Canadian IMG needs Residendy in USA

Postby taty » Thu May 25, 2006 1:04 pm

HI all!

It's the first time for me to write here. I'm wrinting for my Husband who is a canadian citizen and has also a specialization in Public Health from Italy.
He wants to work as doctor in USA ( here in Canada it's not easy to have a place in residency). He already has MCEEE ( Canadian exam for IMG's) SO questions are:

- How are the steps to get into residency?
- As a canadian citizen does he need to apply for a special visa?
- How and in which hospitals is it possible for him to get externship or observership in US ? (especially in Florida, Massachussets or New york)

Thanks for help me out.

- How are the steps to get into residency?
Take the USMLE tests and get ECFMG certified. Start here: www.ecfmg.org

- As a canadian citizen does he need to apply for a special visa?
Yes, J1 or H1. For H1 he also must pass Step 3.

- How and in which hospitals is it possible for him to get externship or observership in US ? (especially in Florida, Massachussets or New york)

Anywhere where is a position. Just apply to all the hospitals there.

No formal requirements exist for an observership and/or externship. This will be up to an individual hospital.
