HELP - Doctor wants to Immigrate




Hi All

A very best friend of mine is a doctor in mumbai, india
He is 30.
He makes minimun 2 lakhs/month profit in his clinic during offseason (that is 3-4 months) other wise makes 3-4 lakhs/month.
His clinic is well established now.
His wife earns 1 lakh a month. His wife is an Architect.
He has appx 5 flats as well good amount of property back home in mumbai.
He is the only son to his parents, and has one year old daughter.

He wants to come to canada now, and is being very stubborn.
Me as well everyone else (his doctor friends) explained him that it would not be a good idea to immigrate here
as he already is well settled back home.

He is planning to come over here on student visa as well wants to do MBA in People Administration *i dont know where the heck he got advised to do this course*.
We advised him a lot about not to go ahead, but somehow, one of his friend gave him a very beautiful picture of Canada.

We explained him, its good Country no doubt, but for him it may not be a viable option as he is already
well settled back home and he lives lavishly.

I advised him to come over here on Visitor Visa and stay with me for couple of months to see if he will be able to adapt, as
he has never lived in his life without maid service and never worked hard, after studying medicine back home he was lucky to
start his own clinic and has established it very well.

I am also afraid, if he comes here and if nothing would work out, he might go back but then his well established clinic would be
like he will have to start it again which would be difficult.

How could i explain him that this would not be a good option for him to immigrate here. I explained him that he will
have to study a lot here to be a doctor as Indian Degree won't be of any value, as well expense to study medicine is too much.

Any and all comments will be appreciated, as i would like to show this post to him with all replies.

HI
I am a doctor-Much older than him -worked in UK now in USA for the past 4 years and moving to Ontario next month bcos both me and my wife got a job at a same place-Waterloo
For me even though I am working independently in USA, Canada has put so many restrictions on my license that it is stifling.For a doctor trained in India if he wants to be a doctor in Canada it is very difficult.He has to give exams and get into residency program-it is much easier to get into residency in USA than in Canada.
If he wants to get into other fields related to medicine like public health he stands a better chance

Hi Newbieca,

Please have your doctor friend contact a individual named: Tamil-Kuravan (aka TK), immediately!

Two sessions with TK will cure your friend of Canada-mania. The good Doctor will have 'water-boarding' like experience if he even hears the word 'Canada'.

Best wishes,

Rajagopal.

Nope I disagree with very idea of restraining somebody's desires to move.

Go and sit in the person's head, and also read Maslov's theory of hierarchical needs.

(no philosphy here , pure practical thought, I do not even know correct spelling of philosophy :-) .. While we are thinking of job security, professional success of the subject (the 30 something doctor) , he has achieved that already in early age and looking for something which his surroundings not able to offer.

He can make a plan , and execute it step by step. Should be prepared to do lot of sacrifice and hard work (Why we are judging that he will not be able to make it here ). He got money to survive here for years without working. Can take exams, course on student visa, experience the life here and then decide. Not to forget, His wife is self sustaining individual who can start the career right away.

About well established practice and fear of losing it, I would say he got a talent, proven at young age, he can break and make it hundred times with his talent.
Success has different definition for different people. If he curbs his urge to move at this point, he will come back to the thought every now and then, sulk over drinks and will curse the 'bad' decision of not coming to CA, as his wealth will grow, that thought will be more frequent.

Your duty is to prepare him mentally and show pros and cons. Criticizing will not help.

Personally , with that kind of positive and healthy financial and double skill situation, I'll do the adventure, at the most will lose one flat of five and few years if failed which is highly unlikely but will have unmatched feeling of contention in the end.

This is something, many have probably forgot to note. It is evident from his intention that.

1. He is not very keen on continuing his career as a Doctor ( I think he is well informed).

2. He might have got what is happening around in Mumbai say, Dawood's Haftha -gang, Thackrey and the mighty Sharad Pawar...

He was able to become a doctor without ever working very hard?!

An employed doctor in Canada can easily afford a house keeper. As you are no doubt aware his path to becoming an employed doctor in Canada would be long. I'm not sure how his new degree fits into his plan, maybe he is not planning on being a practicing clinician.

There are steps he can take to begin having his credentials assessed before he comes here (I'd recommend this for any profession). http://www.mcc.ca/en/obtaining_license.shtml

Make sure he is aware of the statistics regarding internationally qualified physicians and medical residency. Some people will believe anecdotal stories more than statistics and there isn't much you can do about that.

If he wants to study a particular degree I would recommend he have a clear career goal in mind. Canadian universities offer a lot of unemployable degrees, best to make sure it is really necessary and in keeping with any career he has in mind.

He must have looked around the study options and this must be best he can apply for to 'come' here.

Let him come to Canada yarr!
One less doctor in India one more oppertunity for Indians !
Looks like he has saved a lot of money and now he wants to experience hard work, racism, cold, corruption free environs, tim coffee, good free primary education for his children, high insurance, high comissioned mortgage/ house brokers, good tap drinking water, high levels of unemployment, nice white girls...
Let him come by all means and then let him move to better employment in the Gulf.

Peace
