How to apply to the MCCQE Part II

In order to be able to apply to the MCCQE Part II, you must add your name to a pre-application list during the designated pre-application period through your physiciansapply.ca account. For approximate pre-application period dates, see Examination at a glance.

We will be randomly selecting applicants from the pre-application list, based on available exam capacity. If you are selected, you will receive an invitation to apply through your physiciansapply.ca account.

During the application process, you will be asked to choose up to three exam centres in order of preference. The MCC will make every attempt to accommodate your centre preference(s). If you choose only one centre, your likelihood of being assigned to it does not improve.

If the MCC has previously reviewed all the necessary documentation, you may receive quick notification that your MCCQE Part II application has been accepted. Otherwise, please allow up to three weeks for your application to be processed.
