NAC PRA programs are seeking experienced family physicians to become assessors of participating International Medical Graduate candidates. As an assessor, you will supervise and work with candidates in a family practice setting in order to determine their readiness and qualification for independent practice in the province of assessment.

While requirements vary across provincial programs, assessors generally work in a team of two or three assessors in order to adequately evaluate the candidate’s performance. There are different qualifications depending on whether you wish to be designated as a primary or secondary assessor.

Why become an assessor?
  • Give back to your profession
  • Support medical care in underserved rural areas
  • Apply for continuing professional development credits from the College of Family Physicians of Canada
  • Be remunerated
  • Receive a face-to-face training workshop, and additional online learning modules
