Canadian specialty profiles

The specialty profiles contain summary information on Canadian physicians’ practices including workload, income and satisfaction, as well as information on educational requirements, supply and demographics. These data, along with further links within these documents, may be useful to medical students as they plan their future careers as well as to healthcare researchers and others seeking information about specialists.

The profiles were prepared in collaboration with Dr. June Harris of Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Currently, profiles are only available for 38 of the 84 Royal College certified specialties, subspecialties, specialty programs and areas of focused competence.
