No wonder you are short doctors - it simply doesn't pay.
I'm sure they get paid well, I actually asked one of my past family doctors how much they got paid. That was years ago. He was paid a lot.
Because its mostly the government that pays them, there's a cap on the amount of medical students, and then if they move away from Canada
(specialists make more money in the US), then we're short doctors.
Also, most doctors want to practice in the cities. It's our rural and northern areas with the most shortages.
