    MCCEE for J1 Visa...?

    Advertisements



    Hey guys,

    I'm a medical student in the UK, Canadian/British dual citizen. I grew up in Canada, did my BSc in Ontario and now am in England doing MD.

    I graduate May-July, 2012.

    I'm applying Sept.1, 2011 for NRMP match in the U.S. I want to do my residency on J1 visa.

    I know that MCCEE is required for J1 visa. My question is, how strict is Health Canada on when I do my MCCEE in order to get the statement of need?

    I read that MCCEE has to be done within 9 months of my graduation.

    I apply on writing it Sept, 2011. I graduate May-July 2012. I'm not sure exactly when I get my official diploma, because we get our exam results early May, but I think I may get my M.D. diploma in July?

    Is that an issue then? Since July, 2012 is 10 months away from September, 2011, not 9. Obviously, I know I could do the MCCEE in October, but I have my exams then and am very busy, and I may have to go to the U.S as well for interviews in October.

    So ideally Sept, 2011 would be best. Also because I am doing USMLE Step 2 CK around August, which will help for MCCEE.

    A reply would be appreciated, thanks.

    your question would best be answered by e-mailing Health Canada or the MCC.....they would then be able to give you the official answer without having to rely on people on forums. I took mine within 9 months of my graduation, as did everyone else I know, so we really wouldn't be able to tell you.
