The provincial government has announced that more doctors will be practicing in Saskatchewan thanks to the Saskatchewan International Physician Practice Assessment program.
Sixteen new physicians began practicing in rural Saskatchewan this summer after completing the SIPPA program in June.
A pair of the new physicians are in Kindersley.
"We are very happy to welcome these new doctors and their families to Saskatchewan," Rural and Remote Health Minister Tim McLeod said. "As one of the many ways we're working to recruit more doctors to our province, SIPPA continues to be a success. I congratulate this latest cohort on completing the program and wish them the best as they embark on this new chapter."
The list of doctors is below:
There are currently 283 internationally trained family physicians who were assessed through SIPPA working in the province, 77 per cent of whom have established practice in rural communities.
