    Then roster more patients. Aren't you able to bypass the 20/month thing? Lots of guys join just a little while after residency.

    FHOs also do shadow billing plus earn money when they aren't seeing patients. So no, non-FHOs can't win. But you do bring a good point about walk-in use in the city. Anyway plenty of small towns attached to the GTA perimeter. If you want to make the big bucks and crack past mid 6 figures, you need to give something up.

    Yup but still loads of empty spots.

    Plenty of people retiring and you often get good deals on them. Not to mention a big roster to come with it often. Not in those places, but step out another 20 minutes. Your plan should be to live in those suburbs and work 20 minutes away from them. Also even if you could get a spot inside Toronto, it's a bad idea to begin with. How will you roster a lot of patients? It's much easier to do it in a growing town on the GTA perimeter.

    It's a major problem if you're weirdly obsessed with living inside Toronto. Once you step 30 minutes out and work another 20 minutes out, problem solved.

    Yeah like three years ago and tons of new doctors have joined since . Why not be one of them? People join and create new FHOs regularly...

    Yep absolutely. And those admins sit around and come up with rules to make life harder for everyone. Create more meaningless paperwork and more check boxes that serve 0 value. Their reward? A public funded 6 figure salary.

    That's insane!!! And we should have far less than Europe if anything.

    True, but before even looking at doctors there better be enormous cuts made at the admin level across all sectors. We don't need all these admins because we don't even need the rules they come up off. I mean seriously, how hard is it now to set up an elective for a med student vs years ago? There are layers of useless rules that can be erased followed by hiring less admin. Save the easy money first and then look at doctors.

    Those private surgery clinics are ultimately helping people though. Left wing provincial govs have been damaging healthcare delivery to people because doctors making more $$ to them is evil. You'd be surprised how much better life would be overnight if you vaporized the LHINs. Same goes for so many layers of bureaucracy.

    That's fine as long as one doesn't fall into the minority crew of those who support cuts to physician income. Wynne gov took pleasure in cutting doctors' income in order to give raises to administrators who do nothing all day and make 6 figures. Or those who supported the trudeau/morneau corp tax changes. There was a group of like... 200 doctors? who signed off supporting the evil tax changes. It's always stuff involving like <0.01% of doctors that gets media attention (ex. quebec doctors who rallied against income raises).

    A true free market is not within the realm of reality in medicine. You can't have random quack doctors with fake credentials. It'd be insanity. So left as in social policies? Or left as in, government should cut physician income and raise our taxes? Which is it? If you know doctors in the latter, I assure you they're in the minority. If med students in the latter (of which there are quite a few), no one cares what uninformed students think.
