There are many excellent points made in this article. Speaking from my own experience, as a Canadian who went aboard for medical school, I am not ashamed to admit that soo many of us struggled to find residency in the Canadian Healthcare system. 3500 IMG are fighting over the 100 positions through CaRMS. I really hope to see the government create more opportunities for IMGs (international medical graduates) and in turn reduce the waiting time for all.
For-profit residency training could be the solution to the funding deficit. We have already spent 5 years and $300K on medical school aboard; it made sense to take out a $100K/year loan for the next few years to complete residency training. After all, I have seen so many talented minds wasted.
Neither the WAIT of our patients nor the WASTE of talented IMGs shall be the norm of this country.
