COA’s Position Statement on Orthopaedic Graduate Unemployment

The COA recognizes that Canada's high rate of unemployment among orthopaedic graduates poses a serious threat to the profession and its ability to serve society. Continued high unemployment among graduating orthopaedic surgeons is an unacceptable state of affairs. This situation is all the more acute, since Canada's population already has great difficulty gaining access to timely orthopaedic evaluation and treatment. The COA believes governments and hospitals, which together fund and manage the health-care system, should allocate their hospital-based resources more effectively to better serve Canadians who need musculoskeletal care. The COA has issued a position statement urging its members to educate themselves further about this issue and to take steps to help manage this situation.  Click here to view the complete statement.
