International Medical Graduates and Supervisors/Assessors

UBC CPD supports International Medical Graduates (IMG) and Assessors/Supervisors through the Practice Ready Assessment - British Columbia (PRA-BC) and BC Physician Integration Program (BC-PIP). Our goal is to support IMGs and their assessors/supervisors at all stages in their journey from orientation and beyond.


1. Practice Ready Assessment British Columbia (PRA-BC)

In collaboration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC and the BC Government's Ministry of Health, UBC CPD is supporting a process for assessing family medicine IMGs' readiness to enter supervised practice before they settle into their new community. UBC CPD provides an orientation conference for PRA-BC candidates and supports assessors of PRA-BC candidates.

2. BC Physician Integration Program (BC-PIP)

The program provides support for provisionally-licensed IMGs, including a mandatory one-day orientation conference (offered twice a year) and online modules.
