OzTREKK Applicants Learn their options following graduation from an Australian Medical School
Studying medicine for at least four years halfway across the world is no small decision.
That’s why OzTREKK wants to ensure our Canadian student applicants have
the most up-to-date knowledge about their options to practise medicine following graduation.
Last year we hosted our first OzTREKK Medical Licensing and Residency Workshops, where we travelled across Canada, and outlining the post-graduate options for a Canadian studying medicine abroad. The students appreciated the workshops
so much that we decided to do it again this year.
From June 14 to 18, OzTREKK‘s Matt Miernik and Cathy McNally travelled to Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Ottawa, to outline the options available to Canadian students studying medicine in Australia.
Whether they want to return to Canada or remain in Australia, those who attended our workshop learned about the avenues to practise medicine. At OzTREKK, we found it difficult to gain straight forward information about their options following graduation, so we did our research and broke down the process for our applicants and their families.
This year we also brought in many more guest speakers. We welcomed a number of provincial representatives who spoke at three of the five workshops, outlining the particular options available to the applicants in their respective province. The speakers brought a great element to the workshops, because they are well versed in the international medical graduate field.
So what exactly did we talk about at these workshops?
-The Australian Medical School Systems
-The Canadian Residency Matching Service (CaRMS) program
- Provincially-specific programs available to International Medical Graduates
- The Australian Internship and Residency Program
Students and their families had the opportunity to ask any questions about studying medicine in Australia, and obtaining a residency after their program completion.
