Hi , I did the exam in 2016. Toronto Notes and Q bank is all I used in terms of study material .

Also, I’d been a GP for 12 years in the UK before I moved and the experience really helped.

You just have to pass , the mark doesn’t have any other bearing as far as I’m aware .

Another thing- I did part one ,11 months after I started working in Canada as personally I felt I’d be more confident if I had some local knowledge/ work experience . There are some parts of the exam directed at how Provincial Health care is structured, care of First Nations and other Canadian healthcare specific (Public health) Issues. I wouldn’t say working here first is essential before doing the exam as you can read up the bits you need to know .

Some of the meds they use here are slightly different like the choice of antibiotic is different to what we’d use in the UK.

It was a slog as I was working , settling my family and studying but it is doable.

Good luck !

Thank you to everyone for the immensely helpful information in this thread. My partner and I are moving to Toronto this summer (2019) - I am a permanent resident and she is a Canadian citizen. She is also a UK-GP trainee, currently coming to the end of her ST3 year.

I am trying to still get my head around the details of the application for licensure, and wanted to check if my understanding is correct.... I think she needs to do the following:
  • Finish ST3 in the UK and obtain MRCGP and CCT
  • Get MRGP/CCT/Medical School Degree source verified through physicians apply
  • Apply to the CFCP for membership
    • followed by "Application process for recognition of training and certification from approved jurisdictions"
  • Identify an appropriate supervisor within Ontario.
  • Apply to the CPSO (Ontario licensing authority) for a restricted license.
  • Practice under supervision while studying for and sitting the MCQE1 and 2.
My questions are:
  1. I missing anything from the above process?
  2. Can anybody provide any advice for finding a supervisor in the GTA region. (Most advice previously appears to be regarding BC).
  3. Is there a minimum length of the supervisory period - or can she apply for an independant license as soon as she has passed MCCQE1 & 2

Thanks again to everyone who has posted their advice on here over the last few years - It has been incredibly useful! And thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to help me with my questions!
hi
Yes! you got it right. once you did your source verification then apply for CFPC membership. you will receive letter of eligibility which you can apply to CPSO for restricted license.
CPSO will give you up to 3 years to do QE! and QE2 to obtain your independent license.
look on HFO. you can email me if you are looking in Vaughan/Woodbridge area.

A bit of background, I’m in the process of source verification so I can do the MCCQE1 exam as soon as possible and are looking at Nova Scotia mainly because of a few incentives and proximity to the UK

Does anyone have any words of advice or experience as a family physician in this province as we have 2 young kids.

Also to speed up the process and make it as efficient as possible, following MCCQE1 what would you recommend. I’ve been told that the second part can be completed in Canada?

Has anyone on this forum successfully moved straight after CCT?

Apologies for the numerous questions but there’s a lot of Info out there and it all gets confusing.

thanks in advance
Hi Dayo

Also keen on trying to move with my son straight after my CCT - now due end of march 2021.

Also keen on the east coast. Did you do MCCQE1 yet?
Has COVID changed your CCT date etc?

I am confused ... I thought the college of Family Practitioners in Canada enabled British GPs with MRCGP qualification to have reciprocal certification over there without the need to do the MCCQE ..?

Hi,
I’m after a bit of advice. My boyfriend is a anaesthetist and is due to CCT in August 2022. We are planning on him applying for a fellowship in BC and me also coming out to work. I am a GP and will have been working for 18 months post CCT prior to starting.
The plan is to head over for a year and then return to the uk. I want to work as a GP but looking through the requirements it seems quite overwhelming!!
I am more than happy to do the exam... still unclear if I need both. My medical school is ok and on the list.
Any advice would be great!! I’m a bit lost!
