Canada

This list is subject to change. If a country is not listed, contact the Medical Council of Canada. Only medical schools within these countries listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools http://www.who.int/hrh/documents/HRH_documents/en/index1.html or the International Medical Education Directory (IMED) http://imed.ecfmg.org/ are eligible. There may be minor differences in the names of the medical qualifications but, in general, these are the required qualifications. In the case of a discrepancy between the degree noted below and the World Directory of Medical Schools or IMED, the World Directory of Medical Schools and IMED will be taken as correct.

* NOTE: Any final medical diploma submitted that does not specify the name of the medical school of graduation must be accompanied by a certificate of graduation issued by the applicant's medical school. The certificate must be on official letterhead and, if applicable, be accompanied by a translation. All documents are to be certified (see instructions in Section 6 of this pamphlet). A certificate of graduation does not replace the requirement for the final diploma.
