I am Canadian attending school in the usa and I was interested in doing med/peds. Does anyone know if with this residency would I be able to practise in Canada? Also are these residencies accepting of Canadians ?

From what I understand, Canadian specialty boards will only credit you partial years of training.

e.g. for Med-Peds which is 4 years total in the USA, they will credit you 2 years of internal medicine and 2 years of pediatrics. Given that both pediatrics and internal medicine are 4 years in Canada, you wouldn't be able to write your Royal College exams for either.

You can email the royal college of physicians and surgeons directly for further information.
