Starting in April 2019, we will be delivering the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part I in Canada and internationally to over 500 sites in 80 countries, up to five times per year.

Application to the 2019 MCCQE Part I opened in October 2018. For 2019 only, scheduling, previously expected to start in early December, will instead start in mid-January 2019. After that point, it will be continuously available.

As confirmed in a decision by PGME Deans, beginning with the 2020 CaRMS R-1 Main Residency Match, the MCCQE Part I will replace the MCCEE as the prerequisite for IMGs applying for postgraduate medical education in Canada.

We will continue to update mcc.ca and mccevolution.ca in the coming months with more information on the 2019 international delivery of the MCCQE Part I.
