Description:  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. Starting in 2018, you are allowed up to four hours in the morning session to complete 210 Multiple-Choice Questions. You are allowed up to 3.5 hours in the afternoon session for the Clinical Decision-Making component, which consists of 38 cases with short-menu and short-answer write-in questions.

The exam is based on a Blueprint that assesses your performance across two broad categories:

  • Dimensions of care, covering the spectrum of medical care;
  • Physician activities, reflecting a physician’s scope of practice and behaviors.

Each category has four domains, and each is assigned a specific content weighting on the exam:
