Academic Certification

The Royal College Academic Certification program is intended to assist Canadian faculties of medicine and universities in the recruitment and retention of exceptional international specialists as full-time academic faculty at the rank of full or associate professor, when recruitment of qualified Royal College certificants has been unsuccessful. The program is particularly aimed at facilitating the recruitment of clinician scientists & researchers, clinician administrators/leaders and clinical educators. This program, first introduced in 1967, has been amended from time to time to take into account changes in the Canadian academic scene. Academic Certification is granted in specialties and subspecialties recognized by the Royal College, and confers eligibility for the Royal College examinations in the specialty/subspecialty concerned.
