The article discusses the resolution of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) on the need to align training positions for new graduates and resident specialist physicians to increase their employment chances in the Canadian medical system in 2011. It says that CMA should provide assistance to these physicians by providing job-trend data to help in their career-planning. Doctor (Dr.) Shirle Sze says that the problem of specialist physician unemployment is due to poor human resource planning.
