  9. Is it possible to switch scotia advisors? I got approved for 300,000$ but I am unhappy with my current advisor and would love some help.
  10. Hi guys, FM has a salary of 300K. Now I was curious is, how does this differ from owning a FM med practice. Do doctors that own ciinic make alot more money because they fall under corporate tax?

    How to improve efficiency between doctors and pharmacists?

    I am so sorry this happened and hope you were able to get the issue handled. I believe we as future doctors can improve the system in the future by streamlining the processes and improve patient outcomes/collaboration w/ health professionals.

    How to improve efficiency between doctors and pharmacists?

    Hey. First off, I am sorry to hear this happened. I do understand that you are frustrated and this delay is not ideal. I think you bring an important point about collaboration in a health care setting. For a pharmacist, approaching a physician with recommendations shows that they care for the patient under that physician’s care. Aside from that important fact, it’s a key moment for them to formally present themself and willingly offer a hand if anything concerning medications arises. Politely expressing their desire to help may open additional opportunities to grow professionally in the future. However, not every physician will acknowledge the way pharmacist or patients expect. I think as you point out, failure to detect or communicate prescription error is not good for the patients wellbeing. I think we need to integrate pharmacists into primary care practices to ensure effective communication. It the pharmacist is unable to reach a physician in a timely manner, the pharmacist should proceed with adapting the prescription (this can be one approach). However, the Standard 5.0 of the Standards For Pharmacist Practice gives some criteria as to what a pharmacist must consider. for eg. “A pharmacist must not dispense a drug or blood product under prescription unless the pharmacist has determined the prescription is current, authentic, complete and appropriate.” It would be nice to standardize a process where communication between a physician and pharmacist is guaranteed during urgent/emergency situations.

    Working as a FM Doc vs owning a FM practice?

    RRSP is pretty pointless imo since they still tax that money when you take out the money from RRSP. Also to make a 24k investment in RRSP we need to have 24K in the first place. Lets say a doctor makes 235,000$ before taxes. After tax, it would be 142k. Almost 92,000 is taxed. So for someone to make 24k RRSP, the doctor would lose 24 k annual income already and it would drop to 118k. Thats less money available for other things. So although the doctor saves 12k on RRSP, he has less money available to spend per year. I do get the fact that RRSP can be invested in stocks, bonds etc but even that will get taxed once you take it out so its basically not a real benefit. I personally dont support this tax policy. It is unnecessarily penalizing people who make money. I will support a social insurance fund for health care and education so i can see exactly where the tax is going, the government currently has general revenue taxation which isnt a great way to ensure transparency.

    Saudi Arabia to relocate students from Canada

    Why not just replace the saudi residents with some other wealthy students from Carribean and send them to USA to practice? Some wealthy carribbean students definitely have the money for residency and could very well practice in another country after residency Then we can send them back to another country or saudi to practice. lol

    Working as a FM Doc vs owning a FM practice?

    Thanks a lot. I find the Ontario taxing 85k a year pretty excessive on FM docs who make 230k especially with loans and OSAP to pay off + undergrad debt. It would have been nice if the tax could be avoided somehow legally offcourse.
