Canadian Conference on Medical Education

April 12, 2021

The Medical Council of Canada (MCC) is a proud partner of and pleased to participate in the virtual Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME) taking place from April 17 to 20, 2021. This year’s theme, “Making Waves: Exploring the Waters of Medical Education”, certainly resonates with the MCC, as this year challenged us to both make waves and navigate waves as we assisted candidates on the route to licensure during a global pandemic.

On Monday, April 19, 2021 from 12 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. Eastern Time (ET), the MCC’s virtual business session entitled: “A year of impacts and innovation at the MCC: the benefits and challenges of introducing remotely proctored high-stakes exams” will explore some of the lessons we learned as we shifted to offer the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part I using a remote proctored delivery model.

  • Find out more about how the MCC accelerated its shift to technology-enabled delivery of assessments
  • Learn about the impacts of the new delivery model on candidate experience as well as on exam psychometrics
  • Hear about how the lessons are being applied to the upcoming virtual delivery of clinical skills assessments


Dr. Maureen Topps, Executive Director and CEO, MCC
Ms. Becca Carroll, Manager, Knowledge & Decision-Making Assessments, MCC

Following the business session, the Assessment Innovation Task Force led by Dr. Kevin Eva will be holding a consultation session, from 12:45 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET, to collect stakeholder feedback that will inform recommendations to the MCC regarding future plans for assessments.
