Trained as a doctor of medicine, accredited in Clinical Research

I was amazed to learn that ACEM helps new immigrants to overcome the initial obstacles while trying to establish in Canada. I wanted to upgrade my skills by doing a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research at McGill University. ACEM helped me provide the financial support in the form of a loan with a minimal prime rate which was extremely handy.
