MCCEE

The Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE) is a four-hour computer-based examination offered in both English and French at more than 500 centers in 73 countries worldwide. International medical graduates, international medical students in their final clinical year and U.S. osteopaths must take the MCCEE as a prerequisite for eligibility to the MCC Qualifying Examinations.

The MCCEE is a general assessment of the candidate's basic medical knowledge in the principal disciplines of medicine. It is also designed to assess the skills and knowledge required at the level of a new medical graduate who is about to enter the first year of supervised postgraduate training or practice.

The computer-based MCCEE consists of 175 multiple-choice questions, each listing five possible answers of which only one is the correct or best answer. The MCCEE questions cover the following domains: Child Health, Maternal Health, Adult Health, Mental Health, and Population Health and Ethics. A number of questions in the examination will also have a focus on general practice.

This component of the examination is designed to assess a candidate's knowledge in the following general areas: 1) Internal Medicine, 2) Surgery, 3) Pediatrics, 4) Obstetrics and Gynecology, 5) Psychiatry, and 6) Population health and the considerations of the legal, ethical and organizational aspects of the practice of medicine.

This CDM component is designed to assess problem solving and clinical decision making skills. Candidates will be presented with case descriptions followed by one or more test questions that assess key issues in the resolution of the case. Candidates may be asked to elicit clinical information, order diagnostic procedures, make diagnoses or prescribe therapy. Their decisions should reflect the management of an actual patient.

MCCQE Part 2

The Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination Part II is a three-hour Objective-Structured Clinical Examination that assesses the competence of candidates, specifically the knowledge, skills and attitudes essential for medical licensure in Canada prior to entry into independent clinical practice.

This examination consists of a series of five-minute and ten-minute clinical stations. At each station, a brief written statement introduces a clinical problem and directs the candidate to appropriately examine a standardized (simulated) patient as well as perform activities such as obtaining a focused history, conducting a focused physical examination, or assessing and addressing the patient’s issues. Candidates may be asked to answer specific questions related to the patient, interpret x-rays or the results of other investigations, make a diagnosis and/or write admission orders.

The Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination Part II includes problems in Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Preventive Medicine and Community Health, Psychiatry and Surgery, as well as in similar disciplines considered essential for competence in general medicine and health care.
