This policy applies to all IMG clinical fellows holding a postgraduate education certificate issued under section 12 of the registration regulations. Under the regulation, the certificate terminates after two years. However, this policy enables the College to renew the certificate for three additional years, without the need for the College’s Registration Committee to approve the third, fourth or fifth year, provided the applicant continues to meet non-exemptible registration standards.
Under this policy, applicants may apply for an extension for a third, fourth and/or fifth year, but will require approval by the College.
The proposed third, fourth and/or fifth years must be in the same clinical fellowship program and enrollment must be continuous; the certificate automatically terminates at the end of the fifth year of the clinical fellowship.
