National Physician Survey

National Physician Survey

All medical students and residents in Canada are invited to complete the National Physician Survey (NPS) in the coming weeks. Queen’s School of Medicine has joined with Canadian health care leaders in support of this important initiative. Brief and confidential, the NPS is a unique opportunity to share your views and help shape Canadian healthcare. Your input matters.

Add your voice to Canada’s largest physician workforce survey

The NPS is administered by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (Royal College). An invitation with a personalized survey link will be emailed to you in the next weeks or you can visit the NPS website to find out how to take the survey. It will take only 10-15 minutes to complete.  All responses will remain completely confidential.

The NPS takes the pulse of Canada’s medical profession through input from Canadian physicians, residents and medical students.  Your input helps identify priority issues and trends relevant to future physicians that will help shape future health care planning, research, policy, curriculum development and advocacy. Your input will also help Queen’s School of Medicine get a clearer understanding of your views and perspectives, helping us support your needs and Canadian health care more effectively in the future.

Participate and you could win $1,000!

Completing and returning the survey makes you eligible to win a $1,000 prize. Also, if your medical school finishes with the highest response rate, an additional $1,000 prize will be awarded to your faculty. To learn more or examine past survey results, visit .
