Consider making a difference in the Canadian medical landscape

Striving to achieve the highest level of medical care in Canada through excellence in assessment of physicians

The Medical Council of Canada (MCC) has a legislated national mandate to assure Canadians that their doctors, wherever they are in Canada and whatever their medical specialty, meet the same demanding and consistent quality standards.
As part of our mandate, we are responsible for:

  • Providing the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC) qualification for entry into practice
  • Initiating and promoting, with partners, a national integrated strategy of assessment of physicians throughout their career
  • Initiating and promoting innovation, research and development in assessment and evaluation
  • Maintaining the Canadian Medical Register and promoting, with partners, the development of a national registry
  • Maintaining and promoting liaison with competent provincial, national and international organizations in assessment and evaluation
  • Maintaining the MCC’s standing as an open, transparent, responsive and accountable organization

Being part of these exams is a rewarding experience that allows me to give back to the medical profession.

It’s rewarding to work with other committee members in making sure that all of the exam questions are contributing in some meaningful and valid way to assessing each candidate’s ability.
