Physician Life in Kingston



Kingston has a very large community of physicians.  In fact, Kingston has more physicians per 1000 people than almost any other city in Canada.  In addition, 8.2% of the population are health care professionals.  Postgraduate residents are welcomed into a supportive and collaborative medical community.

The region's patient population is incredibly diverse with urban and rural populations and varying levels of socio-economic status.  Kingston has unique demographics with significant retirement, student, aboriginal, military, and incarcerated populations.  Physicians benefit from a broad patient base and exposure to the full spectrum of clinical cases.

Postgraduate residents who are relocating to Kingston may take advantage of the City's spousal employment program, run by the Kingston Economic Development Corporation (KEDCO).
