2014 National Physician Employment Summit

The first National Physician Employment Summit was held in 20110. It included representatives from government and all of Canada’s major medical organizations, all of whom are committed to ongoing efforts to help highly-trained doctors find work and meet patient needs.

The national summit was developed by a pan-Canadian steering committee of healthcare stakeholders representing the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada, Canadian Medical Association, Canadian Nurses Association, Canadian Association of Interns and Residents, College of Family Physicians of Canada, Canadian Orthopaedic Residents Association, Canadian Urological Association, Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec, Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada and the Royal College.
