    Hello!
    I've seen some posts discussing work in canada however want to get a clearer idea of where I can move to once I graduate! I am a final year podiatry student with the hope of moving to british columbia or alberta, specifically vancouver or calgary, after i graduate.

    I am currently in the process of canadian citizenship application (hopefully successful!) and want to know if my UK Bsc hons in podiatry will transfer to BC and alberta? Furthermore, what is the job situation like?

    Any information would be very much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Amanda

    Hello Amanda.
    BC and Alberta are specifically DPM (US qualification) only.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me! Really unfortunate that I can't practice there without undertaking further training though. I'm looking at DPM courses in USA at the moment however I am quite reluctant after 3 years training in the UK to undergo a further 4 years training in the USA!
    Is there any short courses/training programmes in the USA or Canada to supplement my UK degree and allow me to practice in BC and Alberta?

    Thanks,
    Amanda
