Physicians for You Recruitment Firm Helps US Doctors Find Jobs in Canada

March 03 13:33 2022

Doctors trained in the United States have a range of options when it comes to their futures in the medical profession. One option that has been gaining a lot of interest in recent years is relocating to Canada. With its high demand for physicians, competitive pay, and publicly financed single-payer healthcare system, Canada represents an attractive opportunity for many USA doctors looking for work and to leave the private health insurance industry. 

Physicians for You Recruitment firm, founded by Phil Martin, specializes in helping international doctors work through the licensing process and sources work all across Canada. He and his team have extensive experience working with doctors who are looking to transition their practice and move to Canada. 

Having moved to Canada from the UK himself over a decade ago, Phil also has a unique understanding of the challenges of moving and setting up a life in a different country. 

“For US physicians thinking of becoming licensed to practice in Canada, the obstacles are not as great in some provinces,” says Phil. “Canada has a rigorous credentialing process which we help our doctors work through and determine their eligibility for licensure.”

How can a US doctor work in Canada? Having credentials such as the United States Medical Licensing Exams (USMLEs), Federation Licensing Examination (FLEX) Components 1 and 2, an ACGME-training program, and/or ABMS board certification will help with the licensing process. If you’re still in medical school, consider completing your residency in the US first as it’s generally much easier for American doctors moving to Canada to complete their work experience in the USA. 

When it comes to specific information on service contracts and physician compensation models, it all depends on the region, the medical facility, and a host of other factors that contribute to the overall package presented to a physician. 

According to Mr. Martin, many doctors who call Physicians for You have never visited Canada before. “It’s not uncommon for a candidate to be unsure of where they would want to live in Canada. We encourage international doctors to ideally consider multiple options for where to set up their practice. Sometimes they are relocating to be close to family, and we always work with the physician’s needs and requests. Our website is a great resource and offers a wealth of information on communities across the country so doctors can do their research ahead of time, and search roles in locations across Canada on our comprehensive doctor job board (”
