Evaluating Examination

The Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE) is a four-hour, computer-based examination offered in both English and French at more than 500 centres in 80 countries worldwide. International medical graduates, international medical students in their final clinical year and U.S. osteopaths must take the MCCEE as a prerequisite for eligibility to the MCC Qualifying Examinations.

The MCCEE is a general assessment of the candidate’s basic medical knowledge in the principal disciplines of medicine. It is also designed to assess the skills and knowledge required at the level of a new medical graduate who is about to enter the first year of supervised postgraduate training practice.

The computer-based MCCEE consists of 180 multiple-choice questions, each listing five possible answers of which only one is the correct or best answer. The MCCEE questions cover the following domains: Child Health, Maternal Health, Adult Health, Mental Health, and Population Health and Ethics. A number of questions in the examination will also have a focus on general practice. You can view an example of a multiple-choice question.

  • The number of days a particular centre runs depends on the maximum daily space capacity and the demand for that centre.
  • The number of days and specific dates a centre runs vary from centre to centre.
  • The specific days a centre runs depend on a number of factors including availability of their computer labs, and may not necessarily be consecutive days.
  • It is anticipated that the majority of the centres will mostly run on days in weeks 2 and/or 3; however, this is based on a number of factors including demand and space availability.
  • The examination may be taken in either English or French at any centre. However, staff and technical support may be limited to a specific language. Centres in Quebec will offer support primarily in French, whereas centres in the rest of the country offer support primarily in English. The exceptions are the Ottawa and Montréal centres, which offer support in both official languages.

Qualifying Examination Part II

The Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination Part II is a three-hour Objective-Structured Clinical Examination that assesses the competence of candidates, specifically the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for medical licensure in Canada prior to entry into independent clinical practice.

This examination consists of a series of five-minute and ten-minute clinical stations. At each station, a brief written statement introduces a clinical problem and directs the candidate to appropriately examine a standardized (simulated) patient as well as perform activities such as obtaining a focused history, conducting a focused physical examination, or assessing and addressing the patient’s issues. Candidates may be asked to answer specific questions related to the patient, interpret x-rays or the results of other investigations, make a diagnosis and/or write admission orders.

The Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination Part II includes problems in Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Preventive Medicine and Community Health, Psychiatry and Surgery, as well as in similar disciplines considered essential for competence in general medicine and health care.

Overview of the process of obtaining a licence to practise medicine for IMGs

The information below is geared to international medical graduates (IMGs) looking to begin the process of obtaining a licence to practise medicine in Canada. Individuals are always encouraged to contact the medical regulatory authority in the province or territory in which they would like to practise. They should also contact the international medical graduate program in the province they would like to practise, if such a program exists. We have included links to these organizations on our website.

There are general steps that IMGs should take before arriving in Canada, and steps they should take after their arrival.

Information for international medical graduates

The information below is geared to international medical graduates (IMGs) looking to begin the process of obtaining a licence to practise medicine in Canada. Individuals are always encouraged to contact the medical regulatory authority in the province or territory in which they would like to practise. They should also contact the international medical graduate program in the province they would like to practise, if such a program exists. We have included links to these organizations on our website.

Most health-care organizations refer to physicians who have received their medical education abroad as IMGs. The Medical Council of Canada defines an IMG as an individual who has graduated from a medical school not accredited in Canada or in the U.S. (by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools or by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education in the U.S.). Graduates of a U.S. School of Osteopathic Medicine accredited by the American Osteopathic Association are considered IMGs.

