The article reports on the increasing interest of Canadian medical school graduates who are choosing family medicine residencies as their career preferences. It says that the increase trend is possibly attributed to the salary increase and the opportunity allowing new doctors to work with nurses and other health care professionals. It adds that a small portion of Canadian medical graduates did not find their residencies due to their unrealistic goals and failure to apply in various programs.
