    Canadian graduates of US med schools

    Advertisements



    Any body know what visa issues that a Canadian who graduates from an American medical school has? I know you can extend your student visa by one year for practical training. But what about after that?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Returning to Canada after Residency in the U.S. on J-1 Visa

    Good morning Doctor:

    Further to your request for information regarding the Statement of Need letter to process a J1 visa, please review the attached document.

    Provided that ALL the required documentation is submitted, we will require approximately one week to process your application.

    The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada will recognize United States specialty training provided that it is undertaken as a resident in a specialty or subspecialty residency program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. PLEASE NOTE THAT FAMILY MEDICINE IS NOT ONE OF THE SPECIALTIES RECOGNIZED BY THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF CANADA. You should contact Health Canada for information on how to obtain approval of Family Medicine training.

    Once the training that your will undertake in an ACGME approved program is found eligible for full or partial credit towards an RCPSC recognized specialty or subspecialty, a letter will be sent to Health Canada and to you electronically. The original of the letter along with pertinent information will be sent to you by regular mail.

    If you should require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Sincerely,

    Maritza Boreka
