Practice Ready Assessment Program in Family Medicine

The Nova Scotia Practice Ready Assessment Program (NSPRAP) is an assessment program for international medical graduates (IMGs) who:

  • have completed residencies in family medicine outside of Canada; and
  • are unable to meet Nova Scotia licensing requirements.

Participants who have successfully completed the NSPRAP may then apply to the College for a Defined licence to practice medicine in Nova Scotia with a pathway to Full licensure.

Are you eligible to apply?

NSPRAP operates under the auspices of the Dalhousie Department of Family Medicine  with the financial support of the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness and in collaboration with the Nova Scotia Health Authority and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia.
