How to Apply in the new MCC system
Eligible candidates must log into our new physiciansapply.ca system and activate their account to apply to the MCCQE Part II.
In order to activate their account, candidates simply go to physiciansapply.ca and click “Login”. For optimal viewing and navigation, physiciansapply.ca should be accessed using the following web browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Internet Explorer 8 or 9
  • Safari
The new system is not designed to be accessed through a mobile device at this time. A tablet-compatible version of the system will be available in the near future.
Candidates should use their MCC-Online username and password to log into physiciansapply.ca for the first time. Once logged in, the account will need to be initialized. This process may take a bit of time to complete.
Candidates may also experience some formatting and usability issues, including:

  • The photo/signature will not be visible on their physiciansapply.ca account dashboard.
  • The “Create a new message” link on the right-hand (third) panel of the dashboard is not functional; candidates must use the link in the middle (second) panel to send a new message to the MCC.
The MCC will continue to work as quickly as possible to fix these issues.
Should candidates have any questions or concerns, they may contact the MCC Service Desk right away:
