Cornwall Exhibiting at Medical Recruitment Fair in MontrealFebruary 18, 2020
Cornwall Ontario – Cornwall’s Medical Recruitment Team is in Montreal today to speak to medical professionals from the Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec.
The event, called Outside Quebec Career Day, provides an opportunity for Quebec medical residents to meet with representatives of health establishments from across Canada who will be on site for the occasion. Cornwall has attended this career exposition for more than 15 years.
“The Outside Quebec Career Day is one of the best trade shows for medical recruitment in Eastern Canada,” says Joy Cella, Physician Recruiter with the Cornwall Community Hospital. “Attendees are a mix of family physicians and specialists so we are able to maximize our efforts and meet community needs.”
Cornwall’s Medical Recruitment Team is a partnership between the Cornwall Community Hospital and Cornwall Economic Development that works to attract medical and health care professionals to the city. The team attends a number of targeted events throughout the year, and provides information on why Cornwall would be a good place to further a career in health care. A key component of that message is the newly renovated campus of the Cornwall Community Hospital and the ongoing program of implementing new technology.
The Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec is made up of the four medical resident associations linked to the University of Montreal, McGill University, University of Sherbrooke and Laval University (Quebec City) healthcare system. It has some 3,600 members, who deliver services to the public in Quebec’s healthcare establishments. One quarter of these medical residents work in family medicine, while the remainder are in other medical, surgical and laboratory specialties. More than 57% of medical residents are women.
At the show, the Cornwall team will be highlighting specific needs in the local community for medical professionals. Many of the current employment opportunities can be viewed on the ChooseCornwall.ca Job Board.
