As Canada continues to face a critical shortage of medical doctors, a growing number of Canadian students who receive their medical training abroad at Global University Systems Canada’s (GUS Canada) medical programmes are helping to close the gap.
According to the 2022 Canadian Occupational Projection System, Canada is projected to face a shortage of over 44,000 physicians by 2028, with rural and remote areas being particularly hard hit. The growing number of Canadian students who study abroad and receive their medical training at GUS Canada’s medical programmes – including its leading institution SABA University School of Medicine (SABA) – offers one solution to address this crisis. Given that only 20% of Canadian medical school applicants are accepted, SABA provides qualified students with an opportunity to pursue their medical education and return to practice in Canada if they wish.
“SABA-trained medical students have consistently demonstrated their ability to excel in residency programmes and fill important roles in healthcare institutions across the country,” said Sandra Banner, Dormer CEO of Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) and current Medical Education Systems Consultant across Canada. “SABA is well recognised as one of the top international schools whose graduates match back into Canada.”Click below to share this article
