Overview

An Overview of the MCCQE Part 2 Exam
Evaluation of candidates during the exam is based on expectations of physicians in the Canadian healthcare system. Presentations and demonstrations will cover exam expectations for physician-patient communication, expectations of the physical exam, and data gathering and interpretation.
 
An Introduction to the Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE) Format
This exam format is used by Canadian medical schools, the Medical Council of Canada (QE Part 2), the College of Family Physicians of Canada, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Candidates interact with “standardized patients” who are actors trained to realistically portray typical patient presentations while physician examiners observe and grade the candidates’ performance. During the course, the marking process and expectations of the candidates will be explained. Candidates will have a chance to practice interacting with typical exam structure involving standardized patients, and will receive individualized feedback from physician examiners as part of the exam preparation course.
 
Introduction to CLEO
Consideration of legal, ethical, and organizational aspects of medical practice.
 
UBC CPD gratefully acknowledges the support of the Joint Collaborative Committee in the delivery of BC-PIP .
