There is a known physician shortage across Canada. In 2017, Canada ranked 28th out of 39 developed countries based on physician-to-population ration (i.e. the number of physicians per 1000 people) (OECD, 2017). On average, there are 2.7 doctors per 1000 people across Canada (OECD, 2017). This is problematic as a physician shortage encourages access to care challenges for patients, and promotes physician burnout in the small group of physicians supporting the larger system. Additionally, work underway by Dr. Paul Kurdyak proposes further segregation of the already small group of physicians supporting our system. Kurdyak outlines three practice styles that separate psychiatrists by their caseloads.
