    Training and Practice in Canada (OTPC) - Canadian residency requirements

    Advertisements



    I have a few questions about the OTPC program:

    -what is the compensation that is provided for taking the OTPC?
    -can students select dates or are they told which dates they are suppose to take the program?
    -is it possible not to take it if you grew up in Canada?

    In general, none.

    Contact the OMA (Ontario Medical Association) if you require financial assistance, as you may be eligible for a small bursary.

    -can students select dates or are they told which dates they are suppose to take the program?
    You will be assigned to a particular session within 2 weeks of being successfully matched in a specialty program through CaRMS. (Congrats on matching BTW!)

    -is it possible not to take it if you grew up in Canada?
    As long as you matched through CaRMS into a specialty residency program, you are obligated to participate. Doesn't matter where you grew up. (OTPC is a pre-requisite for the 12 week AVP).
