Clinical Skills Assessment Project (CSAP)

Thanks to special project funding from the Government of Alberta, the Alberta International Medical Graduate (AIMG) Program is piloting a two-part clinical assessment process commencing spring 2014. The Clinical Reasoning Examination (CRE) and the Clinical Assessment Placement (CAP) will provide an opportunity for International Medical Graduates (IMGs) to demonstrate critical thinking ability and real-life clinical skills in Alberta general medical practice settings. 

We hope the data obtained from this pilot project will allow for a more robust assessment process for IMGs entering into residency. Participation and data collection are vital to the success of the project.  AIMG Program applicants who were deemed eligible for the 2014 CaRMS Match and did not match in 2014 will be offered the opportunity to participate in the project.

More information about the CRE and CAP can be found here.

Reminder: NAC Exam Registration Change for 2015 Cycle

As announced in February 2013, the Alberta International Medical Graduate (AIMG) Program has moved to a national examination registration fee for the National Assessment Collaboration (NAC) examination in 2014. This change will make the AIMG Program consistent with the other provinces that offer the NAC exam. Starting in 2014, the exam fee will be collected through a centralized registration system run by the Medical Council of Canada (MCC).

The Medical Council of Canada (MCC) will offer registration for the National Assessment Collaboration (NAC) examination through the portal starting in November 2013. For more information on this announcement and the NAC, including the 2014 session dates and the 2014 national fee, please visit the MCC website.

Please note that AIMG Program applicants for the 2015 Cycle and all future cycles who require the NAC examination and wish to access priority for registration at an Alberta exam centre must:

  • apply to the AIMG Program and be deemed eligible;
  • apply to the MCC for NAC exam registration and be deemed eligible; and
  • pay exam registration fees to the MCC.
