Ontario introduces new program to recognize foreign-trained physicians

The second intake period for Ontario’s assessment program for internationally-trained family physicians and general practitioners will begin in early January next year. Practice Ready Ontario (PRO) simplified the process for internationally trained physicians to practise in Ontario by accepting applications from June 21 to July 19 this year. Results were mailed the second week of August. Those who missed the first intake or did not receive a positive result can now apply for the second intake if they meet the requirements. The program includes a 12-week clinical field placement in an assigned community in Ontario to assess applicants’ readiness for independent practice.
