Medical specialists looking to emigrate to canada

Recommended Posts

Leila

My husband and I are both medical specialists looking to move to Canada, specifically to BC.  The process to get our South African medical qualifications assessed is a long and expensive one.  Currently waiting to hear from the RCPSC for a positive ruling on our specialist qualifications.  We're working with a health recruitment agency in BC who recommend that we go the work permit route as that would be quicker.  I've submitted an EE profile anyway but only scored 426 on the CRS.  I've seen somewhere on the government website that they use different criteria to assess federal skilled workers and I've seen colleagues with similar scores being invited.

Are there any medical specialists going through this process at the moment.  Any advice would be most welcome.

I have a friend who is an Emergency Physician and said exactly what you are saying. The hoops they make you jump through is incredible...

Having said that, if you wanted to amend your destination to PEI, I will personally go and pound the pavement to PEI Health, on your behalf, as and when needed :P

We need great medical specialists

Hi Leila, I'll be following your post in the hope of gaining further insight. I'm a Medical Technologist. I will need to undergo a Prior Learning Assessment (R10000) and then obtain CSMLS certification (R18000) prior to creating any profiles or looking for jobs. It would be like rewriting my board exam. A job agency informed me that I won't secure employment in my field without this certification. I need to find out if it's possible to write this exam from here in SA or if I would have to go to Canada to write it. That would be another big expense. 

Anyway, I hope it all works out for you.
