Yes, it has the same weight as the US externships.

Also, they recognize Canadian graduates just like how they recognize US graduates.

You want to make sure that you carefully read the requirements for each residency before applying. Some programs may consider North American clinical experience, while other programs only want US clinical experience. If the program is only looking for U.S.clinical experience, then your externships in Canada will be considered. --Reviewed by: ED
