Hello, I am a 3rd yr medical student in the US. Plan is to match back to Canada for FM. I was torn between FM and urology for some time but decided that what I liked about urology were the minimally invasive procedures (TURP, vasectomy, circumcisions...etc) as opposed to prostatectomies or cystectomies. Therefore I realized I would be happy being in FM with the ability to add a few minimally invasive procedures. I am in the US so I came across a link that showed the procedures US FM physicians can do with additional training: https://www.aafp.org/dam/AAFP/documents/events/nc/handouts/nc17-procedures.pdf I was wondering if that is the same in Canada regarding scope of practice? Also if a particular training is not offered in Canada, could one do additional training in the US and come back to practice in Canada? For example a subspecialty in possibly vaginal delivery/C-sections/hair transplant/liposuction/colonoscopies...etc, would be nice to add to FM practice. Also what difficulties and barriers do you all suspect would make this process more difficult? Thanks.
