Philippine International Doctors United

PIDrU is a support group for immigrant Filipino doctors.  Members include Filipino physicians in Canada who are currently in residency training and those who are practicing, licensed doctors.

The group provides assistance in exam preparation for medical licensure and assistance in seeking employment in the healthcare field.  These goals are achieved through workshops on job interviews, orientation sessions on how to obtain medical licensure, and by sharing employment information in the healthcare field. PIDrU has a strong relationship with the FCMA, which provides mentorship opportunities.
