A new program led by DLSPH and DFCM teaches internationally trained medical doctors Canadian healthcare principles and prepares learners for career transition opportunities in healthcare.

ITMD learners follow the same curriculum as students with a clinical license in Canada: They have one and a half elective credits, six mandatory credits and a 160 hours practicum. Of the mandatory requirements, they must complete two public health courses, a seminar course on social, political and scientific issues in family medicine, a research course and a system leadership course.
