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
