Necesitaría saber cuál sería el equivalente en Canadá. Por ahora puse Doctor of Medicine y voy a hacer una aclaración sobre los años de estudio, pero me gustaría conocer otras opiniones.

Gracias!

English translation:Doctor of Medicine
Explanation:
I don't think there's any question that this is the translation. Your text may be referring to additional rotations that are required.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_school_in_Canada
In Canada, a medical school is a faculty or school of a university that trains would-be medical doctors and usually offers a three- to five-year Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) or Doctor of Medicine and Master of Surgery (M.D., C.M.) degree.

Thinking more about it, it's clear to me that your text is referring to additional required years of study or internship/residency, but the name of the degree doesn't change. Anything else would be overly "creative."
