NON-ESSENTIAL EXAM WHICH SEEMS TO ONLY SERVE TO FINANCE THE MCC AT THE EXPENSE OF NEWLY MINTED DOCTORS

The saga of the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Exam (MCCQE) Part II continues. This exam has been cancelled more than once since spring 2020, and its possible return in mid-second wave of COVID-19 is jeopardizing the delivery of services from at least 200 family physicians who will have to leave their posts and place appointments with their patients on hold to return to school. But the MCCQE Part II is a needless exam, increasingly called into question, particularly since the competencies associated with resident doctors’ professionalism are already assessed by the medical faculties.

Competence by Design (CBD)

The Royal College is continuing to integrate the various training programs into the competency-based approach, or Competence by Design. Already, eight programs have been following the CBD model since July 1, 2018. Last year, the FMRQ had published a report on the impact of CBD on Quebec’s medical residents, based on semi-structured interviews conducted on two of these programs. Early in 2019, the FMRQ will be polling medical residents registered in CBD in the eight programs concerned, to see whether our recommendations have been taken into consideration and identify any issues that still deserve attention from us and the other stakeholders concerned.
