working in Canada

Postby sarahdawn » Sun Oct 26, 2008 8:00 am

Hi, Im a UK citizen and graduated 2007, Im looking to work over seas in Canada for a year with a possibility of staying on for specialist training when Ive finished by foundation training in aug 2009. I don't know what options there are. I've been searching the internet for relevant information and now I feel quite confused. Can I Locum for a year and if so do I still need to pass the exams? Is this my best option and how/when do I go about organising it? I would be very grateful for any advice! thanks Sarah.

I do not think one may practice in Canada without getting either in-training or permanent license. Practically same rules as in the U.S.

Hey anatolyk! Is it of any advantage if i do my electives in Canada, if i want to do my residency in US? Will it be of any value?

It is better to have them completed in the U.S.
At the same time Canadian experience is considered closes to the U.S., so yes, there will be good value.

Hi anatolyk, could really use your advice. I'm a Canadian attaining my M.B.B.S degree from a Pakistani university( currently in fourth year). I'm really confused as to where to pursue a residency (and the required electives). The States or Canada? I figured I'd have a better chance in the States because I've heard they're more lenient(haven't given the USMLEs yet) and more IMG friendly as compared to Canada...is that the right thimg to do? Awaiting your advice, thanks a lot!

Yes, it is much easier to find residency training in the U.S. than in Canada. In most cases your U.S. training counts for obtaining Canadian license as well.
