With gratitude | Streamlining certification | Anti-oppression in medicine
Bite-sized information from Royal College CEO, Dr. Susan Moffatt-Bruce
In gratitude to you all
This publication, SMB3, has always been about threes and as I pen this final message to you as your CEO, I find myself reflecting again on three: the past, the present and the future. There were unexpected challenges amidst extraordinary times but above all, I feel immense gratitude – gratitude for the opportunity, the learnings, the new voices, the relationships and the evolution of the Royal College – your Royal College.
Streamlining our certification process for internationally trained physicians
To help alleviate the health human resources crisis, the Royal College is working to streamline the process for internationally trained specialists to be certified in Canada. The Practice Eligibility Route (PER) is for internationally trained specialists who have started practice and it allows them to apply for an assessment for Royal College exam eligibility and, ultimately, certification.
