Obtain Licensing

After you have confirmed a candidate’s eligibility for licensure to practice medicine in BC, it is important for the recruiting practice and the candidate to be aware of the key steps and associated timeline to obtain the license.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC (CPSBC) website describes the licensing process and requirements. Granting licensure is based on several factors, ranging from candidate education, training, and practical experience, to character references and disciplinary action in order to ensure only qualified and capable physicians are granted licensure.
