Included in this program, we have service-purchase agreements with a number of foreign governments to train their specialist physicians, as well as an upgrading program for International Medical Graduates prior to their working in Manitoba. More than 800 faculty are involved in the training of these junior physicians, frequently maintaining full time practices in addition to clinical, research and teaching commitments.