The term ‘international medical graduate’ can refer to physicians who come from a wide range of backgrounds. For example, an IMG may:

  • have several years of independent practice experience in his/her country
  • have just recently completed medical school
  •  have completed a residency training program
  • have gone directly into practice with no requirement for a residency
  • be from a country with a medical education system similar to Canada’s
  • be from a country whose medical education system is very different from Canada’s

Prior to commencing the licensure process in Canada, all IMGs will need to assess their circumstances and consider the following:

  • there is no guarantee of obtaining a licence to practise in Canada
  • the licensure process has many stages and can seem complex to those not familiar with the Canadian approach
  • there are differences in the registration processes between provinces and territories
  • there is a significant financial and personal commitment required to pursue licensure

Depending on the province/territory, licensure may involve:

  • a series of examinations (eligibility, program selection, qualifying, certification)
  • language proficiency tests
  • credentialing
  • postgraduate training/assessment
  • return-of-service agreements (practising in a underserviced community for an agreed upon period of time)

See the Registration to Practise Medicine in Canada chart for a general overview of the licensure steps. You can also review the process of obtaining a licence for steps you can take before arriving in Canada, and some steps you can take once in Canada.

The Working in Canada website also includes province and territory-specific information that may be of interest.

 

Steps IMGs can take before arriving in Canada

You can start the licensure process from outside Canada by:

  1. Confirming that your medical degree is from a recognized medical school.
  2. Taking an online self-assessment exam.
  3. Submitting your credentials with the Medical Council of Canada’s (MCC) Physician Credentials Repository.
  4. Taking the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE).
  5. Confirm that your medical degree is from a recognized medical school

Visit the International Medical Education Directory (IMED), part of the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research’s (FAIMER) website. Your medical school, the name of the medical degree and the year of your graduation must be listed on the FAIMER International Medical Education Directory to be accepted in Canada.

  1. Are you exam ready?

IMGs can test their readiness for the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE) through the Medical Council of Canada Self Administered Evaluating Examination (SAE – EE). IMGs who take the SAE – EE will receive the number of questions correctly answered as well as a percentile table that compares their performance to the results achieved by other MCCEE candidates.

Fees: C$62 per examination

  1. Submit your credentials

IMGs can use the MCC’s Physician Credentials Repository to establish a confidential professional electronic portfolio of their credentials prior to arriving in Canada. IMGs can request that the Repository share their portfolio with provincial/territorial medical regulatory authorities, certifying and qualifying bodies. The MCC requires IMGs who are applying for the first time to the MCCEE to open an application with the Physician Credentials Repository and send a certified copy of their final medical diploma. The diploma must be successfully source verified through the Repository for the candidate to be eligible to the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part II.

Fees: To open a Repository account, IMGs are charged a one-time account fee of C$250. C$100 is charged for each of the first four medical documents submitted for source verification. C$60 is charged for each subsequent document.

Note: Document fees are in addition to the account fee.

  1. Take the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE)

IMGs must pass the MCCEE to apply for a residency position through the Canadian Resident Matching Service. The MCCEE is offered in 500 sites in more than 70 countries. For a list of countries where the MCCEE is offered, please see Prometric centres — list of countries.

If IMGs have obtained Canadian or American board specialty certification, they may apply to the Medical Council of Canada for an exemption from the MCCEE.

Fees: First-time MCCEE candidates are charged C$1,550; C$1,300 is charged for IMGs who reapply for the MCCEE.

Note: The MCC requires all first-time MCCEE candidates to open an application with the MCC’s Physician Credentials Repository and send a certified copy of their medical diploma.

Exams available once in Canada

All provinces have the right to request additional assessments to qualify for residency positions in their province. These assessments may include the National Assessment Collaboration Objective Structured Clinical Examination (NAC OSCE), which is only administered in Canada. Candidates must take the MCCEE before being eligible to take the NAC OSCE, and certain jurisdictions may add region-specific eligibility criteria or may require the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination Part I for certain provincially funded training positions.

IMGs may be required to pass the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE)Part I and Part II (additional fees apply). Candidates may also take a self-assessment exam to help prepare for the multiple-choice component of the MCCQE Part I. This self-assessment is offered over the Internet and can be completed prior to arriving in Canada. The MCCQE Part I and the MCCQE Part II are administered in Canada and are the same requirements for graduates from Canadian faculties of medicine. All jurisdictions also require a minimum of two years of postgraduate training for licensure. When IMGs pass the MCCQE Part II, they are awarded the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada. The Licentiate is required for candidates to meet the Canadian Standard for full licensure, as defined through the Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada.
