The Clinical Assessment Program is now only offered in October of each academic year.
Please visit the Timeline page for more information about the upcoming session.
A combination of Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination Part 1 (MCCQE1) and a file review will be used to select candidates for a CAP position.
Over the course of the one-day assessment (Multiple Mini Interview), we wish to identify candidates who demonstrate good potential for success in residency training and suitability for working in communities across B.C.
Application Materials and Fee
As part of the Clinical Assessment Program application process, you will need to share a variety of documents to illustrate that you are eligible to participate in the program. You will also need to submit a non-refundable $200 application fee.
Note: The application fee and following application materials will need to be shared with the Program by the application deadline — this applies to new and repeat applicants.
The following exam results and documentation must be shared with the Program via the PhysiciansApply.ca portal:
- MCCQE1: Share a copy of a passing MCCQE1 result.
- Medical Diploma: If you have graduated from a medical school, share a copy of your medical diploma from a medical school listed on the World Directory of Medical Schools. Note: If the diploma is not in English or French, you must also share a translation that meets the MCC’s requirements.
- Canadian Citizenship or Permanent Residency Documentation: Share a copy of a current passport, citizenship certificate or Permanent Resident Card (both sides). You must share an ID document via PhysiciansApply.ca. If you are sharing a non-Canadian passport or a Canadian passport or Permanent Resident Card that has now expired, you must email a copy of a current and accepted ID document to firstname.lastname@example.org
The following must also be received and accepted by the Program by the application deadline:
- CV: On the CAP application portal, upload your current CV.
- Application Fee: On the CAP application portal, pay the non-refundable $200 application fee using your credit card or debit card.
- Personal Health Number (for B.C. residents only): On the CAP application portal, submit your Personal Health Number (PHN), found on your BC Care Card or BC Services Card or equivalent from the Yukon, Northwest Territories, or Nunavut. Current coverage is required and will be verified by IMG-CAP staff.
Please note: In 2019, the NAC OSCE score is not required to apply to the IMG CAP; however, passing the NAC OSCE remains a requirement to submitting a 2019 CaRMS application. While short listed IMG CAP applicants who did not receive a passing NAC OSCE Score will still be able to participate in the 2019 IMG CAP, they will not be able to submit a 2019 CaRMS application.
An IMG CAP participant may repeat their participation (if successfully shortlisted on re-application) in the IMG CAP for a total of two times. The IMG CAP Score is valid for 3 years and the most recent score (if applicable) will be used in the CaRMS application.
