Description

The broad goal of this workshop is to create a space for teachers and educators of International Medical Graduates (IMGs) to enhance their understanding around the changing landscape of IMGs and also to identify the challenges faced by faculty in the learning environment. The workshop will provide an overview of the diversity of IMG learners and share common approaches to help prepare faculty members to critically observe, effectively question, and appropriately assess this unique group of learners. It will include insights from an innovative, research-based IMG mentorship program (for both immigrant & Canadian IMG residents) which has helped identify challenges and opportunities faced by this unique and diverse group of learners. We will engage in rich discussion and learn from each other’s experiences
