Employment Requirements

General information on Registration (Licensing), Canadian examinations, and Immigration requirements is provided in this section to assist physicians seeking employment in British Columbia.

The College of Physicians & Surgeons of BC (CPSBC) is the licensing body for family practitioners and specialist physicians in British Columbia. Additionally there are three bodies involved in the credentialling of physicians in Canada.

  1. The Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) is a national organization responsible for setting standards for specialties in Canada.
  2. The College of Family Physicians of Canada & Surgeons of BC (CFPC) is a national organization of physicians providing certification in family medicine.
  3. The Medical Council of Canada is the national organization responsible for establishing and promoting a qualification in medicine known as the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC).

If you are an International Medical Graduate, the CPSBC requires completion of the Medical Council of Canada (MCC) Evaluating Exam before you can practise in BC.  This doesn't apply to US or Canadian medical school graduates.  As a condition of ongoing licensure, you may be required to complete MCC Qualifying Exams Part 1 and 2 within three to five years after you start practising in BC.

 

Please note:  In order to meet eligibility requirements, Psychiatrists who have completed postgraduate training in Australia and New Zealand must have qualified with the RANZCP in the year 2000 or later.
