Saskatchewan relies on the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (Royal College) to determine if a specialist’s training is recognized. Please contact the Royal College to find out what you need to do to become eligible to write their examinations and become certified.
You can review the list of accepted jurisdictions by following this link and find out more about the practice eligibility route.
In addition, the Royal College has very specific training requirements. If your training was provided in an approved jurisdiction then you must review the training requirements by your specialty/sub-specialty to determine if you meet the requirements.
Inquiries respecting the requirements of the Royal College for eligibility and certification should be directed to the College directly.
Once you receive confirmation of eligibility, your next step will be to contact us and we will provide details related to how apply to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CPSS). Registration information is available from the CPSS website.
If you do not meet the requirements as defined by the Royal College, you will need to pursue entry into a residency program in Canada. For more information regarding the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) and the eligibility requirements for each specialty and school visit.
