Licensure in New Brunswick
For detailed rules, see Regulation No. 2, Registration and Licensing.

In brief, the following are eligible for licensure in New Brunswick:
  1. Physicians certified in Family Practice by the College of Family Physicians of Canada.

  2. Physicians certified in a specialty by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada or the College of Physicians of Québec.

  3. Physicians with the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada who have at least one year of training in an accredited Canadian or American program. This should generally be in the form of a rotating internship. (Graduates of 1993 or later require two years of training.)

  4. Physicians otherwise eligible for licensure in the Province of Quebec.

  5. In limited circumstances, physicians eligible for licensure in the State of Maine, or another American jurisdiction.

  6. A restricted license is available, in very limited circumstances, for certain foreign-trained physicians for direct employment by a hospital or institution.

Note: The requirements for a Locum tenens license are the same as that of a full license.
