In 2003, examinations will be held over approximately a two-week period in the spring and one-week period in the fall. The faculties of medicine will choose the consecutive days for their respective center. In general, the days will be within the published dates below. However, the actual dates available will not necessarily be the entire period and, in some cases, depending on the total number of registrants, may extend prior to or beyond these dates. The dates for each center will be posted on the MCC Website as they are determined, approximately one month prior to the start of on-line scheduling. Candidates are encouraged to check the MCC Website.
