Local Employment Potential Information
|Location||Employment Potential||Release Date|
Currently the chances of qualified Specialist Physicians finding employment are considered to be good in the local area.
Many of the jobs in this occupation can be found in the Health Care, Social Assistance and Public Administration industries.
In the local area, hospitals are the main employers for this occupational group. Some vacancies were noted online for positions at l'Hôpital Georges-L.-Dumont and The Moncton City Hospital. Both hospitals are referral centers for communities in the Southeast area. Numerous specialists' physicians are currently working at one or both hospitals in a variety of medical services. Certain specialties are only available in Moncton and are provided by specialists who serve to all of New Brunswick.
This occupation has long been in shortage not only in New Brunswick but across Canada. This is a highly regulated occupation with a restricted number of training opportunities.
Technical progress in telecommunications may mean that specialists can provide services at a distance, perhaps in collaboration with general practitioners. In certain specialties, it's very difficult to find a Canadian trained labour force. When this occurs, hospitals in the area must sometimes consider hiring foreign graduates who qualify for licensure in New Brunswick but the process can be extensive. According to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick, approximately 25 per cent of the province's doctors are foreign trained.
Employment opportunities for Specialist Physicians may vary in different communities across the province. You may want to check for specific opportunities in your community. Also, people who are able to work elsewhere may want to research the opportunities for this occupation in other areas of NB or in other provinces across the country.
