Nationally and globally, there is a shortage of many healthcare professionals, including physicians. We recognize that in Alberta and in Canada there are unemployed or underemployed IMG physicians who wish to use their skills in health care service delivery in Canada.
We have developed programs that support International Medical Graduates integrate successfully into the Canadian Healthcare system. Our programs increase communication skills and knowledge of patient-centred care.
We also have programs that train preceptors working with IMGs in residence or as an examiner on OSCE exams to assess communication skills and language proficiency levels for practice.
