MCCQE Review and Exam Part 1
Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Exam
At the end of the final year of the MD program, medical students are given the opportunity to write the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Exam (MCCQE) Part I. The MCCQE Part I is a one-day, computer-based test that assesses the competence of candidates who have obtained their medical degree, for entry into supervised clinical practice in postgraduate training programs. The MCCQE Part I assesses knowledge, clinical skills and attitudes as outlined by the Medical Council of Canada’s Objectives. Students must pass the MCCQE Part I to obtain the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC).
Students are required to register in order to write the exam. Registration for the spring exam is typically available online from the fall through the beginning of January. Refer to the MCC website for further details.
There will be a five-day review session at the Medical Education Centre, in the weeks preceding the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination.
Please note that this review course is not mandatory and it is not part of the Advanced Procedural Competencies Course (which is part of the curriculum).
