Saba has been working with Canadian students for many years securing clinical rotations all across Canada. These rotations take place during the elective phase of their education. The process and timing in some ways mirrors that in the U.S., but there are nuances, and Saba works closely with its Canadian students to ensure that each is aware of the process and is able to target rotations appropriate to his or her line of study.
Saba has been among the most successful international medical schools in placing Canadian students into residencies in Canada.
Canadian students are eligible to participate in both the U.S. National Resident Matching Program (NRMP)* and the Canadian Residency Matching Service (CaRMS), which take place on different schedules.
To be eligible to participate in CaRMS, Canadian students must pass the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) and have written and passed, or be scheduled to write, the National Assessment Collaboration (NAC) Examination by the September prior to the CaRMS match.
Specific rules on matching in Canada do vary from province to province. Please visit the CaRMS website for more detail.

To help ensure that fluctuations in currency rates do not impede your education at Saba University School of Medicine (“SUSOM”) all Canadian students matriculating on or after the Fall 2021 term are eligible for a CA$ exchange rate lock so long as they are actively enrolled. Students also benefit in future periods to the extent the Canadian $ strengthens relative to the US $. This offer applies to students that matriculate starting in the September 2021 semester or later.
