  1. Thank you everyone I see that it can vary but that 250 is on the lower side. I’ll keep this is mind. Please feel free to keep the discussion going it’s lovely to see so many perspectives!!
  2. Hi I’m a cdn who went down under to Australia 8ish yrs ago and am now a full fledged GP looking to move to Canada (which is why I was on this forum). I just saw this and wanted to make sure you don’t make a mistake. I’m def biased but I remember a few years ago when I was applying abroad (Bach+masters in astrophysics so my grades were not competitive and I didn’t wanna do another undergrad for cdn schools) I saw that in Ireland they don’t have residency positions for non EU ppl.... Caribbean is bad cus if u by chance screw up you’re kicked out and you need to kill the STEPs. I went to Aus cus even though internship and residency is a lot longer here and not “guaranteed” Aus in recent yrs has had almost no international students from their med schools not get internship and eventually residency....contrary to what ppl say on this forum (there are gov’t reports available for this (search HETI)). But most of my friends that came here decided to stay cus they had the opportunity to do so didn’t have to write any exams for US/ Canada but some did go back most of them to FM (which in my yr was a 8/9 match rate back to Canada) Don’t go international unless you’re sure you can train there I believe Aus and maybe UK (not sure) are the only countries that have very good prospects for training post grad.
  3. Please someone have any numbers as to what I should expect? Money is not my priority but we really wanna buy a house and start a family and I wanna maximize earnings until my little ones come around...
  4. Hiya guys, I’m a GP In Australia originally from Canada (did my undergrad and masters in astrophysics at Mac so didn’t have the grades for med) but I went down under 8 yrs ago for med (also just to settle things cus I have seen recent comments about how “hard” it is to get an internship spot in Australia- it’s not or not now at least everyone gets one if they apply somewhere most internationals in regional centres- matching to Canada however apart from fam med is pretty hard but those that wanted to did it). Anyways I’m fully licensed here and am earning about 290k per yr AUD. My wife who’s also a GP and Canadian are thinking of moving to Canada and I was wondering what kind of salary would I be looking at in Ontario. I’ve talked to a recruiter and they say it varies from 250-500k which is a massive range. I plan to work 50 hrs a week hopefully as a hospitalist ? But clinics will do as well. Since Aus has a reciprocity agreement I don’t have to do the CFPC and only the MCCQE’s which I plan to write soon so I’ll be fully licensed when I start. Any numbers as to salaries would be greatly appreciated... I don’t wanna feel cheated if I sign a contract.
