An open letter to our Saudi colleagues in training

The SOGC is very saddened by the recall of Saudi trainees from our postgraduate and graduate programs across the country.

Over the past decades our programs have enjoyed the presence of the many men and women from Saudi Arabia.  You have been good colleagues to Canadian trainees, opened doors of understanding between our countries, provided excellent care to Canadian patients, and remained esteemed colleagues upon your return home.

We regret the circumstances that have led to this abrupt departure, and hope that you will take with you our fervent wishes for every success in your careers, and our thanks for the many contributions that you and your predecessors have made while in Canada. We sincerely hope there will be an opportunity to collaborate again in the future.
