Description

What is the TDM? The Therapeutics Decision-Making (TDM) Examination aims to assess the competence of candidates at the level required of a family physician practicing independently and safely in Canada. The content is developed by the Medical Council of Canada (MCC), and the examination is administered by the MCC on behalf of the Practice-Ready Assessment (PRA) programs for use in the selection of candidates into PRA programs.

AIMGA’s Study Group! This is a 30-hour preparation program for those who have been deemed PRA eligible as a family medicine practitioner. AIMGA has a 95% pass rate for those who have been part of our TDM study group.

Meet our Moderator! Hira Waqar was born in Pakistan and moved to Canada in 2001. After finishing her high school, she completed her BSc in Biology from the University of Calgary. She then went on to get a MD degree from the American University of Caribbean. She completed clinical rotations in hospitals in the United States and England. Hira recently completed her family medicine training from Pakistan and is waiting for her PRA assessment to begin. She successfully passed the TDM and is looking forward to working with members of AIMGA to do the same. Hira has successfully taught our TDM course for the past 2 years.

To register: Please send your proof of PRA eligibility and/or TDM registration to Roman at roman@aimga.ca as this will be needed to guarantee your seat.

Please also note that 3 consecutive absences can lead to removal from the courses, so please only sign up if you know you will be free during these times.

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. Currently, we have several moderators for the QE1 at AIMGA. These sessions are being offered online.

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 study materials through our in-person medical library and other relevant resources as a means of preparation. We also have quest speakers that contribute to specialty area topics on a quarterly basis.

Please note it is required that you register here on the website before accessing the study session.

For questions and/or registration support please call us at 403-520-7730 or email Melat at melat@aimga.ca. We look forward to serving you.
