Libby Znaimer is joined by Walter Feeney, Program Lead of Physician Information at CIHI and Dr. Sohail Gandhi, President of the Ontario Medical Association.
According to a report by the Canadian Institution for Health Information, in the past 5 years, the population growth of Canadian physicians has outpaced that of the general Canadian population. Here are the numbers: the Canadian population grew by 4.6%, while the number of physicians grew by 12.5 percent.
The report also provides information on the demographics of our physicians. Nearly half of the doctors are females (47%). Libby and guests discuss the findings of the report and what this all means for Canadians.
