Legal & Policy
UBC says it lacks the physician resources to train more resident,s but it sells residency positions to oil rich countries
Canada has a two class system for entry into medicine
Canada’s two class system is an erosion of Canadian rights to freedom
Entry into the Medical Profesison is Not Based on Merit
Entry into the Medical Profession is Controlled by the Universities
Medical graduates from oil rich countries can buy their way into the medical profession but Canadians cannot.
Public Safety is at Risk
The current medical school admissions system discriminates against the poor and the lower middle class
The current system which discriminates against CSAs, costs more.
UBC says it lacks the physician resources to train more residents
We hire foreign doctors, while forcing CSAs to emigrate
UBC SAYS IT LACKS THE PHYSICIAN RESOURCES TO TRAIN MORE RESIDENT PHYSICIANS, BUT IT SELLS RESIDENCY POSITIONS TO OIL RICH COUNTRIES.
There is money to fund more residency positions to meet Canada’s doctor shortage.
But UBC says it does not have the physician resources to train more resident physicians.
UBC collected $7.13 million in the last academic year from medical graduates from oil rich countries.
UBC uses our publicly funded doctors to train these oil rich medical graduates in the positions that we need for Canadians.
These oil rich medical graduates under contracts with the people who pay their way to return to their home country.
Some people are under the misapprehension that the $75,000 per oil rich medical graduate is used to subsidize the Canadian residency program.
The funding letters between the Ministry of Health and UBC show that
income from the fees charged to oil rich medical graduates is used to offset costs of training Canadian medical residents.
The only subsidy for medical residency training for Canadians in BC is from Health Canada, which pays $2.8 million dollars per year as an incentive to train international medical graduates.
