The article reports on the backlog of international medical graduates waiting for residencies in Canada. Dr. Joshua Thambiraj, president of the Association of International Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario stated that only around 20% of qualified international medical graduates in the province had their residencies yearly. However, a logical solution for this dilemma will be completed by putting a moratorium on foreign visa within two or three years. Furthermore, the international medical graduates suggest that a temporary moratorium on internships for foreign visa trainees is necessary for the training of doctors who want to stay in Canada.
