MCC 360: For Physicians

Welcome to MCC 360!

You may have been notified by your College or health institution that you’ve been selected to complete this program, or you may be interested in self-selecting for your own professional development.

All physicians completing MCC 360 are eligible for 3 credits per hour of CPD credits from the Royal College (Assessment or Accredited/Certified) or CFPC (Mainpro+).

“MCC 360 is part of our continual learning experience as physicians. It gives us a true picture of our individual practice. After receiving my report, the review with a facilitator was very worthwhile. Even after 46 years in medical practice, I found that there are always areas for improvement.”

—Dr. John Bradley, MCC 360 physician participant

Why participate?

Participating in MCC 360 is an opportunity to self-reflect on your role as communicator, collaborator and professional. You are encouraged to reflect on your own performance rather than compare your performance to that of your peers. The feedback provided in the MCC 360 report is intended for self-improvement purposes and offers insights into existing strengths as well as tangible information you can use to improve your practice.

The benefits

 

  • You will receive individualized feedback specific to your practice
  • The report will include valuable narrative comments from your physician colleagues, non-physician co-workers and patients
  • This program is always paired with scheduled time with a peer-physician feedback facilitator, to help interpret the feedback, highlight areas for development, and build a personal action plan
  • The program promotes an environment of positive change that is favourable for better teamwork, along with fostering improved communication with your patients, colleagues, and co-workers
  • The surveys and your report are delivered by the MCC, an expert in physician assessment

Time Commitment

 

MCC 360 requires minimal time commitment, approximately:

  • Up to 1 hour: Account creation and online self-assessment. Provide us with colleague and co-worker contact information.
  • Up to 1 hour: Request patient feedback and return completed forms to MCC
  • Up to 1 hour: Review your report and reflect

All physicians completing MCC 360 are eligible for 3 credits per hour of CPD credits from the Royal College (Assessment or Accredited/Certified) or CFPC (Mainpro+).

It is estimated that physicians selected to complete MCC 360 by their College or health institution would earn on average up to 12 credits, while physicians self-selecting for their own professional development would earn on average up to 15 credits.

NOTE: Each physician should only claim the credits for the time they actually devoted to the activity.

The MCC will provide you with as much support as you need throughout this process.

Coaching

For physicians self-selecting to participate in MCC 360, one-on-one coaching is provided through our partnership with Saegis, a subsidiary of the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). Customized coaching by experienced facilitators allows you to view the results in an objective and constructive manner, and includes the development of a personalized action plan.

“This is an educational tool that you will learn from. You will learn some of the really positive things that you already incorporate, and you will also learn some of the things that could make your practice that much more fulfilling for you, and for the patients that you serve.”

—Dr. Shelley Howk, Peer feedback facilitator
