MTE Clinical Observership


Canadian observerships provide internationally trained medical graduates (IMGs) invaluable learning experience as well as an opportunity to network in the medical community. During these observerships, many IMGs are able to enhance their skills and get familiar with the Canadian workplace culture.

IMGs may also identify transferable skills that they can utilize to fine employment opportunities in a non-regulated alternative healthcare sector while preparing for their Canadian licensing examinations and/or applying for postgraduate training in Canada.

We are able to accommodate a limited number of observerships every month.
