Description

The Medical Communication Assessment Program (MCAP) is a new online program offered by AIMGA and is intended for IMGs who wish to enhance their understanding of patient-centered care, communication skills, and their cultural competence. The goals of MCAP are:

• To meet the needs of International Medical Graduates by providing effective training and resources to work successfully in the Canadian healthcare system
• To prepare IMGs who are either registered to take the NAC OSCE, applying to the CaRMS cycle, or PRA eligible.

The program is fully funded by IRCC and is open to IRCC eligible applicants in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba who are applying to 2023/4 CaRMS cycle, or are PRA ready.
MCAP Online includes synchronous classes accompanied by supplementary web-based modules. The classes are taught by a medical communication instructor and practicing physicians and involve interactions with standardized patients and feedback that is meant to improve the participant’s performance according to the Canadian context.
In addition to the currently running cohort (January 25th-April 16th 2022), the program will be offered from April to June.
All IMGs who meet the program eligibility criteria are welcome to apply.

For additional questions, please reach out to Rossalia Videlova at rossalia@aimga.ca or 403-452-6521

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. Faiza Saeed. 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).

Please note it is required that you register here on the website before accessing the study session with the following Zoom link:

In general (30-minute consultations; information and orientation):
– to discuss your background training and experience;
– to provide guidance on pathways to licensure;
– to answer questions you may have about pathways to licensure, AIMGA’s services and programs, and other supports; and
– to determine your next step with regard to your goals.

Licensure Pathway Support (1-hour consultations):
Our AIMGA staff members are here to help you with your application to AIMGP, CaRMs, PRA-AB, other PRA programs in other provinces. These sessions are typically one hour in length to assist you by reviewing application submissions, resumes, and personal statements for grammatical correctness and clarity.

Support may include a discussion of your background, interests, and employment needs. Or, if you have a job you are interested in applying for, we can review your resume and/or cover letter for example. Or, if you’ve been called for an interview, book a mock interview session with us to help you prepare. We are also here to discuss other pathways in healthcare.
