The article presents a research to determine preference of physicians for remuneration type in Canada. The Canadian government has been trying to implement payment plan alternatives to avoid the customary fee-for-service (FFS) scheme. A survey was conducted to medical students, residents and physicians categorized by age to extract data regarding type-of-payment preferences such as FFS, salary only, sessional/hourly or per-service contract only.
