After Graduation

Postgraduate Medical Residency Training Programs

A medical degree does not necessarily give you the right to practice as a physician. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have met all the licensing requirements of the country in which you intend to practice medicine.

If you are in Canada on a study permit (visa), there are restrictions as to where you can apply for medical residency training within Canada after obtaining your medical degree. Applications are managed via the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS). For provincial eligibility criteria, please see the summary of intake criteria for visa holders.

You may apply to participate in a US medical residency training program match as a graduate from a Canadian medical school. There are a number of different organizations handling applications to residency programs:

For medical residency training in all other countries, please check with the representative organization(s) within that country.

If you are an international medical graduate hoping to undertake further training or an observership via the University of Toronto, you should contact Postgraduate Medical Education.
