Ontario docs are leaving – patients have trouble finding good doctors

{May 2, 2013}   Spotlight on the Luxurious Lifestyle of CPSO Council Members




The following is an interesting comment from a former CPSO Council Member giving a pretty clear insight on whether or not (Medical) Colleges are ballooning out of control.

During the period 2004 to 2011 Ontario physician remuneration increases were close to nil factoring in inflation. Yet physicians are the main/ only payors for the Ontario College whose budget increased by 89% during this period.
Having served a 3 year period on CPSO council prior to this I noted the establishment of a tradition where all interested members of council would go out to the best Toronto restaurants for group dinners, and where multiple bottles of the best wines were consumed. All paid for by CPSO. I also wondered why colleagues did not use the convenient budget airline Porter in travels to/from Toronto. It seemed the higher fares charged by Air Canada,which were fully refunded by CPSO, resulted in far more Airmiles or points for the member.
