question about medical college outside of the united states and canada.?

If i was to go to a college to learn a medical practice outside of the united states and canada would i have the same chance of getting a job at a hospital in the u.s. or canada as i would if i had taken it in the u.s./canada? if so what colleges would be best to go to? im just starting college and i plan to transfer to a canadian school after a year of college on a different continent.

It is a long and trying process to get foreign medical credentials certified. But that does not seem to be what you are saying. You are doing a year of general university studies abroad or you are doing a year at a medical college abroad and you wish to transfer to Canada what you have done? If it is the former that can be done much more easily if it is a recognized institution. The latter would be very unusual but perhaps not impossible. If you were studying at, say, a British or Australian university then you’d have a much better chance than if you were studying in, say Nigeria or Turkmenistan. You might want to contact the Registrar or Admissions office of the Canadian university you think you want to attend and get information from them.

Good luck.

  • I’ll assume the first poster knows the ins and outs of transferring into a Canadian medical school after studying a year abroad. But you would have virtually no chance of transferring into a US medical school. US med schools rarely allow a transfer even between US medical schools.References : 35 years in health care
