La santé mondiale entre racket et bien public-Partie I

Political leaders also make promises before elections and then forget.

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty recently made comments regarding foreign trained doctors. Honourable Premier commented they "are actually what we call practice ready, so instead of going into the lengthy residency for which they are overqualified, they're going to go into the practice under the direct supervision of the other doctors who will help them fill in any gaps between 6 to 12 month period before they can practice independently."

Honourable Ontario Premier also expressed his concerns: "In certain communities like the South Asian communities doctors driving cabs has become a common phenomenon to the aggravation of many. Ontario and Canada needs to send a strong message to the world that people are welcome here in Ontario and Canada."

 Andrew Padmos, the chief executive officer of Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, recently commented "between 6,000 and 10,000 doctors can't practise in Canada because there aren't enough spots in residency programs". Dr. Padmos also told the Commons standing committee on human resources: "If they require residency, there are severe constraints, that's because there are only slightly more residency spots in Canada than there are medical school graduates each year. He further commented: "It's insufficient to deal with several thousand foreign-trained grads". Dr. Padmos also gave his solution: "qualifying doctors can sometimes get around the residency backlog by working under the temporary supervision of a Canadian-trained physician – but that option has its own price tag".

 There are many clinical and research fellowship positions in every hospital and academic institution in Canada. These fellowships are now offered to foreign trained doctors who are neither citizens nor permanent residents of Canada. Among the foreign trained immigrant doctors there are many specialist physicians and academics with long experience of working in specialized hospitals. These fellowship positions can be utilized to give them Canadian experience.

Highly skilled and experienced doctors have come to Canada to fulfill their dream and also for a better life. They came to Canada because they promised to utilize their skills when they were invited to contribute to the growth of Canada and also to serve the people of Canada.

As these skilled doctors are now struggling to find any means to survive and also to find a meaningful life, they are praying to God and waiting for any hope.

Thank you very much.
Immigrant Doctors of Canada
