Medical Education Division

A higher standard of education

Dr. Anne-Marie MacLellan
Director of Medical Education


The mandate of the Medical Education Division (MED) is to ensure that future physicians develop the necessary competence to practice medicine independently and to establish professional education standards for all family medicine and specialty programs. The MED’s sphere of activities encompasses undergraduate and graduate medical education and continuing medical education.

The Medical Education Division develops and updates the standards and general and specific orientations of the Collège des médecins du Québec (CMQ) with respect to the training of physicians. It enforces regulations governing the accreditation of training programs and is also responsible for the accreditation of continuing medical education units for Quebec’s four faculties of medicine and medical organizations that offer continuing professional development activities to physicians in Quebec. It reviews applications and issues permits to practice and specialist’s certificates. It issues registration certificates and training cards to medical students and residents. It carries out liaison activities with provincial, national and international bodies and participates in research and development activities in the field of clinical competence evaluation.

You can contact the staff of the Medical Education Division from Monday to Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m and on Friday, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
