COA: Spectre of unemployment dogging new orthopedic surgeons
Canadian Medical Association
Responding to an "unemployment crisis" facing newly trained orthopedic surgeons, the Canadian Orthopaedic Association (COA) has called for "immediate" steps to curb residency training levels. "[We] recognize that Canada's high rate of unemployment among orthopedic graduates poses a serious threat to the profession and its ability to serve society," the COA, a CMA affiliate, says in a recently released position statement. "Continued high unemployment among graduating orthopedic surgeons is an unacceptable state of affairs."

Health care system taxed during Fort McMurray's baby boom
Maclean's
Every six hours, a baby is born in Fort McMurray, Alta. This might be a great sign for the young oil town, where the median age is 31, as couples feel they have enough economic stability to start a family. It is not good news, however, for the many soon-to-be mothers expecting wait times upwards of seven hours at the hospital because Fort McMurray has only three obstetrician-gynecologists.
