    Hello everyone,

    I am Indonesia graduated doctor, I have plan to apply residency in Phillippines. So far the regulation for foreign medical graduated is no allowance to follow the board certification by the phillippines college of specialty (in my case, surgery) and the foreign trainee only get "certificate of residency".

    My question is, since I do not have plan to go back to Indonesia:

    1. Can I follow any fellowship after residency with the certificate of residency?
    2. Does this certificate are acceptable or recognize in Australia, Canada or American medical system?

    I want to make a good decision before going to the residency, so I hope someone can explain it to me.

    Thank you.

    It won't be recognized in Canada or the US for sure. Canada and the US only recognize Canadian or American residency training.

    They won't even recognize UK, Australia training.
