MCCQE Part II Exam Now Offered Virtually!

Fantastic news!

The Medical Council of Canada is changing to a virtual exam delivery for the MCCQE Part II, to begin in May 2021. The MCC plans to offer the exam over 20 days including weekdays and weekends in May and June 2021.

At this time, they will not be accepting new applications for the May/June 2021 session of the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part II. Priority will be given to those who were not able to write their exam due to the postponed exams in May and October 2020 and February 2021 since many now have a provisional, temporary or restricted license. They will also prioritize access to those further along in their training, including those who have completed all requirements for licensure except for being awarded the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC), which requires a pass result for the MCCQE Part II.

According to the MCC, only when the delayed candidates have been processed will new registrations be accepted in future sessions.

It is important for new applicants to get in line as soon as possible, so that your application will be in the queue for future sessions. notified when pre-application to a future session opens

Canada’s health practitioner licencing system is not standardized across the country. That’s where Physicians for You’s expertise comes in. They provide doctors with step-by-step guidance on how and when to apply to the various regulatory medical colleges and licencing authorities, what to do before and after applying for assessments, and at the later stages, when to apply for a work permit. IMG candidates looking for roles in Canada are provided with complete guidance that makes the job search and licencing process a less daunting experience. Physicians For You has helped many Doctors from the USA, the UK, Australia, New Zealand & South Africa to find jobs across Canada. They work with family physicians and specialists who are either already fully licenced in Canada or are CCFP or RCPSC eligible meaning their training is considered on par with Canadian training.

Physician roles are available in rural communities, towns, and cities, and their job board helps job seekers look for career pursuits that match their lifestyle and interests. They have job opportunities in family practice and walk-in clinics, multidisciplinary medical facilities, specialty practice settings, community health centers, and hospitals. Technology is also changing the healthcare landscape, and virtual care is now an integral component of services provided in medical facilities across the country.

International medical graduate candidates looking for general practitioner jobs in Canada should have postgraduate training from the UK, Ireland, Australia, USA, as is recognized by The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC). Specialist physicians require postgraduate training from Australia, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States to be eligible with The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Canada (RCPSC).
