7 Faculty of Medicine : 7.3 Programs of Study, Admission and Curriculum : 7.3.7 Registration Procedures : Requirements for License
Candidates accepted for admission are reminded that it is their personal responsibility to ensure that they fulfil all the licensing requirements of the country in which they intend to practise medicine. A university degree does not confer the right to practise. In each province of Canada, in each one of the United States, and in all other countries, the authority to license is vested in a licensing body which has its own special laws and requirements. In many cases a special standard of general education is insisted upon before beginning the study of medicine. One of the requirements in several provinces is that the entrance qualifications of the student must be registered with the provincial licensing body for five years or more before a licence to practise can be obtained.
Candidates accepted for admission should therefore communicate as soon as possible with the licensing body of the country, province or state in which they intend to practise and obtain from that licensing body the necessary instructions.
Candidates wishing to practise medicine in the province of Quebec must also meet the French language requirement for professionals, as described in the General University Information section 3.9.1 “Language Requirements for Professions”.
