Guest Mikey59 Posted January 1, 2003 Report Share Posted January 1, 2003 I've been really struggling with the issue of where to attend med school and was hoping you could help with some of my questions. Here's my situation: Born and raised in Canada, went to high school in Canada but moved to the US halfway through. I finished high school down here and recently finished a 4 year University degree at an American school. I hope to attend a Canadian medical school and eventually practice in Canada BUT, what are my options if I don't get in to a Canadian school? I have a green card so logically, I applied to about 15 US schools in addition. What is the procedure for me to return to Canada as the graduate of a US medical school at the following points: 1) graduate from a US med school, try to get a residency in Canada Do Canadian citizens from the US qualify for round one of the Canadian residency match? Information so far on this site and the CaRMS seems to be contradictory at times. Who can I contact to find out the exact answer? 2) graduate from a US med school, obtain and complete a residency in the US, then try to get licensed to practice in Canada. How are Canadian Born-American residency graduates licensed to work in a province like Ontario or Quebec? I would like to make my return to Canada as painless as possible, so obviously getting into an Ontario school will be best for me. However, I would like to make an educated decision before plonking down $200k on an American education (if that situation arises). Thanks in advance for any replies!
