Any IMGs have experience with the AVP (assessment verification period)? What's it like?

Recommended Posts

It is very uncommon for anyone to actually fail the AVP, and the most likely reasons for failure are usually behavioral or professional deficiencies, rather than lack of knowledge. Before the AVP existed, it was more difficult for residency programs to fire problem-residents. The AVP is basically a final checkpoint, and gives programs a way to remove IMGs who don't adjust well to their residency, the Canadian system, or both. Your responsibilities will be the same as CMGs, and you will be treated the same as well. That was at least my experience going through it.
