Abstract

The growing shortage of physicians in Canada is the result of a number of factors. These include changes in policy, an aging population and a group of practicing physicians nearing retirement. Canada has always recruited International Medical Graduates. The problems faced by physicians immigrating to the Atlantic Provinces are discussed as well as policy alternatives which will assist in remedying the shortages. Areas for further research are identified.
