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 and completing a 2-year-fellowship position in Rheumatology at McMaster University. Dr. Salimi practiced as a rheumatologist both in Ontario and Nova Scotia and he is also American Board Certified in internal medicine. Currently he spends most of his time assisting IMGs through planning and teachings. To date,  he has  helped hundreds of IMGs pass their Canadian exams and enter the system successfully.
