    He's talking about "practice ready assessment"

    From Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care - Health Care Providers - International Medical Graduates

    Practice Ready Assessment allows physicians with previous practice experience to undergo a six month assessment in a supervised clinical setting to determine their need for further training or to confirm their readiness to enter directly into practice. Upon completion of the six-month assessment, if they are deemed practice ready, they may proceed to apply for registration to practice medicine in the province of Ontario.

    IMGs interested in advanced level training and practice ready assessment positions must apply through CEHPEA.

    CEHPEA can be reached at :

    Thank you very much I checked the information it is interesting the only hing is I didn't understand the "Eligibility " part when it says "All candidates applying to the Practice Ready Assessment must have experience in an independent professional practice within the last 5 years. In Canada, professional practice refers to clinical activity undertaken in an independent capacity i.e., without supervision. Accordingly, periods of clinical activity undertaken as a medical student (undergraduate, postgraduate or fellow) are not considered periods of professional practice.
    Observerships and Research Fellowships are not considered independent professional practice.
    Supporting documentation can be in the form of:

    Letter from medical board, university, or hospital confirming appointment
    Letter from local licensing authority confirming location of practice and duration of license

    What do they mean by independent professional practice??

    Thanks.

    From what the website says, I'd assume they're saying that you must have been practicing as a doctor somewhere in the last five years e.g. if you're a surgeon from Romania you must have been working as a surgeon in Romania (or elsewhere) within the last five years. Being a med student, resident or fellow doesn't count.

    The supporting documents would simply be confirmation from your hospital and licensing authority that yes, Dr. Surgeon was fully licensed as a surgeon in Romania and had surgical privileges at Big Romanian Hospital.
