Hey Sneha, how are you doing?

Let me start by assuring you that you do not necessarily need a course to pursue in order to settle in Canada as a doctor. And also, kudos for making the decision that fits current demands. Yes, your timing could not be any better. Doctors are in huge demand in Canada, not just because of covid-19 mishappening. Healthcare in Canada is growing fast and every year countless new jobs are coming.

But yes like any other country, you will have to fulfil a few criteria if you seek settlement in Canada. And with no surprise, the primary requirement is to get a valid medical license for the province you wish to settle in. You will also have to go through a few examinations by MCCQE based on your profile. But judging that you are a doctor, I guess it's alright. 

Still, if you need a few pointers on courses for a doctor in Canada, I have a few words. Popular course choices are natural science, humanities,  engineering and medicines & health. See what fits your interests and convenience. 

Let me know if you want me to give you details about any of these courses.
