition possible.

Dr. Kormos

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.

Dr. Raymond Hegarty

During the one year which I acted as interim CoS at GASHA I had the great advantage of having Mr. Philpott (CanAm Recruiting) work with me in recruiting several physicians. He was quick to follow up on any potential candidates all of whom were well screened and so were of good calibre but, more importantly, steered them through the difficulties in dealing with Canadian immigration, manpower requirements and licensure. He made my job infinitely easier and it was a pleasure, at all times, to work with him. I can unreservedly recommend him.

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.

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.
