Sudbury continues to enjoy great success with its doctor recruitment drive. Sixteen physicians opened a practice in Sudbury this year including nine specialists. Those specialties include the departments of cardiology, obstetrics, pathology, oncology and general surgery. And as further proof that the Northern Ontario School of Medicine works, seven of the new doctors are graduates of the school. Since 2000, Sudbury has seen 214 doctors come to the city. Partners involved in the annual drive are the Health Sciences North hospital, the City of Sudbury and its chamber of commerce.
