Human Rights Case
There have been many attempts over the decades to level the playing field for graduates of international medical schools to provide a fair chance of accessing entry level jobs (called residency positions) necessary to practice medicine in Canada. There have been numerous briefs and reports written. What makes this initiative different is that the Alliance is supporting five doctors who are graduates of international medical schools who have filed a human rights case in BC. These doctors are building support across Canada to call on regulatory bodies to address the problems related to the application and selection of resident physicians that result in the exclusion of graduates of international medical schools from the medical profession.
