How would a US MD Canadian medical student graduating from a US Ophthalmology residency program practice in Canada?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am a US MD student from Toronto. I want to practice in Canada, specifically Toronto. Since my odds of matching to an optho residency in the US are astronomically greater than matching to an optho residency in Canada, what is the process for me coming back to Canada after completing a US optho residency?

I don't think this is well known. It certainly isn't going to be straightforward because there is a mismatch in years of training unfortunately. In other specialties you need an extra year of training to make up for it (where Canadian training is longer).
