MOVE TO CANADA

408 posts in this topic

Everyone needs to get permanent residency if thinking of moving to Canada for good or as a doctor seeking work. This appears to be part of the process of working for the MCC. This appears to be where the $3000 comes from. RE applications to various hospitals, once you've got permanent residency and started those exams - at least having the MCCEE passed. You can start a job. You may find it easier to get into the system by getting networked and literally presenting yourself in person to the teams.

PW2015 where did you get that information from? It's quite different from everything I've read/heard but I see from your previous posts that you did the MCCEE a few years ago

Your analysis is right on!

 

With regards to QE1&2 most provinces will want you to pass this before you get your full/independent/unrestricted licence.

Hi suky, 

What are the benefits of getting the full license. I have the mrcpsych and have a letter of eligibility from the Toronto ontario board that I may sit the fellowship exam after passing the ee. I was hoping that would be end to this exam-taking-frenzy! Do I have to get full licence to work in ontario?

hello all, 

           I have completed my psychiatry post grad training from India this year (2017), what are my options to move into Canada . As per information available on this forum, it mostly highlights about psychiatrists from UK moving to Canada. So if anyone could please elaborate/clarify on the  following,

a) can i show my 3 years Indian post grad training exp as specialty training experience and land a job in any province ?

b) is it enough clearing mccee alone or with qe1 to get a provincial licence and a job ? ( down the line 3-5 years time clearing fellowship exam could earn a consultancy post?) 

b) is it necessary to apply for pr alongside my preparation ?

 

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone have any information on how the Royal College assesses applications via the jurisdiction-approved route? Their email replies are not very helpful.

I'm thinking about doing my psychiatry training in Switzerland (which is an approved jurisdiction for psychiatry), and am not sure that I would be able to complete 100% of the specialty training requirements applicable for Canadian trainees. For instance, Canadian psychiatry residents have to complete at least 8 weeks of neurology (or 4 weeks of neurology and 4 weeks of neuroimaging), plus some internal medicine and/or family medicine and/or pediatrics. When adding all the many requirements up, one could fulfill the non-psychiatry parts of the Canadian specialty training requirements in psychiatry by completing 4 weeks of emergency medicine, 8 weeks of neurology, and 42 weeks of internal medicine. Now comes the problem: it will be extremely difficult to do a very short neurology rotation in Switzerland. Because of that, I was thinking of instead doing 54 weeks of internal medicine including emergency medicine (i.e. replace the neurology part by more internal medicine), but am concerned that that might jeopardize my jurisdiction-approved training assessment.

Therefore my question: Does anyone have any reliable information on how the Royal College assesses foreign training in the jurisdiction-approved route? How closely does the foreign training have to emulate the Canadian curriculum?
