Introduction.
For years, international medical graduates have chosen Canada as their place to practice the art and science of medicine. Among the many steps necessary for those wishing to obtain their license is the requirement that they successfully complete the College of Family Physician of Canada’s certification exam. While most departments of family medicine provide their residents with exam preparation workshops, there is currently little available to assist practice eligible candidates, including international medical graduates not enrolled in a residency program. We present a workshop designed to assist international graduates interested in practising in Canada and challenging the College of Family Physicians of Canada’s certification exam. The workshop will provide an in-depth overview of the Canadian certification exam and an opportunity for participants to compare certification practices in other jurisdictions.
Goals.
To provide participants with an in-depth overview of the CFPC’s certification exam. The workshop will also provide an opportunity for participants to compare certification practices in their own jurisdiction with that in Canada.
Methods. The information will be delivered in a workshop format and will provide ample opportunity for participants to interact.
