    Can practising for couple of years in the states make up for shorter residency?

    Advertisements



    Hi all,

    I know that Canada does not recognize US residencies since the canadian counterpart program takes usually longer. But my question is this, if someone practises a few years after their residency in the US, can that be used to make up for the shorter residency time? After all , what better training than actually healing patients as a fully fletched doctor?

    Any response is greatly appreciated

    Thanks,
    R-

    Interesting question,

    I've seen some cases of doctors that have been posted on the net where they were fully qualified and licensed US docs that still where not able to get licensed in Canada...

    So I believe that even being licensed and practicing may not make much difference. Though there is a new ontario program that allows you to return to Ontario after 5 years of practice in another country without any tests. I believe an American residency may qualify for this.

    I would search for that link, it's in this section somewhere and contact the ppl in charge.
