Invested in physicians and the communities they serve

It takes a team to provide great health care.

So we’ve teamed up for a $15 million commitment to care for physicians.

The Physician Wellness+ Initiative

We know that healthy physicians are vital to the health of Canadians*. That’s why we’ve committed $15 million to support health and wellness programs as a part of our ongoing commitment to physicians, residents, and medical students.

MD Financial Management, Scotiabank, and the Canadian Medical Association share a deep sense of appreciation and gratitude for physicians across the country. We believe there is a strong correlation between the wellness of physicians and the quality of patient care: accessible, high-quality, and tailored health and wellness supports are needed. That’s why we have made a 10-year, $115 million pledge of support to physicians, medical learners and the communities they serve across Canada—and have committed $34.5 million to date (October 1, 2020).
