EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS

The educational requirements to enter the examination, which are subject to change without notification, are as follows:

• GRADUATES OF INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL SCHOOLS (IMGs) must have completed all didactic and practical requirements to obtain the final qualification of Doctor of Medicine or equivalent qualification (see Appendix A for specific credentials for each country) and be in receipt of the final medical diploma from the university that granted their medical degree. The medical diploma must entitle the candidate, with appropriate postgraduate training, to be licensed to practice as a physician in his/her country. The university granting the degree must be listed in either the
WHO World Directory of Medical Schools: http://www.who.int/hrh/documents/HRH_documents/en/index1.html or the FAIMER International Medical Education Directory: http://imed.ecfmg.org/.

• The final medical diploma, in the original language, and a translation in English or French, if applicable, are required. (See Sections 6(G) and (H) for Translation and Certification requirements). “Certificates of graduation” are not acceptable unless accompanied by an originally signed letter from the university confirming that the document is considered to be the final diploma and that no further document is issued.

Note: As of 2004, and through the services of the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) International Credentialing Service, the MCC will be verifying the medical diploma with the appropriate officials of the medical school that issued the diploma for all MCCEE candidates. To this end, MCC shall transmit to ECFMG, the organization that the MCC has currently contracted for this service, all required personal information, i.e. that which relates to a natural person, and permits the identification of that person, as well as MCC Candidate information, including, without limitation, the following: Candidate code number, name, name change document if applicable, date of birth, sex, country of birth, university of graduation, date of graduation, medical degree diploma issue date, diploma or other related document, translation if applicable, and photograph. Transcripts, postgraduate training certificates and the medical license may also be submitted for verification, however this would be at the candidate’s expense. Please refer to the MCC Website (www.mcc.ca) for the request form and instructions. The MCC reserves the right to consult with other educational and licensing authorities to verify a candidate’s documents and qualifications. Furthermore, should documents submitted be deemed to be fraudulent, the MCC shall notify other appropriate regulatory and certifying authorities and may take action against the applicant as outlined in the application declaration.

• STUDENTS OF INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL SCHOOLS (IMSs) may apply for the MCCEE if they are (i) in the final clinical year of medical school and fully expected to graduate within nine (9) months following the date of the examination session for which they are applying, AND (ii) intending to register for postgraduate medical training in Canada through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) or other arrangement. (Note: Confirmation of registration for CaRMS will be required for the MCCQE Part I if still applying as a student.)

• Candidates with a U.S. School of Osteopathic Medicine Doctor of Osteopathy diploma must have graduated from a school accredited by the American Osteopathic Association.

• Canadian citizens who are IMGs or IMSs must also comply as stated above.

• Acceptable international degree/university qualifications for the MCCEE are listed in Appendix A of this pamphlet. However, you must ensure that your school and graduation year are listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools and/or the International Medical Education Directory (see first paragraph of this section above for Website addresses). If the name of the university has changed since graduating, please provide the most recent name as well.
