Query regarding practicing Medicine

Discussion in 'Express Entry / Expression of Interest' started by Parvez1380, Oct 12, 2019 at 8:56 AM.

  1. Hi there, I am new in this blog. So pardon me if I am repeating an already answered question. I have a few questions actually.

    1. As I am a doctor, can anyone please tell me, what is the way to get license in order to practice medicine in Canada?

    2. I am 38 years old, from Bangladesh. Is it possible to pass the licensing exam for me? Or is it too hard after a certain age to pass? As I have heard rumors that the examiners are reluctant to pass examinee after certain age (not sure about that).

    3. Does completing MRCP count as eligibility to practice?

    4. What are the documents that need to be evaluated by MCC? I have 4 years training certificate. Does it need to be evaluated? Or my intern certificate?


    Thanks in advance for your help.
     
  2. 1. As I am a doctor, can anyone please tell me, what is the way to get license in order to practice medicine in Canada? First register at www.physiciansapply.com, that will guide you to the whole process. Then you need to register and take 2 exams, MCQE I & II, first one lets you practice under supervision and begin residency training.

    3. Does completing MRCP count as eligibility to practice? Do you have a specialty? Have you done formal residency training? What's your experience?

    4. What are the documents that need to be evaluated by MCC? I have 4 years training certificate. Does it need to be evaluated? Or my intern certificate? Training in what?
     
  3. Thanks for the reply. I have training in Medicine for 4 years, that is intrrnal medicine. Residency training. And i am willing to appear in MRCP, in medicine ofcourse, so wanted to know wheather it would be benificial or not. Thank you once again.
     
  4. Physicianapply only issue E. C. A fir basic Qualification tht is M. B. B. S. And give it equivalent to Masters. Any specialty degree less then 5 years after M.B.B.S is considered speciality certificate n no E. C. A is issued n unless u hve finished DM.. .. Which will be evaluated as Doctoral. .. .and about practice medicine in Canada. .. It's a long expensive journey.u have to almost start from scratch. .. But at end nothing is impossible
     
  5. I would really discourage you from immigrating if you want to keep practicing medicine. You’ll need to pass both licensing exams and then get a residency spot to repeat your whole residency. That is another 5 years. There are almost no residency spots left after Canadian students have matched with a residency program. There are slightly better chances if you are a family doctor, pathologist or psychiatrist. Also slightly better chances if you speak French. The majority of IMGs never practice medicine in Canada. GiVen your age you would also have a harder time being selected by residency programs. They will likely select a younger IMG so they can remain in practice longer. The UK would be a much better option.
     
  6. What kind of doctor are you? Did you complete your training in the US? I think you may be in for a shock when it comes to getting into both a residency program or one of the family medicine underserviced area programs. If you are a specialist and not a pathologist or psychiatrist there is very little point in even trying. On top of that Canadian medical students aren’t able to find jobs when they graduate in specialist positions and some have to go abroad to find a job.

    Please look at this year’s residency match and see how few spots are left and you have to factor in that some Canadians students remained unmatched. I may seem negative but many IMGs arrive in Canada with the impression that if they work harder than others they’ll get a spot. Unless you are a family doctor there aren’t many spots left. Enrolment in Canadian meds schools have also increased so there won’t ever be a ton of extra residency spots. If you want to practice medicine consider other places.
