Physician Heal Thyself............Or You Could Move to Canada
With Obamacare and how politicians see our medical community and foreseeing the rules and regulations imposed on them coming soon, it is no wonder that we are loosing doctors. As a matter of fact, if our country survives long enough to reverse the march toward socialism, we will not have any skilled labor to fill any job in the future.
For years, an exodus of doctors to the United States helped fuel Canada’s growing shortage of medical staff, and gave emotional ammunition to opponents of Canadian-style health-care reform in the States.
But medical recruiters and migration statistics suggest a surprising new trend has emerged over the past few years: a net movement of physicians from the United States to Canada.
The reasons they are coming are equally unexpected: pay that is reportedly much better in some specialties; more freedom in their practices; and uncertainty about the impact of health reform in the United States.
“Canada is the number one spot in the world for doctors to come and work, live and play,” said John Philpott, CEO of CanAM Physician Recruiting in Halifax. “Talking to physicians in the United States, they’re shocked how much more money they can make in Canada.”
