Getting Your English Language Proficiency Passing Test Scores: The College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia (CPSBC) is the licensing body for UBC’s Fellowships and requires passing scores for an English Proficiency test completed before licensure will be granted – see information here: https://www.cpsbc.ca/files/pdf/REG-ELP.pdf
Getting Your Credentials Verified: All International Medical Graduates (IMGs) must get their credentials verified through the Medical Council of Canada’s “Physicians apply” portal. This can take up to three months to achieve and is THE MOST IMPORTANT requirement for licensure – achieving this, supports your fellowship educational licensure approval which supports your visa/work permit for immigration– having this completed is a GREAT way to “put yourself above others” for consideration.
