The article focuses on the abundance of physicians in the province of Nova Scotia in Canada, having 231 physicians per 100,000 population. Jane Brooks of Doctors Nova Scotia says that the presence of Dalhousie University medical school in Halifax, which provides more than 100 teaching sites, was one of the key factors in drawing physicians. Moreover, the recruitment initiatives of the government, the quality of health facilities, and alternative payment plans helped attract physicians.
