For International Medical Graduates (IMGs)

1. Practice Ready Assessment (PRA-BC) Candidates

UBC CPD provides orientation phase 1 & 2 for new to BC physicians enrolled in the Practice Ready Assessment (PRA-BC) Program - a program providing qualified internationally educated physicians with an alternative pathway to medical licensure in British Columbia. The PRA-BC program is comprised of 2 phases: a two-part centralized assessment and the clinical field assessment (CFA) period. UBC CPD provides orientation for both of these.

2. Provisionally-Licensed Physicians

 Since its inception in 2008, UBC CPD’s BC Physician Integration Program (BC-PIP) has supported provisionally-licensed IMGs during their period of supervised practice in British Columbia.

IMPORTANT:
In 2016, UBC CPD will not be offering the BC-PIP IMG Orientation Conference. If you are interested in learning more about preparing for medical practice in the province of British Columbia, we suggest you consider enrolling for the annual Practice Survival Skills Conference hosted by UBC CPD in conjunction with the UBC Faculty of Medicine Division of Postgraduate Medical Education.

UBC CPD is proud to play a central role in orienting and preparing international medical graduates (IMGs) for success in diverse BC practice settings.
