    J-1 Action Plan

    Advertisements



    Hello I am a Canadian Citizen who has matched into EM in the U.S. I will be applying for my Statement of need soon. Does anyone have an example of the Action Plan that you must submit? I am having trouble figuring out what to put in it. Any advice from anyone who has done this would be a great help.

    Thanks.

    Action plan for Ontario residents and others

    If you are from Ontario use pathway 4.
    Policies | Policies & Publications | College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario

    Most other provinces you will have to state that you will take MCCQE1 and MCCQE2 and the RCPSC certification exam - all during residency I believe.

    Oh ya, at this point do not mention anything about applying for waivers or fellowships or chief resident yrs. (Unless you are NOT from Ontario and trying to make your residency duration equivalent to a Canadian one by trying to do a chief yr or fellowship yr.) These all require separate applications and additional statement of need applications in the future if need be. Remember that this is a visa (J1) where your intention is to ultimately come back to Canada. So just keep it that way for now. In the future if you want a waiver you deal with it then.

    Below is the site for the Steps for the statement of need from Health Canada. Most of you will fall under category B - 11 Steps.
    Statements of Need for Postgraduate Medical Training in the United States (2010)


    Good luck!

    I never said an Ontario resident can't pursue a chief or fellowship yr(s). Just that as a first time applicant for residency you address those issues later on since they require further, separate paper work down the road. In fact those two avenues require a whole new application for ANOTHER statement of need when one gets a new contract from their respective program. This is at least for Ontario anyway.

    ok guys, just wanna know if anybody has any information on this. Do we need to apply for new statement of need every year? I know we need to renew our J1 visa every year, but what about statement of need letter.

    no, your statement of need will cover the residency training that is addressed in it. i.e. good for 3 years of IM residency. Like LIB pointed out, it's a separate application for further training (fellowships, a second residency, etc...)
