Hey guys, do you all know if a US medical graduate with Canadian PR is in the CMG stream or the IMG for the first iteration? I am confused because Canadian and US medical graduates are included as one bullet point under eligibility in one part of the CaRMS website, then IMG and DO’s are lumped together. But then in other parts of the CaRMS website, they only mention CMG and IMG eligibility streams with no mention of USMG.

US grads count as CMG. I called CaRMS to confirm when I was a pre-med applying to med school


EDIT: That was back in 2013, but I doubt they would've made a drastic change

You are right, thanks! This forum is great, much nicer than the American ones lol. Just came here to post a link that answered my own question.


And it’s my understanding that USMDs don’t need to take any of the Canadian board exams like NAC, MCCEE, or MCCQE1 like IMGs do. Can one else confirm that?
