Immigrant Doctors in Canada – Lifting Red Tape to Timely, Safe Accreditation of Healthcare Professionals
Watch the Webinar
Across the world, COVID-19 is upending the healthcare systems of both developed and developing countries. In many of these countries, staff at clinics and hospitals are stretched thin, while a vast pool of immigrant and refugee physicians, nurses and other support staff wait on the sidelines.
Many of these foreign-trained healthcare professionals wish to help, but are prevented from doing so by expensive and multi-year accreditation processes. Now, professional bodies and governments alike are reconsidering the red tape involved in recertification.
This webinar takes listeners from New York to Paris, and the British Parliament to British Columbia, where new ideas are beginning to break-down the barriers to a volunteer army of healthcare providers.
Led by Robert Falconer, Research Associate at the School of Public Policy, this FREE 30-minute webinar will provide listeners with statistics on the estimated number of immigrant and refugee healthcare professionals across provinces, and discuss how policymakers can rapidly move to include newcomers in the fight against COVID-19.
There is no cost to register. Webinar will be hosted via Zoom. Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues that may be interested.
