Important Notice - Change of MCCQE1 dates

Important Notice Sticky Note

Planning to write the MCCQE1? The Medical Council of Canada has made changes to the available MCCQE1 examination dates. Previously, there were dates announced for July 2022. However, they have cancelled the July dates and extended others. New dates: April 13- May 25, 2022; August 17 - September 21, 2022; and October 19 - November 9, 2022. The dates in May are expected to fill up quickly as graduates of Canadian medical schools register. When making your plans to write the exam and relocate to Canada, keep in mind it takes 8-10 weeks to receive your grades.

This means if you don’t write the MCCQE1 in May, then you will not be able to write until August and you may not know your exam results until October.


Canada Qualifies for the World Cup

Canada celebrated the sport of soccer Sunday as the Canadian men won qualification to the 2022 World Cup.

They did it in style, hammering an outmatched Jamaican side 4-0 on a frigid day at BMO Field to improve their CONCACAF qualifying record to 14-1-4 over three rounds and end a 36-year absence from the men's soccer showcase.

Qatar awaits this November and the rest of the world better watch out.

"We are the best team in CONCACAF," said midfielder Jonathan Osorio.

"Now people believe," added the Toronto FC veteran, shivering in the cold. "And it's incredible how much people believe. And it's only going to get better. Now we want to go to a World Cup and really make a statement."

April, the Month of Flowers

"There are so many things to love about the spring season in the garden - the songbirds singing, bees buzzing, and the fragrant scent of spring flowers. The longer days provide us with more time to enjoy the beauty that spring has to offer, and we do not need to bundle up while enjoying the flowers. Spring is the beginning of an entirely new growing season, and the long winter provides many gardeners a substantial amount of time to put their gardening plans into motion. If you are from a relatively mild climate, I'm sure that you appreciate spring just as much as we do here on Vancouver Island, and in many other locations across Canada."

Trouble Completing Your PhysiciansApply.ca Account?

As recruiters, we discovered that many physicians have difficulty supplying their information this online service. A simple error, like not scanning all four corners of a document can cause rejection. Which documents do you have notarized? How do you submit your documents?

We have created an explanatory video that is yours FREE, just by asking. Contact john@CanadaMedicalCareers.ca to receive your link!

If you are serious about practicing medicine in Canada the first thing you should do is open an account with PhysiciansApply.ca. It is an online portal operated under the auspices of the Medical Council of Canada (similar to the GMC in the UK). Every doctor coming to Canada must have an account. This is where your credentials must be verified. These credentials include your passport, medical degrees and more. Every province and territory of Canada has a regulatory authority to handle physician licensing and these authorities (Colleges) will need to access your PhysiciansApply.ca account before you can be licensed in Canada.

Don't wait! Some documents can be verified quickly, and others may take some time, especially if you attended medical school in a country that is slow to respond to inquiries from Canada.

If you are an IMG, licensing in Canada as a physician simply does not happen without a PhysiciansApply.ca account.

MRCGP and Family Practice Exams in Canada

The College of Family Physicians of Canada is the recognized licensing authority for family physicians in Canada. Those physicians coming from the UK, Ireland, Australia, or the USA will usually not have to write the examination required to practice as a General Practitioner in Canada. Verification of your MRCGP, MICGP, FRACGP, FACRRM, or DABFM will be required. For more information on this certification visit CFPC.ca and check out the Education and Professional Development section. Members in good standing will use the CCFP certification.

We like questions!
