If you complete residency in Ireland or Australia what is the process for coming back to Canada like?

Recommended Posts

Considering going to Ireland or Australia for medical school. I have an EU passport so getting a residency/internship spot in Ireland should not be an issue if I go that route but I'm wondering what the process is like if I'd like to come back to Canada after I am done? Are there reciprocity agreements between the Royal Colleges or is the process just as difficult as trying to land a Canadian residency spot as an IMG?

Easiest for Family Medicine, don't count on most of the other specialties. Was much easier 10-20 years ago as a specialist, harder these days. Not impossible, but much harder.

 

Even for something like psychiatry? I've generally heard family med and psychiatry are 2 of the most "friendly" options for people who either did their residency abroad or want to get a residency in Canada.
