English Language Proficiency

A valid English Language Proficiency test with minimum scores required is necessary for each program cycle application.

All applicants to the 2025 Cycle must provide valid and current evidence of English language proficiency by way of ONE of the following options:

Option A

Proof of valid English Language Proficiency test dated no earlier than May 01, 2023 (result must be valid and current for 2025 Externship) AND minimum scores achieved on a single test.

  • The Administrative Exception (AE) process is not to be used to request approval for the submission of an ELP test dated earlier than May 01, 2023.
  • The deadline for Option A ELP proof submission is August 30, 2024 @ 3:30 PM MT, with no extensions or exceptions. This includes all Enquiry on Results (EoR), appeals, re-writes, re-marking, and re-evluations.
  • The AIMG Program does not accept or process results sent directly from the testing centre. Do not submit results in this manner.
  • The AIMG Program will not accept any physical copies of ELP results. All results must be uploaded by August 30, 2024 @ 3:30 PM MT.

Option B

Exemption from English language proficiency testing as per the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA).

  • ELP exemptions are subject to CPSA approval.
  • CPSA retains the right to deny any ELP exemption should the proof provided fail to clearly outline that the applicant meets the exemption criteria.
  • A CPSA practice permit acquired for the CAP 2024 Cycle will not be recognized as ELP exemption by CPSA for AIMG Program application to the 2025 Cycle.
  • Individual conversations with CPSA registrars do not constitute as appropriate possibility of ELP exemption.

NOTE: The ELP Exemption Survey is closed as of May 31, 2024 at 3:30 PM MT
