Dr. Cyrus Salimi

Dr. Cyrus Salimi is a graduate of The University of Tehran who moved to Canada to pursue his medical career in the mid-1990’s. At that time, only 24 positions were available for the IMGs in Ontario which made it very challenging for IMGs to enter the system.  After experiencing a lot of disappointment, most IMGs gave up.  Dr. Salimi  pursued his goals knowing that it might be  difficult challenge.  As he puts it:  “Sometimes  I thought I should give up, but something inside me  told me to keep going.”   After passing the required exams for IMGs, Dr. Salimi was admitted to McMaster University and finished his specialty training in Internal Medicine. He then further  advanced his career  by obtaining a sub-specialty training position in Rheumatology at McMaster University.  To date,  he has  helped hundreds of IMGs pass their Canadian exams and enter the system successfully.
