Royal College

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada accredits medical residency programs in Canada and reviews foreign programs to help them adhere to the highest standards of higher medical education. The Royal College acknowledges the importance of health care accreditation by requiring that facilities are accredited by Accreditation Canada in order to host residency programs. In 2010, the Royal College signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Accreditation Canada International (now merged with Accreditation Canada) to collaborate on diverse international projects.
