Student – Admission to the undergraduate program


In Quebec, an undergraduate student must have applied for and received, before October 16 of his/her first year of medical training, a registration certificate that authorizes him/her to perform, under supervision, the medical activities required to complete his/her training in accordance with the Regulation respecting professional activities that may be engaged in by other than physicians.

Furthermore, the student must perform these professional activities in accordance with the standards applicable to physicians, particularly those relating to professional ethics and the keeping of records and consulting rooms.

If you are a student in a faculty of medicine outside Québec and you would like to complete clinical rotations (training periods) in Québec:
You must be accepted by a faculty of medicine in Québec. The latter will confirm your acceptance with the Collège des médecins du Québec (CMQ). An email from the CMQ will invite you to complete your Application for registration through the Online services of the CMQ. You will be given a user code and password so that you can access this form. The registration certificate will then be issued to you.

If you are a student in a faculty of medicine outside Canada:
In addition to the registration certificate, you will receive a letter of eligibility from the CMQ. You must show this letter to the Canadian immigration authorities when you enter the country. 

Registration may be revoked as provided for in the CMQ’s Regulation respecting causes, terms and conditions for issuing and revoking registration in medicine.
