Saskatchewan International Physician Practice Assessment (SIPPA)
The Saskatchewan International Physician Practice Assessment (SIPPA) is the new process for assessing family medicine International Medical Graduates' (IMGs) readiness to practise in Saskatchewan. The assessment will ensure that family medicine IMGs have the appropriate mix of academic knowledge, technical skills, and clinical judgement to provide safe patient care.
As of January 1, 2011, all IMGs will be required to take this Saskatchewan-based assessment before practising in the community to which they were recruited.
