College of Physicians and Surgeons of NL

All learners must apply for education registration in order to have their name placed on the Education Register of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador (the College).

Using the email address provided on your CaRMS application, the College will email you a list of required items, including an individual username and password for their online application.

Due to this year's compressed timelines, it is imperative that applications and all supporting documentation be submitted to the College as soon as possible. To facilitate your registration it is recommended you take care of the following immediately:

  • Criminal Record/Vulnerable Sector Check
  • Professional Liability/Medical Protective Coverage (CMPA)
  • Notarization of MD Diploma (upon receipt)

As the start of residency training is contingent on registration with the College, individuals who have an incomplete application as of Friday, June 24, may not be permitted to start training on July 1. 

International medical graduates are reminded that registration with the College also requires document source verification via physiciansapply.ca. The College will provide complete information regarding these requirements with your login information. You are advised to apply to physiciansapply.ca as soon as possible as this can take several weeks to complete.

If for some reason you are deemed ineligible for the College's Education Register, your position in postgraduate medical education at Memorial University will be revoked.
