BC will recognize licenses of more internationally trained doctors to tackle the physician shortage issue

British Columbia has unveiled a series of measures to bring more medical professionals into the province to address the growing physician shortage and reduce emergency department overcrowding.

Premier David Eby affirmed that by March 2024, the number of Practice Ready Assessment (PRA) program spots would be tripled from 32 to 96- ensuring access to high-quality health care for all residents.

In addition, the program provides the opportunity for family doctors who are educated abroad to become licensed in the province, adding more physicians to rural and urban communities via a three-year mandatory service obligation.
