    Can I ask you a applying for Canadian residency program?

    Advertisements



    Hi Friend

    Actually, I have passed MCCEE in May, So now I'm thinking about applying for QE1 which is scheduled in late Oct or Early Nov.
    However, the QE1 schedule is so late compared to residency applying started on early Sep.
    So, if I give and take QE1 in Oct or Nov, the result may be released on Dec, right?
    I think QE1 result is so late to apply for residency program.
    At this momoment, I have a concern.
    Do I have to apply for my country residency which is started in Sep? Or Just give up my country residency and then, give and take QE1.
    If I do not apply for my country residency and do not get a interview from canadian residency program, that is a big trouble.
    If QE1 schedule is late to apply for residency program, I'll give up the exam now.
    Can you advice me for me?
    Thank you so much

    Best

    1 in 10 IMG's who applied to residency in Canada got a spot. You don't have a good chance of getting into a Canadian residency program.
    Suffering is optional.

    I went to AUC, and then am finishing my residency in Ontario! Don't worry about coming back to Canada, the CPSO has just changed their policies ( check the site) this means more Canadian IMGs are being accepted to residencies!

    Dr. Ross is correct, but not for residency.
    There are only three routes to residency in Canada, that I can see.

    1. First iteration
    2. Second iteration
    3. Practice ready (I'm really not sure how this works, but for people who have already done some residency).

    Ryan Lee - Take the QE1. I took mine in October and they had the results for the interviews in February. Make sure you do well and dont' forget to send in your score reports as soon as you get them.
