Ensuring Ontarians have access to the right number and mix of qualified health care providers through the following education and training programs:
Clinical Simulation Initiative
The Clinical Simulation Initiative is a program that provided funds to nursing schools to purchase clinical simulation equipment. This equipment, which is now in place in every nursing school in the province, gives students a broader range of clinical experience and build their skills and confidence before they enter the workforce.
Through the Re-Entry Program, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) offers funding each year for physicians currently practicing in Canada to re-enter postgraduate medical training.
Repatriation Program: Additional Postgraduate Medical Training Positions in Ontario
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care funds additional postgraduate medical training positions in Ontario to recruit physicians who have completed or partially completed postgraduate residency training outside Canada and require up to 2 years of training to meet the national certification requirements of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
