    Foreign students in Canada???

    Advertisements



    I'm currently a medical student in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and I was really thinking to do a medical residency program in Canada!! Can anyone tell me what do I have to do? I have no idea about what exams and things I will have to do to get into a Canadian medical residency program.
    Thanks

    re: fmg v. Can residence

    Sorry, I don't have the exact link for you,

    you may wish to search (using keywords like CaRMS and residence)
    (btw: CaRMS is the Canadian residence matching service; www.carms.ca)

    It is fairly difficult to get a residence spot in Canada after being trained in a med school outside of Canada/USA. foreign med graduates have to wait until the second round of the match, and there are usually few spots left at this point (and you are competing for these few spots with a ton of other qualified FMG applicants).

    not going to ramble about it anymore, do the search, and you'll find plenty of previous answers on this topic.

    Cheers,
