Recognition of Certification without Examination Issued by CFPC

Print page icon

There are two scenarios in which the CPSO will recognize your certification in lieu of a CFPC examination. They are:

  1. Certification without examination and completed an acceptable qualifying exam:

    You may be issued a restricted certificate of registration if you have a medical degree from an acceptable medical school and have:

    1. Successfully obtained certification without examination by the CFPC; and
    2. Successfully completed an acceptable qualifying examination as defined in the College’s Policy on Acceptable Qualifying Examinations.

    The following conditions will be placed on the certificate:

    1. You must practice with a mentor and/or supervisor until you have successfully completed an assessment.
    2. You must undergo an assessment after completing a minimum of one year of practice in Ontario. The certificate of registration automatically expires 18 months from the date of issuance, but we may renew it, with or without additional or other terms, conditions and limitations.

  2. Certification without examination and completed Parts 1 & 2 of the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination or obtained the LMCC:

    We may issue you a certificate of registration authorizing independent practice if you have a medical degree from an acceptable medical school and have:

    1. Successfully obtained certification without examination by the CFPC; and
    2. Successfully completed Parts 1 & 2 of the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination or obtained the LMCC.
