Comparing Graduates of Canadian Medical Schools and International Medical Graduates

Canadian Medical Association, May, 2014.

“Similarities between GCMS and IMGs who have been licensed in Canada for at least 8 years were seen with respect to location, percentage who were FPs, plans to relocate and professional satisfaction. Significant differences occurred between Canadian graduates and those more recently licensed IMGs. Here there is a clear difference in work hours, location, future plans and satisfaction. As a group, they seem less settled and content in terms of their practice setting and career fulfillment.”
