Description

The Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Exam Part 1 Study Group is facilitated by a moderator to assist IMGs to prepare for this examination. The current moderator is Dr. Nuruddin Lakhani. These sessions are being offered online due to COVID-19.

The MCCQE Part I is a summative examination that assesses the critical medical knowledge and clinical decision-making ability of a candidate at a level expected of a medical student who is completing his or her medical degree in Canada. The examination is based on the MCC Objectives, which are organized under the CanMEDS roles. Candidates graduating and completing the MCCQE Part I normally enter supervised practice. Aside from formal accreditation processes of the undergraduate and postgraduate education programs, the MCCQE Part I is the only national standard for medical schools across Canada and, therefore, is administered at the end of medical school.

The MCCQE Part I is a one-day, computer-based test. Candidates have four hours in the morning to complete 210 Multiple-Choice Questions and up to three and a half hours in the afternoon for the Clinical Decision-Making component, which consists of 38 cases with short-menu and short-answer write-in questions. For specialist IMGs, the QE1 requires a complete review of all areas of medicine.

AIMGA’s MCCQE1 study groups are offered throughout the year on a quarterly basis. AIMGA provides computer software study materials and other relevant resources as a means of preparation (i.e. UWorld, QBank, MCC Preparation materials).

Description

AIMGA’s health and wellness team meetings are held on Fridays from 9:30 to 10:30 am. This group was formerly known as our COVID Response Team which had been formed to assist AHS with the Cargill Food Outbreak. Our members called employees to educate them in first languages and created video-mediated materials in 19+ languages to educate newcomers in Alberta about COVID19 and the vaccine. These video-mediated materials are available on our HealthHub page on our website and we encourage you to share these. Our members have also conducted webinars in first languages and in English to newcomers enrolled in ESL/LINC classes and in the community. We’ve now launched AIMGA’s HealthHub for Newcomers.

The health and wellness team meetings are informal discussions on updates around COVID, the vaccine, and other health-related topics. We’ve had various guest speakers and presentations on community and research initiatives. Every 3rd Friday of the month, one of our members presents the latest chapter in an epidemiology book we are reading.
