On January 16, 2023, CPSA launched a 5-year pilot project to condense the Practice Readiness Assessment process for IMGs with training comparable to that obtained in Canadian universities, as identified by experts in postgraduate medical training. The goal of the pilot is to evaluate whether certain IMGs may begin independently practising in their identified communities faster, while still ensuring patient safety is the top priority.
