Collaborations and special projects

To meet the evolving health-care needs of the Canadian public, the Medical Council of Canada (MCC) has expanded the scope of its activities to take on special projects and to participate in collaborations with sister organizations. These initiatives include:

National Assessment Collaboration

The National Assessment Collaboration (NAC) is an alliance of Canadian organizations streamlining the evaluation process for international medical graduates (IMGs) seeking a licence to practise medicine in Canada.

NAC practice-ready assessment (PRA)

Partners from across the country are developing a pan-Canadian practice-ready assessment process for IMGs seeking a provisional licence to enter independent practice. The project has received funding from Health Canada for design and development activities.

Medical Council of Canada Blueprint project

As the delivery of health care evolves rapidly, so, too, are the competencies that are expected medical professionals. The Blueprint Project is a substantial review to evaluate how well the Medical Council of Canada’s (MCC) examinations reflect the reality of medical practice and the health-care needs of society today.

MCC 360 – Multisource Feedback project

The Medical Council of Canada (MCC) is collaborating on a national multi-source feedback project leveraging the Physician Achievement Review (PAR) questionnaires and reporting templates.
