Postgraduate Training in the United States
Medical students who wish to pursue postgraduate medical training in the United States must obtain a statement of need. Statements of Need are issued by Health Canada to medical graduates to assist them to obtain a J-1 Visa to enter the US to pursue postgraduate medical training in the US. Applicants are expected to pursue medical training which is recognized by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), or the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), and Canadian medical regulatory authorities, and which will lead to specialty certification and medical licensure in a province or territory.
