MCCQE Part II Report to the Dean

MCCQE Part II Report to the Dean

The Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part II Report to the Dean is produced twice a year.

For Canadian universities, the report is normally produced four or five months after the May and October results are confirmed by the Central Examination Committee meeting. For non-Canadian universities, requests should be received by July 15, as reports are processed between July and September, with delivery at the end of September.

The MCCQE Part II Report to the Dean contains the following sections:

Sections I to V feature graphic presentations of your medical school’s mean total scores and subscores based on two categories assessed by the new Blueprint: Dimensions of Care and Physician Activities in comparison to other candidate groups:

  • Your school’s total test takers
  • Your school’s first-time test takers
  • Canadian medical graduate, Canadian postgraduate first-time test takers
  • International medical graduate, Canadian postgraduate first-time test takers
  • International medical graduate, International postgraduate first-time test takers
  • First-time test takers
  • Total test takers
  • Repeat test takers

In addition, there are two figures; one that illustrates the total score distribution, and the other that illustrates the pass rate for your school and other candidate groups.

The following table outlines the differences across Sections I to V.

Section Candidate graduate group
 I Postgraduate trainees from your postgraduate program
 II Medical graduates from your medical school (one year prior)
 III Postgraduate trainees from your postgraduate program who graduated from your medical school
 IV Medical graduates from your medical school who trained as residents at another postgraduate program
 V Postgraduate trainees from your postgraduate program who trained as medical students at another medical school

Section VI is a school specific table summarizing the results depicted in Sections I to V.

Section VII features a subset of the information from Section VI that contains results across exam sessions (e.g., the May 2019 exam session will include results from October 2018 and May 2019). For non-Canadian schools requesting a Report to the Dean that includes more than one examination session, no subscores are provided in the report.
