Reapplying for the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE)
- Application to the MCCEE is ongoing; you can reapply at any time. See reapplying for the MCCEE.
- Before you reapply, please consult the Application Steps toward the bottom of the “Apply” page, click on “your Application Steps”, and answer the simple questions that will lead you to the set of MCCEE Application Steps that apply to you.
Note: As a reapplicant, you will have to answer “No” to the question, “Is this your first time applying to the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination?”
The Application Steps will take you through the reapplication process from start to finish, from completing and submitting your online application to printing the required form(s), determining if any other documentation is required, and sending your paper application to the MCC office if applicable.
- Please see examination fees, toward the bottom of the page, for additional information.
Once you have submitted your online application
Once your online application is submitted successfully, you will receive an email message indicating that a communication has been added to your MCC-Online account.
- If you previously applied to the MCCEE as a GRADUATE, and the source verification of your medical diploma, or of your alternate to medical degree document(s), is completed or in progress, it is possible that your MCC-Online communication could immediately indicate that your application has been accepted and that you can schedule your examination appointment with Prometric at any time. In this case, you would not need to submit any paper documentation to the MCC.
- If you previously applied as a graduate, but the message added to your MCC-Online account indicates that you must submit your paper application to the MCC, this means that the MCC requires documentation from you before your application can be accepted.
- If you previously applied to the MCCEE as a STUDENT, your MCC-Online communication will indicate that you must submit paper documentation to the MCC before your application can be accepted.
- If you are still a student at the time of reapplying online for the MCCEE (i.e., you have not yet completed all requirements for the medical degree), you may have to submit a new Dean’s Attestation form, depending on whether or not the expected graduation date provided on your original Dean’s Attestation form has passed. See the MCCEE Application Steps for a full explanation.
Note: If you are not required to submit a new Dean’s Attestation form, because the expected graduation date on your original Attestation form is still in the future, it is possible that you may only need to submit the paper Application form. If the Application form is the only paper document that you must submit to the MCC, you can fax it to 613-248-5234.
- If you were a student and you are now reapplying to the MCCEE as a graduate(i.e., you have completed all requirements for the medical degree since your previous MCCEE application), you must submit your medical degree document(s) to the Physician Credentials Registry of Canada (PCRC) for review and approval before your MCCEE reapplication can be accepted. See the MCCEE Application Steps for a full explanation.
- If you are required to submit any documentation to the MCC:
- Allow two to three weeks for processing.
- Check your MCC-Online account regularly to check for updates.
- Once your application is processed, a communication will be added to your MCC-Online account to indicate whether your application is complete or incomplete. You will be sent an email to notify you that a communication has been added to your MCC-Online account.
It is your responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of your MCC Candidate Code and MCC-Online Password in order to prevent the possibility of unauthorized access to your information.
