The Big Wait Trailer Print E-mail

While millions of Canadians wait to get a family doctor, thousands of foreign-trained physicians wait to fulfill their dream of becoming licensed doctors in Canada. The Northern Ontario community of Midland-Penetanguishene forms the backdrop for this candid look at the effects of bureaucracy on the health of the nation.

'The Big Wait' focuses on three foreign-trained doctors who are waiting to get accredited and on the rural communities who are waiting for them. While the doctors face unforeseen challenges trying to do what they were trained to do, the town searches for doctors willing to set-up a family practice in their community. 'The Big Wait' features a journey of parallel story lines. Will the community of Midland-Penetanguishene find its doctors? And, will the international doctors find a way to get into the system? Its the true story of patients and doctors on a human journey in the changing medical landscape.
