What is the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination?

The Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) is the two-part official evaluation which assesses medical graduates’ ability to practise medicine in Canada.  You must take and pass both the MCCQE Part I and the MCCQE Part 2 to obtain the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC). The MCCQE Part I  examines participants’ medical knowledge and clinical decision-making ability in 210 multiple choice questions. The MCCQE Part 2 is a two-day examination that consists of evaluations at a series of clinical stations.

The exam consists of two parts: a multiple choice question (MCQ) written exam, and a clinical skills component.
