    RCPSC Internal Medicine Exam

    Advertisements



    Due to different training year of internal medicine between USA and Canada, RCPSC requires at least 4 years of residency training. For those who are currently doing Internal Medicine residency in USA, other than routes of being a chief resident, fellowship, are there any other ways to fulfill the criteria? Can you still sit for RCPSC Internal Medicine exam if the criteria is not met?

    Thanks

    The RCPSC does not grant admission to its examinations without meeting its Specialty Training Requirements.

    Possibilities are:

    Chief Resident in the US - PGY4

    Geriatric Medicine for one year in the US - PGY4 - has to be ACGME accredited

    Subspecialty of two or three years in the US - the first year of subspecialty is counted as the fourth year of Internal Medicine - has to be ACGME accredited

    Subspecialty of two or three years in Canada - the first year of subspecialy is counted as the fourth year of Internal Medicine - have to apply through carms

    Ontario Repatriation Program - PGY4 in Internal Medicine - apply through Ontario ministry of health - you don't have to be an Ontario resident - there is a return in service, one year service for one year of training.

    PGY4 in Alberta or BC. Not advertised, but possible. You have to contact a PD and Alberta Health / BC Health directly. Not sure if there is a return in service component.
    account no longer in use.

    valuablecanadian:
    thanks for your reply.
    i actually called rcpsc and this rep is very strick with the criteria that has to be met in order to sit for rcpsc internal medicine board exam.
    it seems to me that if u r internal medicine-trained in the us, u may just settle down practicing medicine in usa.
    reading from experience from rpcsc internal medicine exam, it's a darn hard exam with only 3 tries. if u fail 3 times, u can never write it again. even with the rpsc internal medicine board certificate, it's very hard to practice medicine in 'good' area, like vancouver, toronto, etc.
    does anyone out there who has completed both usa medicine residency training and rcpsc internal medicine board find any decent jobs in canada?
