There are four jurisdictions where the standards for accreditation of postgraduate family medicine training are judged comparable and acceptable to the CFPC. Approved jurisdictions with equivalent accreditation standards for family medicine training include:
For more information on residency eligibility to the exam, from these four jurisdictions, please see http://www.cfpc.ca/Application_and_Requirements_for_Residency_Eligibility/
For information on Certification without examination for graduates from these four jurisdictions, who have completed training and obtained certification in that jurisdiction, please see http://www.cfpc.ca/RecognizedTraining/.
If someone has completed their medical training somewhere other than Canada or one of these four jurisdictions, then they must meet the requirements available at http://www.cfpc.ca/Application_and_Requirements_for_Practising_Physician_Eligibility/ to sit the exam.
As a standing committee of the Manitoba College of Family Physicians, the International Medical Graduate Committee will support internationally trained medical doctors (IMG’s) to integrate effectively and equitably into Manitoba’s healthcare system and Manitoba Communities.
This committee is chaired by Dr. Deirdre O’Flaherty.
